Nobody seems to really like Nintendo’s new Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership plan. That’s according to the response that the gaming giant has received for its Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack – Overview Trailer, which managed to rack up over 100,000 dislikes (but only 17,000 likes) since its premiere on October 15. Nintendo’s previous worst performer was the Metroid Prime: Federation Force trailer from E3 2015 (96,000 dislikes vs. 11,000 likes).
From Nintendo on its Expansion Pack membership plan:
In addition to all the benefits of a Nintendo Switch Online membership, you can play a selection of Nintendo 64 games as well as retro SEGA Genesis classics. Plus, you’ll be able to play the Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise DLC for no additional charge.
Nintendo fans seem to be upset about the Expansion Pack membership because it’s only available for individuals and families to purchase as part of an expensive annual agreement. An individual membership costs $49.99 for 12 months, which is a significant increase over the regular membership’s $19.99.
Expansion Pack subscribers have also been sharing screenshots and video over social media that suggest the N64 ports on Switch aren’t all that great. One example is Ocarina of Time; fog, draw distances, and water textures appear to be worse on the Switch versus the original N64 and Wii U virtual console versions.
