Well, it's not confirmed or something, but I found out that Nintendo mentions "Emoji" in the Intellectual Property Notices in the copyrights section:

Share your opinions guys. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Considering the Wii U had the miiverse, i really don't think text chatting for online is out of the question at all (i know they're different beasts, but the point is Nintendo did have a way for us to communicate with each other in a sense, so to assume text chatting will be there seems resonable to me). I mean Nintendo can't just allow their online service to be as lackluster as it has been, charge for it, and assume everyone will be cool with that. I know we'll be getting classic games with new online functions as well, but even still, that alone isn't enough.

Point is, i can definitely see this happening. I'm very curious to see whay the Switch online program looks like next year.

Yeah, me too, but it's too bad that the switch doesn't has a microphone for voice chatting.
I can imagine myself in like 5 years from now want to play online games and having to connect a special headset to the phone and switch at the same time, like in Splatoon 2.
I hope the Emojis will be good tho.

They want us to use the smartphone app for voice chat. However, i see no reason that they can't implement voice chat directly into the Switch and to allow our bluetooth headsets to connect wirelessly, thereby eliminating the need for a mic built into the system. However, this is Nintendo who time and time again does head scratching moves like not allowing for such a thing, so i’m not personally holding my breath for such a thing, but all the same I don't necessarily think such a thing is entirely off the table either.

I can see them coming out with a Switch that does have a mic as well.

If Switch/Nintendoverse is actually a thing, people who didn't like Miiverse, probably going to hate it more with Emojis.

Yeah, I hope Nintendo will have their own Emojis with the switch logo and stuff. :)
Those wouldn't be emoji though, because the Switch isn't in the emoji set, nor does it resemble anything.

The emojis are probably used in the integrated web browser, so I don't think there is any direct connection to the future Switch online service

Oh yeah, I forgot the set is universal to all devices.
But still, I really wanna see where it goes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I hope not, I really liked those guys, especially in Wind Waker.
I think a poop emoji should be a symbol of something really shitty, for example Xenoblade Chronicles series or a Custom avatar from Sonic Forces.
