21GroganFri 20th Oct 2017 @ReeLongbow I have no idea how the chat system will work when the paid online system goes live. There has to be an OS based chat and messaging system in place like xbox live ( which works very well ). Playing online multiplayer games requires teamwork and communication, in some games like Overwatch it's essential or the game is pretty pointless as your team has little to no chance to win against a team working together. If Nintendo decide not to implement this then I can't see a future for online team based multiplayer games on Switch, well not any that would be competitive or enjoyable unless they all have free for all modes. I have people on my friends list that have added me or I've added and I've never and can't speak to them or send them a message on my console, that's madness. 1977 Binatone pong first console , true story.
