How to take advantage of it?
Hang in there, because as is often the case with Nintendo and online features, nothing is simple. We recommend that you read the next three paragraphs to make the right decision.
To play games on Nintendo’s retro console, you must be a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber. Individually, it costs 20 euros for a year. But if you have friends or family who would like to subscribe too, you can sign up for a family subscription and invite them to join you in sharing the bill (up to 8 people). For one year, it costs 35 euros.
However, with the Online subscription, you will only be able to play the GameBoy, NES and Super NES as retro consoles. For the N64, the Mega Drive and now the Game Boy Advance, you must subscribe to an additional pack in addition to the online subscription, either a family or individual subscription. This package also gives access to additional races in mario kart 8 deluxe and the DLCs ofanimal crossing et splatoon 2.
There, the addition goes up immediately since it is impossible not to subscribe for a year to this additional package. For an individual subscription with an additional package, you spend from 20 to 40 euros. For a family subscription, the pack raises the price from 35 to 70 euros. The price of nostalgia without a doubt.
