The Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack Includes Animal Crossing DLC
Here's how much the service will cost.
Nintendo revealed the pricing information and release date for its Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership. It also revealed an additional benefit that will be available to subscribers.
This membership plan was originally revealed in September 2021. The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack plan will include all of the benefits of the standard Nintendo Switch Online membership, but it will also include the ability to play a catalog of Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis video games (check out the games that will be available at launch right here).
In addition to these benefits, Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscribers will receive access to the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Happy Home Paradise downloadable content (DLC) at no additional cost.
Subscribers will be able to access this DLC as long as they have an active Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription. If they ever cancel their subscription, they won’t be able to access the DLC unless they resubscribe or purchase the DLC outright for $24.99. (You can learn more about the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Happy Home Paradise DLC in our previous coverage.)
The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership will be priced at $49.99 per year for a single person and $79.99 for a family membership.
The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership will be available starting October 25, 2021.
