Game News Nintendo Switch: the trail of Game Boy / Color and Advance games relaunched by the president of Nintendo?
For two days, the time has been on the side of the iconic Japanese manufacturer. As part of a commentary in the presence of investors in the Japanese company, Shuntaro Furukawa, its president, spoke on many points, including its service allowing owners of the hybrid console to play online. From his words, we retain several things: the nice growth of Nintendo Switch Online, its premium version “Additional Pack” and the future objectives vis-à-vis this service, reviving certain rumors about its future.

A Nintendo Switch Online that progresses and a convincing Additional Pack
It’s no surprise to anyone, not even Nintendo, but the figures are very good and encouragingeven though shortage of components still poses thorny problems for the brand. Even if society can be worried, on the software side, it’s the jackpot : its spearheads which are Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Animal Crossing: New Horizons as well as the last parts of the Pokémon license break the ceiling.
For the productions of the mustachioed plumber firm, the sky seems to be the only limit. Even though the Nintendo Switch is not eternalthere are still many areas to improve, in particular the Nintendo Switch Online service and its Additional Pack (which gives access to the DLCs Mario Kart 8 Deluxeto that ofAnimal Crossing: New HorizonsN64 and MegaDrive games, …). According to Shuntaro Furukawa, the number of subscribers is progressing well since the last figures announcing 32 million subscribers, and the Additional Pack is converting more and more players, especially in the United States!
The total number of Nintendo Switch Online subscribers has not been updated from the 32 million subscribers we disclosed last September, but it is gradually increasing as Nintendo Switch sales increase.
The number of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscribers is gradually increasing, as is the number of Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. (…) The subscription rate is particularly high in the United States. Immediately after the service launched, most people switched to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.
Since the end of the year, we’ve released many popular games for the Nintendo 64 as well as new DLCs for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As a result, we are seeing an increase in new subscribers. — Shuntaro Furukawa, President of Nintendo.
After the MegaDrive games, the games of the three Game Boy approaching?
In full success, including in the field of online service, Nintendo has therefore set itself two objectives around Nintendo Switch Online and, by extension, the Additional Pack: to retain players who have subscribed to it and to attract again those whose subscription expired. For this, the president of Big N plans to provide its Online with additional content because it is important, according to him, to add value to this service.
Of course, there are customers who let their subscription expire, and don’t renew it, so we think it’s important to keep releasing software that allows players to continue enjoying, not just online gaming , but also to improve their overall experience
We will continue to expand our services and create new content for our customers throughout this year. — Shuntaro Furukawa, President of Nintendo.
This last sentence draws particular attention. because, recently, rumors from the corridor have come to feed the idea that a new category of gamesnamely those from the Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance catalogue, can join the program as was the case for the N64 and the MegaDrive. Still, the president is relaunching this track somewhat, even if it could indicate accessible content for his future productions (Splatoon 3, Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, …) within the Additional Pack. However, in the logic of things, it is not improbable that the said catalogs will make their debut in the premium service: if the president did not give concrete elements on this subject, the future, him, will confirm it to us.
