Switch version 6.0 removing ability to unlink Nintendo Account from user profiles

Nintendo is rolling out its Switch Online service next week

Nintendo Direct Officially Announced for Tomorrow

Nintendo Switch system update version 6.0.0 has been scheduled for September 18th, 2018 (Tuesday) at 5pm Pacific Time. The company has taken to Twitter to announce that the service will go live next week, on September 18 in the United States and September 19 in Europe.

The Nintendo Direct that was postponed last week will instead take place tomorrow, September 13, at 11pm BST, Nintendo said this morning.

In addition to facilitating online play, Nintendo Switch Online will include access to 20 NES games with online multiplayer components including The Legend of Zelda, Dr. Mario and Super Mario Bros. 3. I'd also recommend the cloud saves for those of you with massive completionist save files (looking at you, Breath of the Wild), so you don't have to worry about them being lost for some reason.

By this point, it seems we know pretty much everything we need to know about Nintendo Switch Online, save for one key detail: its release date.
