This ugly corporation that is often called “journalists” knows it all too well: to stay on top of the news, you sometimes have to leaf through. Nintendo seems to have understood this well, as evidenced by the clever sequencing of the new Nintendo Switch Online formula.
The Japanese manufacturer has indeed taken advantage of a Nintendo Direct entirely devoted to Animal Crossing New Horizons to let go, and unveiled in more detail the price of the more bi-fluorinated formula of Nintendo Switch Online + additional Pack. This new subscription unveiled last month will add as a reminder to titles from the NES and Super NES a sample of the catalogs of the Mega Drive and Nintendo 64.
The red pill
But the little craftsman had taken the trouble to postpone the announcement of the painful until later. It is now done. The Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack subscription will therefore be billed at 39.99 euros for one year of subscription, i.e. double the initial formula:
The family formula will also make a comeback, and goes for the occasion from 34.99 euros to 69.99 euros. Remember that this subscription alone allows watering up to eight different accounts, if if the mif.
It’s Julo who will be happy
If the players will undoubtedly not fail to raise their eyebrows at the discovery of this doubled price (but for the hour optional), Nintendo seems keen to diversify its offer, since the Animal Crossing: New Horizons DLC called Happy Home Paradise will also be included in the offer. Could Nintendo Switch Online have other similar offers in the future? Kyoto analysts will not fail to scrutinize the fallout from this announcement to adjust their strategy.
And for those who are eager to switch to the new formula, the official site from the manufacturer already specifies that a pro-rata “reform” will be applied, not without leaving a mystery on the calculation to come. On the other hand, the price of the Mega Drive controllers and the Nintendo 64 is now known: it will cost you 49.99 euros per unit. The price of nostalgia? For the more materialistic, pre-orders are open same here.
The Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack subscription will be available from October 26, and we are already waiting for your comments on these new announcements!
