The launch of Splatoon 2 will not only provide a vital injection of the Nintendo Switch, but also serve to give birth to the official Nintendo Switch Online app, which from next Friday will begin to operate with all the features announced below we will review. However, from the moment we write these lines can now be accessed via iOS and Android to Nintendo Switch Online.
* To emphasize that to be able to use the App will be necessary to have iOS 9.0 or later; In Android the minimum version is Android 4.4.
The first thing to know is that this app is born with the intention not only to complement the game experience of the titles of the current hybrid platform of the company but to establish direct contact with them, for example with Splatoon 2 we can use the service SplatNet 2 to start private matches with Voice Chat, contact them via social networks or access extra information of some titles. Returning to the example of Splatoon 2, we know that we can also access the commercial gallery of Cromopolis for example buy new items from the Jairo armory or consult our equipment.
