As reported on the official Nintendo.com site, we're told that Nintendo Switch Online will be ready by "the second half of September", so it'll take a bit longer than anticipated.

The Japanese gaming giant had only previously announced that the services will go live in September but now we know that they won't be up before the first two weeks at least. Each titles has newly added online play.

The Nintendo Switch Online service isn't free. It should also be noted, that the NES games up on offer, will for the first time, feature online capabilities, which should help breath in some fresh air to the otherwise standard lineup of classic titles. At launch, you'll get access to the NES hits Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros 3, Donkey Kong, Ice Climber, The Legend Of Zelda, Mario Bros, Soccer, Super Mario Bros, and Tennis. An additional 10 launch games will be announced in the future. You can also download the smartphone app which includes the communication service that players can use to communicate with others when playing online. However, we are still without an exact release date.

Additionally, Save Data Cloud backup will now be implemented, giving players the option to send and receive game data at the drop of a hat which provides peace of mind should a player lose or damage their system. This helps in retrieving the game data if somehow the system gets lost or start the game with a new one. If you ever want to chat Nintendo, you've come to the right place.
