Nintendo confirms a date and pricing for Switch Online Expansion Pack

Individual sub comes out to $49.99 a year, and family plan at $79.99

Nintendo has set the date and price for its Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack update. The new addition to the Switch Online offering will go live on Oct. 25, 2021.

For pricing, Nintendo confirmed that a 12-month individual membership for the Expansion Pack will run $49.99, while a family membership sits at $79.99. That’s a step up from $19.99 for the standard individual and $34.99 for standard family membership.

Those who already have an active Switch Online subscription will be able to upgrade to Expansion Pack at a prorated discounted rate, depending on how much time is left on your plan.

As for what you get in the Expansion Pack? It will include all the benefits of a base subscription, as well as the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis libraries for Switch Online. The Animal Crossing: New Horizons DLC announced today, Happy Home Paradise, is available with the Expansion Pack, too. (It can be purchased separately as well.) Nintendo told Eurogamer that you’ll lose access to the archipelago and home requests if your subscription lapses, but some content unlocked while playing Happy Home Paradise—like counters, partition walls, and ambient lighting—will still be available.

The previously confirmed list of games will be on the N64 and Genesis libraries, and Nintendo says there will be more to come in the future.

The Expansion Pack for Nintendo Switch Online goes live on Oct. 25, 2021.

This story has been updated with additional details about Happy Home Paradise content access.
