The price of the Expansion Pack subscription steeply increased from the regular tier of the Switch Online subscription.

To be precise, the former carries a price tag of $49.99 per year for a single person, whereas the latter is available to the tune of $19.99 for an individual annual membership.

It is worth noting that the Nintendo Switch Online+Expansion Pack still includes the same benefits as the standard tier, such as the cloud saves, NES and SNES gaming titles, and the online multiplayer option.

However, what sets the Expansion Pack apart from the previous tier is its additional jam-packed access to the classic gaming title from the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis.

Not to mention that the bonus “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” sells for $24.99 if bought outside of the upcoming bundle.

The Verge noted in the same report that the price tag of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack enters the same range of subscription payments as its competitors, namely Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold and Sony’s PlayStation Plus which both sells for a higher price tag of $59.99 annually.

That said, although the Expansion Pack is significantly more expensive than its lower tier, it is still cheaper than the offering of its close rivals.
