    Nintendo has announced more details today about Nintendo Switch Online, the paid online service for the Nintendo Switch platform. The service will launch in September, and once released online play will no longer be free, since it is one of the exclusive features of the paid membership. All the features can be seen on the image below:
     

     
    Subscription can be purchased with four different pricing plans, with the cheapest one costing $19.99 per year. Since a family membership is available, that probably means that close friends can purchase a plan together and divide the costs between them:
     

     
    For more details about the service check out the Nintendo Switch Online website.

    The follow-up to the extremely successful online tournament, Victory Road, has been announced. Many talented players from around the globe, including Shadowcat, Fabilous, Twixxie, Cat Fight, Thulius, and many more, competed in the event in support of the #PokkenEVO movement. The online tournament drew in a lot of money for the donation drive, brought the global community closer together, and most importantly was a ton of fun for everyone involved!
     
    In support of the efforts to get Doghouse Esports to DreamHack Austin 2018, Burnside has announced the second event in the Victory Road tournament series. The event will be free to enter, but donating will support Doghouse Esports and get your name entered in a raffle for a HORI Pokkén Tournament pad, signed by the top 8 finishers at DreamHack Austin! The suggested entry donation is $10, but players are free to donate less or more at their discretion.

    Last year, Hitbox Arena's Final Boss tournament marked the first ever North American major for Pokkén Tournament DX. The event was a massive success and showcased some of the best Pokkén gameplay of 2017. Now, the team has announced the next installment in the tournament series!
     
     
    Final Boss 2 will be taking place September 29 and 30, placing it in the same month as the anniversary of Pokkén's release on the Nintendo Switch. Unlike the first Final Boss, this event will feature another title alongside Pokkén - DRAGON BALL FighterZ. The event already has some fantastic Pokkén players confirmed to be in attendance, including Flegar, Burnside, and more. The event has a guaranteed starting prize pot of $1000 for each game.

    Earlier this year the organizers behind the Evolution Championship Series (the biggest fighting game tournament in the world) announced that unfortunately Pokkén Tournament DX wouldn't be featured as a main game for the event in 2018.
     
    However, they also announced that due to the gigantic amount of fighting games available nowadays EVO this year is going to have a side tournament stage, where tournaments organized by the community will have an opportunity to shine and be feature on stream and on a big stage. And today, community leader StDxALLISTER came to Twitter to announce that Pokkén Tournament DX will have a side tournament ran by the community that will be featured on the side stage!
     
     
    More details about the event will be posted as soon as they are revealed. Keep in mind, however, that even though Pokkén is not a main game you still need to pay for the Venue Fee and register to the BYOC Tournaments through EVO's Smash.gg page.
