Subscribers will also be able to use Nintendo Switch mobile app features to "enhance their online experience" and receive special offers.

Nintendo provided an update for its upcoming Switch online service, and while we don't have an exact date yet we can expect to see it launch sometime in the second half of September. Today's announcement sadly doesn't bring any other new information.

In case you missed it, Nintendo Switch Online will finally allow users to back up save files in the cloud. The collection will initially include 20 games, with more added on a regular basis. 3, and Donkey Kong are confirmed for launch - alongside 10 still unannounced titles. Friends can even watch each other play single-player games online, and "pass the controller" at any time.
