So if you want to play some co-op Splatoon 2 or maybe some ARMS, then you'll need one of these. Nintendo announced on Wednesday that Nintendo Switch Online memberships will kick off on September 18th, which is less than a week away. You can also watch the event on Nintendo's Twitch channel. We might hear about more games during the Nintendo Direct on Thursday. Some of the games that will be available at launch include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros. There are options for both individual and family memberships (up to 8 users).

Nintendo will reveal further details about the plans tomorrow, during its rescheduled Direct show. If you somehow manage to lose your Switch or it gets damaged, you can recover your cloud saves and any purchased digital content without too much hassle, along with your Nintendo Switch Online account.
