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.

I have a modded Switch, but has anybody even figured out how to do this for the NES and SNES Online games?
I have access to the NES and SNES games on my modded switch.. I just installed the nes and snes app from tinfoil and all the games just work.

Nintendo can go fuck themselves! I'm not paying 80 just for their rental content. I have a Genesis Mini with a but load of games plus RetroArch for online play. I also have a physical N64 collection and if I get hungry to play any N64 game online, I'll just install RetroArch on my Steam Deck and play for FREE.

For me, it's a pass. I could never like Genesis games (specially the sound) and N64 was a console I ignored completely and no games give me the will to play (neither 3d Mario or zeldas).

I don't play Animal Crossing, so the dlc is nothing to me.

Easy decision.

This seems like a good time to mention for those who care, that CaVE Database Manager is officially back, and plans to try and support N64/Genesis "injections" for the new apps...

I suspect there will be an abnormal increase in interest for the project with these new consoles. Nintendo is... really pushing people away on this one...

Nintendo's online services have always been a joke given the infrastructure and lackluster experience in certain multiplayer games. They still don't add meaningful features with Switch updates and they still lack proper headset/chat support in the year 2021. I could understand paying 20/yr, but 50/yr for what is ultimately a lackluster online experience it too much when compared to the quality of what Microsoft offers. Get your head in the game for once, Nintendo!

Everyone who’s surprised by this, it’s Nintendo. We’re lucky they aren’t charging $59.99 for each game lol. I’ll give them $50 for the controller when more are in stock but then I’m canceling my NSO membership completely and using a modded nsp with all the games for free.

There are modded nsp’s out there, it’s against the rules to tell u where to find them but they’re pretty easy to find with Google. Edit: sorry DarkAkuma, I didn’t know about CaVE until today, thanks for your work that made Phoenix18’s precompiled versions possible!
