Fortnite players won't need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to keep playing the battle royale game on Nintendo's console.

The only way this crap stops is if everyone avoid these dumbass services and let it flop. I guarantee Nintendo will backtrack and end this online service fee crap.

Nintendo Switch Online is launching this week, with the House of Mario releasing their first ever paid-for online service.

Nintendo Online launches September 18th, 2018 for Nintendo Switch and will allow "users to participate in online gameplay, as well as provide additional benefits like a collection of classic NES titles, and will gift members with some exclusive, special offers, as well".

One of the bigger surprises during the Nintendo Direct was the reveal of the NES style controllers for Switch. That said, there is no indication as to what those other games might be.

So Liverpool have the flawless opportunity to scout one of their most ambitious transfer targets first hand. Danny Ings has made a good start to life at Southampton , scoring twice in his first four appearances.

According to Ninty's support pages, not every game that supports online play will require the online subscription. As we explained in our Switch Online breakdown, one month of the service costs $4, three months costs $8, and a year's subscription costs $20.

The Joy Cons have their own icons which change colour depending on the design of the pads.

At the end of last month dataminers found the Switch's upcoming firmware 6.0.0 has already been uploaded to Nintendo server, Nintendo Life reported.

It will be interesting to see how Nintendo Switch Online is when it hits.

The Nintendo Switch Online Service is launching in the United Kingdom on Wednesday September 19. Also, you'll only need one online membership for your family of Switch consoles provided all of your consoles are linked to the same account.
