Earlier in April, Nintendo reported that they had 9.8 million users for Nintendo Switch Online. That number has grown again, with the service now surpassing 10 million users. This was announced at Nintendo’s annual general meeting of shareholders.
Nintendo Switch Online costs $3.99 for a month, $7.99 for 3 months, and $19.99 for one year. Nintendo Switch Online allows users to play games online, as without the service you will not be able to do so. This goes for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and more. The service also gives subscribers the NES – Nintendo Switch Online app. This app allows the user to play select NES games online or local with co-op. As of now, this is the only way to play some of Nintendo’s older classics, as Virtual Console is not on the Nintendo Switch. The service also offers subscribers the ability to back their game saves up in the cloud. This can be extremely useful is something ever happened to your Nintendo Switch. Finally, every once and a while the service will give subscribers a “Special Offer”. We have had two so far, the first being the NES Controllers, and the second being the Nintendo Switch Online Game Vouchers.
