Nintendo has announced that the Switch's online service will launch in the US on September 18 and in the UK on September 19.

In addition, the format holder is offering a seven-day free trial for those who sign up for the service via the Nintendo eShop.

That's literally all there is to know right now, with Nintendo confirming more details will be released tomorrow during the rescheduled Direct event.

Nintendo Direct will kick off tomorrow at 11pm GMT.
