Mentioned in its latest financial report that was released this week, Nintendo stated that it has plans to continue to grow the Nintendo Switch Online service. Although specific details related to what these new expansions might look like weren’t given, the company said that it wants to further grow Switch Online as a way of continuing to make players engage with the Switch platform as a whole. “By enhancing services, we have increased the opportunities for members to continue playing Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo has hinted that substantial changes are coming to Nintendo Switch Online in the near future. While Nintendo’s online subscription service has already seen a significant update in the last month with the addition of titles from the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis collections, the company has stated that this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the platform’s future.
These enhancements include Game Trial events, which allow users to play a specific title during a specific time period, and the addition of member-exclusive games,” Nintendo explained in its report. “Going forward, we will continue to improve and expand both Nintendo Switch Online and Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, striving to provide services that satisfy customers.”
When it comes to what Nintendo could bring to Switch Online in the future, one recent rumor has suggested that Game Boy titles could soon be playable on the platform. Within the past month, new reports and rumors have started to circle suggesting that popular games from Game Boy and Game Boy Color will come to Nintendo Switch Online at some point. While Nintendo obviously hasn’t confirmed this to be true just yet, this move does seem to be a logical one and may become official at some point within the coming year.
