Nintendo released its second quarter financial results presentation for fiscal year ending March 2023, revealing Nintendo Switch Online surpassed 36 million subscribers.
The updated total of Nintendo Switch Online subscribers includes paid individual and family plans. According to Nintendo, Nintendo Switch Online memberships have grown alongside the amount of users playing Nintendo Switch titles. As of September 30, 2022, more than 114 million users around the world own a Nintendo Switch system.
Here’s what Nintendo had to say about Nintendo Switch Online:
Nintendo Switch Online, a service that makes Nintendo Switch more fun and convenient, has exceeded 36 million paid memberships as of September 30, 2022. Memberships have grown alongside an increase in users playing Nintendo Switch and the release of titles that support online play. This service offers more than just the ability to play compatible
games online. It also provides access to an expanding list of other benefits, such as the growing collection of classic titles. By expanding the range of available play options like this, we believe we can create opportunities for users to continue playing Nintendo Switch for a long time.
We continue to add Nintendo 64 titles for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members, as well as access to select paid add-on content at no additional cost.
Note: The number of paid memberships is the total number of users subscribing to either Nintendo Switch Online or Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, including those who belong to the service through a family membership (and therefore do not pay individual fees).
