Nintendo Switch online app

Nintendo has announced ‘Smash World,’ a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate-centric service that will launch in the Switch Online mobile app.

Rather than focus on specific player statistics, Smash World will instead emphasize the Smash Bros. community’s gameplay videos.

This is all that Nintendo has revealed about Smash World so far, but the company says it will regularly update the app with new features over time.

To coincide with the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo will also update the Switch Online app to include voice chat for players in private rooms. The Switch Online app, which is available on Android and iOS, is required to use voice chat on the Nintendo Switch.

To use this feature, players will need to subscribe to the Nintendo Switch Online service, which launched in September and costs $24.99 CAD for a 12-month membership.
