Switch Online will continue to enhance its value, according to Nintendo's president, and most US use

The United States is a strong supporter of the new subscription industry.

From the start, the price of entry for Nintendo Switch Online has been a litigious feature of the service, but some of them were also concerned. Well, we returned to where we started from with the price increase of the Expansion Pack, and Nintendo president Shuntaro Furkawa had to address the situation once more in a recent investor Q&A session [as translated by VGC].

Furukawa was quizzed on how Switch Online was expanding as a service, and had mostly vague answers. After acknowledging that it was important to continue to increase value, Furukawa declared that the number of subscribers has not decreased significantly in the last six months (32 million is once again provided as the main metric), but it is growing, and the conversation rate for Expansion Pack upgrades can be considered a win for the company.

Furukawa reports that most US subscribers have now converted to the Expansion Pack since it was launched in October of 2021. No data has been revealed, but a gradual increase is mentioned, and the United States is specifically recognized as one of the most powerful adopters of the Expansion Pack. There is a lot of worry about the US''s isolation between the two countries.

Im feeling like were stuck in a time loop with a lot of things on Switch Online. Its reminiscent of the drip feed Virtual Console strategy that likely left a lot of money on the table, dating back to previous generations. So far, Expansion Pack has been mostly mired in a slew of new and old expansion packs.

Will the rumored handheld upgrades coming this year be enough for some people? Perhaps! It depends on how substantial the rollout is.
