Nintendo Switch online multiplayer won’t be free

There’s a lot to love about Nintendo, but it’s always been a generation behind the curve when it comes to online services. The Nintendo Wii was hampered by an awkward friend code system, and the Wii U’s network services were weird, goofy and heavily monitored. With the Switch that all might change: Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima just announced Nintendo Online Services — the company’s latest attempt to figure out online multiplayer. Kimishima didn’t reveal much about the service, but in general the news is good: Nintendo Online Services sounds a lot like Sony and Microsoft’s multiplayer services. The bad news: Just like those services, it will cost you a monthly fee.
