Nintendo plans to finally start its subscription-based online services in September 2018, and details will be announced later this year. That means the online functionality Switch owners now enjoy for free will be gated behind a paywall later this year.

According to Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima, the goal for the developer and publisher is to support Switch over a 5-6 year period, which is the traditional run for game consoles.

Nintendo maintains that the goal for the online service is to enhance gaming experiences and to expand the online functionality of the Switch.

Nintendo has yet to announce anything about the games coming out in the second half of the year, so we don't know anything for sure. Currently, online play is free to Nintendo Switch owners as a trial until September.

Once the paid service goes live, users will be able to choose whether they wish to pay by month, annually, or every three months. One of these is online services, and thankfully, they are going to make it an actual thing this year.
