    "Online play for Switch games will be free until the full service comes online in 2018, at which point players will need to pay for membership in order to access online multiplayer. One month’s subscription will cost $3.99, with three months running to $7.99, and a year’s membership available for $19.99. In addition to multiplayer access, subscription also opens up eShop deals, meaning members will get money off new games bought through Nintendo’s digital download platform.

    Also included in that fee are monthly classic games from Nintendo’s back catalog, updated with multiplayer support and playable on the new console"

    Seems reasonably priced!

    don't see why it wouldn't be but I hope I can pay for it with funds on my eshop account I don't like buying funds with a credit/debit card on a system so I just go to a store and buy eshop giftcards and put funds on there that way
