A recent report from Nintendo has revealed that their Switch Online service has reached the 8 million subscriber mark. This report goes into account for the Q3 for 2018 to 2019. This report also includes all accounts with family accounts and not counting the free trials obtained.
“Nintendo Switch Online has had a good start, with the number of subscribers surpassing 8 million accounts not including free trials,” Nintendo wrote. “In keeping with our goal of providing Nintendo Switch owners with ‘More Games. More Features. More Fun,’ we are working on continuing to expand the service offerings.”
Let’s hope that Nintendo decides to improve the service for people. There has been talk of them hiring more people to work on the service. As well as rumors of SNES games coming to the service. Its been announced that the NES and SNES Classics will be discontinued after they sell out in retailers.
Honestly, this service is no Virtual Console which saw its end recently after 13 years of dominance. This current platform is bare bones at best. Personally, the only I paid for the $20 a year so I can play Splatoon 2 online.
Past that and the NES games, some of which only let you play a section of the game isn’t inspiring me to renew at this time. Comment below on what you think of the Nintendo Switch Online service.
