Nintendo insider Emily Rogers has commented on today’s pricing announcement for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass. The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, which was fully unveiled today, costs $49.99 / £35.99 per year for individuals and $79.99 / £59.99 for the family plan and includes HD NES, HD SNES, HD Nintendo 64 and HD SEGA Mega Drive games along with the new downloadable content pack for Animal Crossing: New Horizons titled Happy Home Paradise. Emily said on Twitter that she had heard that licensing costs could be behind the higher than expected price of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass. She had heard that SEGA had benefitted quite nicely from the deal with Nintendo and presumably other third party game developers such as Konami and Capcom. The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack launches on 25th /26th October and Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise launches 5th November.
