This functionality will be free until the launch of the Nintendo Online service Switch, which is scheduled for 2018. At the time of the initial announcement, the Japanese company did not say anything about the perceived value of subscription is quite logical, since the launch of the paid service will take place only next year.
The service should cost $ 4 a month or $ 20 per year. This means that unlike services like PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live that cost the players at $60 per year fee for the online service Nintendo is about 2-3 times less. Even taking into account the free monthly games from Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo has some advantage.
