At the end of September, Nintendo announced that they would be adding a Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games library to their Switch Online membership. They did not, however, include a price with this announcement. Well, that’s finally been sorted, as Nintendo today announced that their expanded Nintendo Switch Online membership would cost users an extra $30 per year on top of the original price.
This brings the Individual Memberships total cost to $49.99 USD and the Family Membership to $79.99 USD.
Fans were pretty quick to point out that this seems like an extreme price rise for games which had been treated as abandonware. But the membership will still likely receive a huge uptake, as it includes some classic titles.
In addition to the 64 and Sega Games, members will also receive Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Happy Home Paradise DLC. The DLC would normally set you back $24.99 USD.
Nintendo Switch Online users will also be able to purchase replicas of the original console controllers.
