Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack pricing information revealed

n so.png

After the existence of a new tier for Nintendo Switch Online was revealed during the previous Nintendo Direct, new information regarding the service was announced today. Nintendo Switch Online's Expansion Pack, which includes Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis games, along with the newly-announced paid DLC for Animal Crossing New Horizons, will be included in the plan, which will cost players $49.99 for a year's worth of membership--almost on par with the cost of Xbox Game Pass or PlayStation Plus per year. That's also more than double the price compared to the original cost of NSO's base tier plan, which is currently $19.99. If you want a yearly family membership of the Expansion Pack, you can expect to pay $79.99. Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack launches October 25th.

50$ screw you Nintendo

What if we don't care about having Animal Crossing DLC? we still got to pay extra. Plus you're renting the DLC so when the server get shut down eventually you just lost everything.

Nintendo is becoming more and more anti consumer, they're always 1 step forward 2 steps back.

Holy shit, that's a steep jump for the same shitty servers! I guess AC DLC being included is a good thing, but is that how they're justifying this?

I could get all the latest first party games and even major third party ones, ON LAUNCH DATE, with Game Pass, for $10 more a year...

or I could get some dusty old N64 games that I've been emulating for years on literally every console I've ever had prior to this.

Hmmmmm tough call.

Nintendo has discovered the magic of bundling!

I'm interested much more on the N64 controller than in that softwares. If this controller come with a better analogue stick and people make it work on PC, it will be a must buy for me
All my N64 controllers have a limp stick, so an improved one would be great but.... the N64 controller is still the worst-designed controller NIntendo ever made. Maybe for collectors or purists, but for actually playing N64 games I'd much prefer an xbox-style gamepad, or even just the joycons.

I personally recommand the "EVERDRIVE-64 X7" for those who really want to play N64 games without any limitations and you don't have to wait till your favourite game is in the list. At least they didn't change the basic NSO price.
