  • Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

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. While this means no more free multiplayer, it's also a service that, like PSN, will be giving you perks for subscribing. Additionally, Nintendo also gave updates on other first and third party titles coming to the Switch in the future, and also announced a plethora of ports coming to the hybrid console, such as City Skylines, Civilization VI, and Diablo 3. You can save a few bucks by opting for a three-month membership for $7.99 or a 12-month subscription for $19.99. Not all games will support this feature, but it's a relief to see Nintendo add a feature that should have been ready at launch.

Will you be signing up for Switch Online once it debuts on September 18th? Exclusive gear for Splatoon 2 will be given to anyone who purchases a 1yr membership, starting in early October. They will become available for order as a special offer to online service subscribers at an undisclosed date.

Trump’s former adviser George Papadopoulos sentenced to 14 days in jail
His attorneys say he cooperated fully. "We were going in there to cooperate potentially against those two individuals", he said. Before he must surrender to prison, Papadopoulos may be able to travel to NY and to California, where he plans to relocate.

There are "standard" online subscription functionalities like cloud saves. As usual, we'll be streaming it all live right here at Gamnesia and covering the exciting news as it breaks. The app allows players to voice chat with friends while playing certain games, with the example shown as Mario Tennis Aces.

This week's Nintendo Direct will be a 35-minute showcase of upcoming 3DS and Switch games.
