We're coming up on a year and a half since the Nintendo Switch first launch, and yet the console still doesn't have a dedicated online service. That's finally going to change next month though, as Nintendo announced on Thursday that Nintendo Switch Online will launch "in the second half of September."
Nintendo first began discussing the online service back in January 2017 -- two months before the console launched. It was initially scheduled to roll out that summer, but Nintendo eventually pushed the release back to 2018, and later revealed that the service wouldn't be ready until this fall. It's been a long time coming, but now Switch owners just have a month and change left to wait until they can start paying to play games online.
