Yeah, it doesn't seem likely to me either, but that "would" be nice.

Nintendo dedicated a lot of resources and five years of development into producing TLoZ: Breath of the Wild, so why are the details of the online services not already available before launch? If Nintendo can dedicate that much resources into producing a launch title like Breath of the Wild, I'm sure they have enough resources to have had everything straightened around before the Switch launches. I mean, they are a multi-billion dollar company. I think the delay on the online services will be unattractive to a lot of people and it may spell doom for the console's launch sales. Unless Nintendo is doing it this way on purpose because they are somehow trying to see if the paid online services will be successful beforehand.

I don't think they said the online won't be there at launch, just it won't be paid, as in it'll be FREE until fall

Oh, I thought they had mentioned that some of the online services for the Switch wouldn't be available until Fall.

This is awesome! Apparently, you can have up to eight separate Nintendo Accounts on a single Switch console, and they can be different regions! This makes it possible to have access to multiple Nintendo eShop storefronts from different countries!

I'll use my Mother and my brother's name for the PAL and Japanese eShops. No more waiting for localization unless there's a good reason to.

I wonder when we'll find out details regarding Virtual Console games in the Switch eShop...

Yeah, without a Wii mode we might lose a lot of the games that we've already downloaded that never made it to the WiiU Virtual Console. Hopefully there will at least be a WiiU and 3DS mode available.

@william yeah unless it reads as a discount still. The few wiiware games I have came to mind especially Mega Man 9 and 10 as they would be fun on the go
