Many of you may remember when Nintendo revealed the Switch, they mentioned something about a subscription-based online service. While we still know practically zilch about the service, we managed to get some information about just how much it will cost. If these figures hold up, it will be cheaper (annually) than what Sony and Microsoft is currently offering.

Gamespot is reporting (via Twitter) that Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima revealed a possible price point of the online service to Japanese publication Nikkei. It would seem that the online service could cost somewhere between 2,000 to 3,000 yen annually. Which in Trump America terms would make it about $17.62 to $26.44 yearly.

With all that being said, there is still a distinct possibility that the price could be higher in other regions. However, when you factor in the Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus could run you about $60 without a sale, Nintendo would have some room to play.

As we know from the presentation, when the Switch is launched in March access to the service will be free. Sometime in the fall, it will begin charging for the service. There is still more information that will need to be released prior to the consoles launch but we will have to see just how long they will wait to announce it. Possibly after everyone has their hands already on the console.
