After a month or so since it has been announced, it is finally here. Nintendo has just released the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. Remember that it costs $49.99 to purchase a year of it, an increase from the $19.99 you currently pay for a year of the regular Nintendo Switch Online package.
If you do get Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, you will gain acess to 2 new retro gaming libraries. The Expansion Pack will contain libaries for the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive and the Nintendo 64. As of tonight’s launch of the Expansion Pass, you’re able to play 9 Nintendo 64 games and 14 SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive games.
One of the things that Nintendo also did for the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack launch is the release of a brand new update to the Nintendo Switch‘s firmware. The only thing the patch notes mention are the usual “system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience”, as well as the addition of support for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.
