By the end of the month you'll no longer be able to play Nintendo games online for free, as Nintendo reschedules its cancelled Direct.

Once Switch Online is out the gate, you'll need an active subscription to play games online. However, it looks as if Nintendo will be shedding some more light on the matter tomorrow, when it will be hosting a new Direct presentation. These will include Super Mario Bros, Ice Climbers, and the original Legend of Zelda. As a reminder, the Nintendo Switch Online official website notes it will be $3.99 for one month, $7.99 for three months, $19.99 for twelve months, and $34.99 for a twelve-month family membership.

Nintendo Switch Online pricing plans in Canada will start at $4.99 per month.
