Nintendo have revealed initial plans for its paid online service for Switch, starting in 2018.
The system is currently being priced at $20 from next year, with players able to use the online services for free until the new service launches.
An early beta of the communication app, which works alongside this, will be available later this year in a cut down form but most of the features won’t be ready until next year. Switch players are already able to play games such as Mario Kart 8 online with the console for free.
The most exciting part of the reveal, though, is that Nintendo seem to have scrapped the idea of providing just one free classic game each month and has, instead, opened the vault to provide a bunch of NES, SNES and other possible classic games to play any time you want as part of the paid service.
