Nintendo Switch Online app finally launches with Splatoon 2 in July

Splatoon 2 Nintendo Direct and the Best Splatoon 2 Deal Yet

During a Nintendo Direct livestream held to further detail Splatoon 2's launch features, the company also said its Nintendo Switch Online mobile app will premiere concomitant with the quirky, cooperative ink-based shooter's release.

For Nintendo Switch owners, this will be their first chance to try out the Nintendo Switch Online app and service, which will be free until sometime next year. SplatNet 2 will be part of an upcoming mobile app created to give the Switch some of the multiplayer features (voice chat, lobby making, etc.) that it's now missing.

Customization is much more varied in Splatoon 2, including eye color, hair style, and skin tone.

Simply titled Nintendo Switch Online, the app is a hub for communicating online with other Nintendo Switch players. I just checked to see if the demo client is downloadable yet and it wasn't, but you might have more luck depending on when you're reading this. All Splatoon amiibo also reward exclusive gear, and can be used to save gear and weapon loadouts.
