Nintendo Switch Online Smartphone App Launches On 21st July

Since this will only be the first iteration of the Nintendo Switch Online app, it's likely new features will launch for the app over the coming months as they become available or new games are released.

Splatoon 2 comes with a host of features available through the Nintendo smartphone app, allowing users to customise their load-outs and examine their multiplayer statistics.

Nintendo's new app, called Nintendo Switch Online, acts as a central hub for all app-compatible games.

For instance, in Splatoon 2, you'll be able to access SplatNet2 via the smartphone app. When it does, you'll be able to order gear using in-game money, and then pick up your purchases next time you play!

As for what could most likely be shown during Thursday's Nintendo Direct livestream, GameRant reports that fans expect to get a closer look at the game's various weapons and customization options. 3, Dr. Mario, and Balloon Fight.

Trump's frosty phone call with Chinese President Xi
It added that the two leaders were looking forward to meeting at this week's G20 meeting in Hamburg, Germany. The Trump administration is rapidly adopting a more confrontational stance toward China across the board.

Online play in Splatoon 2 and other Nintendo Switch games will be free until Nintendo Switch Online is rolled out sometime 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. No definite date, however, has been set for the launch of the service.

It's even possible to browse and purchase gear from a SplatNet shop, using coins that you've earned in-game. There will also be a list of people with whom you are playing and has played previously.

"Splatoon 2" recently made an appearance during the Nintendo Treehouse livestream at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event.
