Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions grew due to Nintendo 64 games, ‘further enhancements’ planned

    Over 36 million subscribers worldwide.

    During Nintendo’s second quarter investor Q&A, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa explained that total Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions grew due in part to the addition of Nintendo 64 games.

    Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions continue to grow, and the service has over 36 million subscribers thus far. Additionally, “further improvements” to the service are currently being planned at Nintendo.

    Here’s what president Furukawa had to say during the investor Q&A:

    As of September 2022, the number of paid Nintendo Switch Online members has surpassed
    36 million. While there are some users who choose not to renew their memberships once they expire, the number of members is increasing overall, along with increases in people playing Nintendo Switch and titles that support online play. In addition, the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service, which we started last year, is accounting for a gradually increasing proportion of overall memberships thanks in part to the addition of Nintendo 64 titles.

    The goal of Nintendo Switch Online as a service is to help users to enjoy playing on Nintendo Switch for a long time, so we are considering various initiatives, including further
    enhancements to the content of the service. As we discussed in today’s presentation, our goal is to continue to use Nintendo Account to maintain long, positive relationships with our
    consumers. In line with this strategy, we consider Nintendo Switch Online as our initiative to encourage our users to continue to enjoy Nintendo Switch for many years to come.
