Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack trailer has over 45,000 dislikes

The internet is seemingly unhappy with the new Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription, as the overview trailer has received over 45,000 dislikes on YouTube at the time of writing. Compared to the only 15,000 likes it has received, it is unusual for a Nintendo announcement. This is probably due to the high price point for the Expansion Pack, as the new subscription plan comes in at an extra $30 USD annually. Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack includes everything from the standard subscription, plus access to Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games and the new DLC for Animal Crossing: New HorizonsHappy Home Paradise.

Social media has been interesting over the past few days, with some fans expressing frustration with the pricing. A lot of Switch owners feel like the content offered in the new subscription isn’t worth the money, while others are just excited to access its new content. In the U.K., Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack is priced a little more reasonably, with a yearly subscription costing £34.99 instead of the usual £17.99. Hopefully, Nintendo will start to add more content to this service, in addition to improving the overall online experience.

Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack will be available starting October 25, 2021 and will cost $49.99 / £34.99 for a single user or $79.99 / £59.99 for a family plan. What are your thoughts on the new subscription?
