Nintendo Switch: Paid multiplayer heads to Australia in autumn 2017

Vooks.net’s Daniel Vuckovich has taken to Twitter to confirm Nintendo Switch details newly revealed through the console’s day one update.

First, Australian Switch owners will be able to take advantage of multiplayer for free until autumn 2017. At that time, Nintendo’s subscription fee will come into play, handling online play alongside an online-enabled NES or SNES game that will change monthly.

The update also confirms that the Switch’s iOS and Android online apps will be available in Australia this summer.
