Nintendo Switch Software Update 6.0.0 Released September 18, 2018

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

I’m sorry to say online multiplayer for games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 is now over. Nintendo has just released a major software update for the Nintendo Switch. This new update brings in the new premium Nintendo online service which offers 2-player online NES classic games, and cloud save backups. An updated Nintendo Network smartphone app has also been released on Apple’s App Store and Google Play to make use of the new premium features. Online multiplayer on the Nintendo Switch now costs $20US a year.

Since nobody else has asked it I guess I will. If Nintendo can offer this kind of service for $20 a year as well as offer something similar to Game Pass, what’s Sony and Microsoft’s excuse for charging $60 a year on top of other paid services like Game Pass or PlayStation Now?
