What we know so far: It'll cost about $20 yearly Free monthly games are only monthly rentals Voice-chat will be done via a smartphone app This online paid service will come in fruition during Summer 2017 or later And so on. I'm not in the least optimistic about it but as I imagine I'll be playing Mario Kart 8: Deluxe for years to come, if Nintendo handles this properly then most customers will be happy to pay for it. Changing things such as, rental to keeping the games (as long as you're a paid member) and voice-chat via the console (the Original Xbox and PS2 both had voice-chat so don't tell me the Switch can't handle it). And one thing that's extremely lacking right now... the eShop! The eShop is so bare-bones that I hope it becomes meaty, organised and more popular by the time Nintendo starts charging us to play online. I know, for $20 you can't expect a whole lot but those things are pretty standard to have in today's gaming world so Nintendo shouldn't get a pass if they end up charging and having an online shitty service. 16 days to go 'till MK8D is out (yes, I'm super thrilled for the big day and I'll go straight to online play).
