Check back here tomorrow for all of the news from the Nintendo Direct and if Animal Crossing gets announced, please pinch us so we know that we're not dreaming.

Ninty has provided more details on the whole account linking and unlinking here and here, so give it a read if you're a bit lost.

Nintendo has announced their Switch Online memberships will launch in Canada, the U.S. and beyond on September 18, 2018. For individual memberships, one, three and 12-month subscriptions will cost $3.99, $7.99 and $19.99, respectively. You can make use of a seven-day free trial by signing up on the Nintendo eShop starting September 18.

Despite being classic NES games, Nintendo has at least been kind enough to add some modern day functionality to them.

"Friends can even watch each other play single-player games online, and "pass the controller" at any time". There will also be cloud-based saves. Most of it showed off several of the games with online support, including obvious choices such as Minecraft, Splatoon 2, Super Smash Bros.

Finally, there's the very inconvenient voice chat process for online games.

After the maintenance is done, version 6.0.0 will be available in the Switch eShop, and you will be able to purchase a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.
