Nintendo Direct set for 9/13, will include Switch Online details

In addition to facilitating online play, Nintendo Switch Online will include access to 20 NES games with online multiplayer components including The Legend of Zelda, Dr. Mario and Super Mario Bros. 3. Online play, Save Data Cloud backup and Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app features available in compatible games. Once September 18's updated is installed, you won't be able to unlink the profiles anymore.

In addition to the base game, the Switch edition also comes with two DLC packs for free.

However, they are "Exclusively" for Nintendo Switch Online members.

The company had planned a Nintendo Direct event for September 6th, but that has been rescheduled to September 13th (3PM PDT), where the company will share new information about upcoming Switch and 3DS titles. For instance, Civilization 6 was confirmed for Switch on the game's official website, but all promotional details were quickly scrubbed away after showing up online.

What are your thoughts on the Nintendo Switch Online service? Nintendo is also promising a new Animal Crossing title in the same year, as well as Yoshi's Crafted World. Prior to this change, you should verify that your Nintendo Account or your childs Nintendo Account is linked to the correct user profile.

Nintendo has just announced via social media that the Direct will indeed air tomorrow, September 13th.
