Switch's Splatoon 2 Splatfest Demo, New Characters Marina/Pearl, And More Details Revealed

During the Splatoon 2 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed that it will release Nintendo Switch Online for iOS and Android.

Nintendo is launching a smartphone app for players using its all-in-one Switch console.

Thanks to the Nintendo Switch Online app, players will be able to take Nintendo wherever they go.

Players will be able to review their previous matches and player statistics, and examine the gear load out of allies and opponents. The Switch Online mobile app does a lot more than voice chatting, though: the app is a hub for online-enabled games, which have their own in-app companion modules.

If you missed the Splatoon 2 Direct yesterday no worries!

Once the app is downloaded, you then have to connect the headset to an arrow-shaped device which further splits off into two more wires.

Mainly it has been formed with the online experience of suitable games on the Nintendo Switch in mind. Here are the Wii U games that must come to Nintendo Switch. For now, however, Nintendo is letting owners test some of those features for free, at least until the paid service launches in full next year. You can join in by downloading the title's free demo in the eShop.

Nintendo Switch Online will cost $19.99 per year, $7.99 for three months, or $3.99 per month.

In addition to online battle results, you can check out the weapons and gear that other Inklings you've played with have used. The usual clothing options will be available to purchase in the Inkopolis Galleria, and you can hang out in the social lobby of Inkopolis Square.

That the people deploying the lack of vocal chat and therefore of teamplay in Splatoon 1 are reassured, Splatoon 2 will have a voice chat through the mobile application of the Switch.
