Nintendo Switch Online has reached nearly 10 million users, according to a financial statement from the company on Friday, April 26.
That is a fairly substantial amount, considering the service launched less than a year ago and compared to the 35 million system sales number, almost one in three switch owners subscribe to the service.
As you expect in the first year of an emerging service, Nintendo Switch Online is still lagging behind the other two console subscription services – Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus – with 50 million and 26 million users respectively. It was crucial that both services had years to reach their current situation.
Although Nintendo Switch Online may not have the same number of users as Microsoft and Sony, the service provided by Nintendo has a serious price advantage: Nintendo Switch Online only costs $ 20 (£ 18, AU $ 30) per year compared to $ 60 (£ 50) , AU $ 80) price tags from PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold.
In the same report, Nintendo also gave shareholders a brief look at what would happen to the system in the future, citing Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: the April release of VR Kit, the release date of Super Mario Maker 2 and Fire Emblem: Three houses & apos; The July release date is the next major launch of the company.
And last but not least, Nintendo told shareholders to expect Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, Animal Crossing and The Legend of Zelda: Link ' s Awakening to arrive sometime later this year – all titles enthusiastically expected by fans .
