In Nintendo’s second quarter financials report, the company announced that Switch Online surpassed 32 million subscribers worldwide as of September 2021. The service grew from 26 million subscribers as of September 2020 with a 6 million subscriber gain. Nintendo CEO Shuntaro Furukawa states that the company plans to “improve and expand” their two subscriptions. These two subscriptions would be the base Nintendo Switch Online service ($20 per year) and Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack ($50 per year). We hope Nintendo actually follows through with some worthwhile additions to the service beyond the N64 and Genesis games.
