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.

Guess i have to waste money on my next subscription with N64 and Mega Drive games (snes and nes are for normal subscriptions) and a Animal Crossing DLC that wastes even more my money because i don't have the game itself for the DLC

I made a deal in my mind whether I'd buy the expansion pack. I sent in my Mario 3D world switch right joycon for repair, since it wouldn't charge. Nintendo couldn't find anything wrong with it, but they sent me the wrong joycon, the dark red odyssey joycon. I called them yesterday and complained. They've started an investigation to find my joycon. It will take 10-14 business days. However, I don't have much hope. If I don't get it back or the right replacement, I won't be buying the expansion pack and I'll probably become a Sony fan. This is after I've already bought 171 games on the Switch. I won't buy another one then. :(

Nintendo must've heard me, because they just asked me to call them again. thought it was going to be 14 days, but they said they'd send me the right color, so I gave them my shipping address and email. :D I have to renew my subscription to nso on the 29th or 30th of this month. if I get it by then and it's correct, I'll subscribe to the expansion pack.

I was curious about the nintendo switch's handling of the n64 games, but um....
i have a family plan already, would upgrading remove the family plan status because that'd be really shitty.

I just checked my switch and the family pack is $100 for those of us that live in Canada. Definitely not getting it. It's way to much for what they offer, hell I find ps+ to much and it offers more

Nintendo Online Expansion sucks

Graphical glitches, slowdows that wasn't present on original hardware, tinny audio sound. Crappy laggy stuttery online play.

For $30 bucks I would expect top tier quality emulation not this crappy version we got
