Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima let loose with a new tidbit concerning Nintendo's online plans for the Switch. When it comes to pricing in Japan, the service is going to cost somewhere around the equivalent of $17.50 to $26.50 a year. That's certainly less than most were expecting! Let's hope that same price approach hits the rest of the world.
As for why Nintendo is going with a paid online service, Kimishima says doing so makes it easier for Nintendo to support online features like multiplayer and the download of classic games.
