Nintendo Direct to take place tomorrow, September 13

A year and a half after launching, the Nintendo Switch is finally getting an official online service.

The Splatoon 2 in-game gear is a free download code for people who purchase a 12-month Nintendo Switch individual or family membership. Some of the games that will be available at launch include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.

"Depending on the game, players can engage in online competitive or co-op multiplayer, or take turns controlling the action", Nintendo said earlier this year.

Nintendo started off today's Nintendo Direct with the debut of a teaser trailer for Luigi's Mansion 3, which is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

In addition to this, they've also confirmed that system software 6.0.0 will release alongside Nintendo Online.

"Friends can even watch each other play single-player games online, and "pass the controller" at any time".

That leaves only five days for you to make sure that your Switch profiles are linked to the proper account, or they'll be locked indefinitely.

Nintendo's rescheduled Direct event is now on September 13 at 3pm PT (6pm ET or 11pm BST), but is said currently to be focused on "information about upcoming Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch titles".
