Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack now available

Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack is now available, allowing subscribers to play a selection of Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games through streaming. Not only will you unlock access to these classic titles, but you will also receive access to the Happy Home Paradise expansion for Animal Crossing: New Horizons when it launches on November 5, 2021. If you’re already subscribed to the normal version of Nintendo Switch Online, you will be able to upgrade to the new version, with some form of discount being available depending on the remaining days of your current plan.

In the United States, many Nintendo fans are concerned about the “value” of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. The YouTube overview trailer that was uploaded shortly after the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct quickly received over 45,000 dislikes, making it clear that some people are upset about its pricing. However, if you’re interested in revisiting some classic titles and are interested in Happy Home Paradise, then the new plan is probably worth your money.

Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack is available now, with a 12-month subscription costing $49.99 / £34.99, while a family subscription will cost you $79.99 / £59.99. Will you be subscribing, and if so, what Nintendo 64 (or Sega Genesis) game are you going to play first?
