Nintendo Switch Online To Get New Features To Attract Gamers

Nintendo: 'The 3DS market has contracted faster than we anticipated'

Nintendo's online subscription service called Nintendo Switch Online offers several incentives for subscribers including online play and a catalogue of retro games, but Nintendo is now planning on adding to its appeal even more.

If you head to the Nintendo eShop on your Switch console, you'll find discounts on a number of co-op and competitive titles like Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Diablo III, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, Pocket Rumble, Super Meat Boy, Windjammers, or Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 - with some titles like Crypt of the NecroDancer seeing as much as 80% off their initial retail prices. In North America, Nintendo Switch Online service starts from $4.99 per month.

Nintendo Switch Online was put in place late previous year, a service which is now required to play most online-capable games on the Switch.

Nintendo plans new features to make Switch Online more appealing

"While the Nintendo 3DS market has contracted faster than we anticipated, now many of consumers who newly purchase Nintendo 3DS are consumers purchasing it as their first game system". I know some people say we just need to hire more developers.

"We are preparing various new offerings for consumers who subscribe to the service", added Shinya Takahashi, Nintendo's director and senior managing executive officer.

"Demand still remains from parents looking to purchase a first game system for their children. That is why our basic policy is to proceed with both Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS in our dedicated video game platform business", also said Shuntaro Furukawa. Major games like Pokemon Let's Go were announced in May 2018 and released in November 2018, and Super Mario Odyssey was officially announced during the January 2017 Switch event (though footage of it was first teased in the Switch reveal event in October 2016) and released in October 2017.
