An official Tweet confirms that Nintendo’s paid online service will be starting soon. From September 18th and on, all users will need to join Nintendo’s online service to play online.

While we’re sad online will no longer be free, the Tweet mentions that everyone can receive a free two week trial. You’ll get just a little bit of extra time to enjoy online multiplayer for free, and enjoy the benefits of Nintendo’s premium service.

As a quick reminder, Nintendo has already released pricing information about its service. One month of service will be $3.99, three months will be $7.99, and twelve months will be $19.99. For those who are interested in sharing accounts, the twelve month Family Plan costs $34.99.

More details will be coming on the September 13 Nintendo Direct. Please look forward to our coverage then.
