  • Splatoon 2 Nintendo Direct live stream

But while Switch owners bid their time for that date, Nintendo will at least be giving them a foretaste by making the Nintendo Switch Online app available in two weeks, right in time for Splatoon 2's launch. The Japanese company confirmed during a Nintendo Direct event on Thursday that users would get the first look at the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app on July 21st. That app will, appropriately enough, be called Nintendo Switch Online, according to a press release.

"The app will let you chat with friends in your online lobby before your game begins, then talk to your teammates to coordinate strategy once the game begins", the announcement says.

The Direct went into a lot of detail about weapons, gear, shops, and game modes, most of which will seem very familiar to those that played the original on Wii U.

Presumably, as more Switch games are released, the app's capabilities will be expanded, so we ask you: What games do you think could work well with an app like this?
