Nintendo Switch Mobile App will be released on July 21, 2017

Nintendo made the announcement at Nintendo Direct event that it would release its novel Nintendo Switch Online app on July 21st and this also happens to be the day when Splatoon 2 comes to stores.

Splatoon 2 is a competitive third-person shooter for the Nintendo Switch arriving on July 21. That app will, appropriately enough, be called Nintendo Switch Online, according to a press release.

SplatNet 2 will let players keep track of different stage schedules, stats, ranking details and the amount of ink they've spilled over the course of the game.

This feature can allow the users of the app to invite their other friends to participate in the matches that are held online.

The app will carry limited functions and compatibility upon its launch, but it is expected to support more games and offer more services as Nintendo further develops Nintendo Switch Online.

SplatNet 2 is a mobile phone feature that connects players to the game while they're on the go. After all, Splatfests kept the first game alive, luring more casual players back with each competition.

In 2018, Nintendo plans to begin charging an annual fee of $19.99 Dollars (about $24 CAD) to play games online.

Using the app, you'll be able to send invites via social media networks and messaging services which actually sounds interesting.

Interestingly, online play within Splatoon 2 will be free until the Switch Online service is rolled out in 2018. While Nintendo's services can't directly be compared to those of Microsoft and Sony's, these two giants charge $59.99 for the annual online subscription.

To start playing online, Switch owners will have to pay $19.99 per year, $7.99 for three months or $3.99 monthly. It will also allow players to order in-game items.

We\u0027ll have much more information on Splatoon 2 \/i momentarily.
