Nintendo Switch Online service launching this September and Mario Kart mobile announced for 2019

The Nintendo Switch has almost been out a year already and the previously-announced Nintendo Switch Online service that was meant to launch in 2018, just a few months after the Switch, has been in dark since then. Nintendo delayed the online service that would offer free games every month similar to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Gold but up to now, they have not said anything regarding its launch. If you have been playing online on your Switch it is mainly due to the service being in a free trial mode for everyone until Nintendo nailed down just when the service was actually going to launch. 

According to Wall Street Journal's Takashi Mochizuki, he tweeted insider information that Nintendo is indeed preparing to launch the service later this year and at the moment they are "preparing some attractive content and programs for subscription-based online membership". This could mean that Nintendo is making sure that your monthly subscription is worth your dollar. This could mean prepping the Virtual Console games or perhaps readying the console for theme support and Netflix too. We will have to wait and see what this service will include when it launches but at least we know Nintendo has not completely forgotten about it.

In other news, Nintendo has revealed that they are currently developing a Mario Kart mobile game. According to their Twitter account, Mario Kart Tour is set for release before March 2019. While very little detail about the game has been revealed we can guess that it might be a free-to-play game with additional purchases added such as customization and even character unlocks. Regardless, I would love to play Mario Kart on my iPhone as I play Animal Crossing and Mario Run almost every day. 

Would you play a Mario Kart on your phone? Let us know in the comments below.
