Nintendo Switch Online will be “worth the wait” but Nintendo 3DS is in “uncharted territory”

Nintendo recently announced that Nintendo Switch Online will launch in September 2018. The paid subscription service will be compatible with games with online components, including Pokkén Tournament DX. According to company president Tatsumi Kimishima, the long wait will be worth it. “We have some ideas about how to make Nintendo Switch Online appealing when it becomes a for-pay service, ” he said. “So I think our next announcement will be worth the wait.”

In regard to the future of Nintendo 3DS, however, Kimishima had this to say: “Nintendo 3DS continues to sell, so for now we hope consumers will embrace it together with Nintendo Switch. But as for what transpires in the future, that is uncharted territory.”
