The company had planned a Nintendo Direct event for September 6th, but that has been rescheduled to September 13th (3PM PDT), where the company will share new information about upcoming Switch and 3DS titles. For those of you who don't have a calendar handy, that's next Tuesday, so we're less than a week out from Switch Online's official launch.

"You can sign-up for a 7-day free trial from Nintendo #eShop at launch!" Originally set to launch in 2017, Nintendo ended up having to delay the service multiple times before eventually landing on the second half of September. Additionally, a 12-month family plan will be available for $34.99 which lets a Nintendo account holder invite up to seven others to join their group and all will have access to Nintendo Switch Online.

Google upgrades its USB-C to 3.5mm adaptor

Nintendo has announced new timing details for its next Nintendo Direct broadcast. That all changed today, as Nintendo finally gave Switch Online an actual release date. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda. You can save a few bucks by opting for a three-month membership for $7.99 or a 12-month subscription for $19.99.
