Seemingly out of nowhere, Nintendo has released a few more details about their upcoming paid online service that will be required to play online games on the Switch when it launches. We don't have all the details yet, and we still haven't heard anything about Virtual Console, but I imagine we'll know more after E3 rolls around in a few weeks. The two most noteworthy details are that the paid service has been pushed back to 2018 and that it will cost $19.99 per year.

The new Webpage detailing the service also mentions that among the games that can be downloaded as part of the subscription are Super Mario Bros. 3, Balloon Fight, and Dr. Mario. Kotaku has also been able to confirm that contrary to an earlier statement, subscribers will be able to play all games available as long as they subscribe, and the free games will not expire after a month. If you're interested in trying the service out before commiting to a yearly subscription, you can purchase 1 month for $3.99 or 3 months for $7.99.
