What can you expect from Nintendo in the update?

Switch online has already raised the bars with the addition of the Switch expansion pack. With new and consistent content on the way, fans are happy with the company. 

The update will hit markets on 20th May with a return of the N64 game, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. So, if you’re enjoying Kirby and the Forgotten Land, you might want to check this out. Kirby 64 is a classic, so don’t expect it to have the same features as Forgotten Land.

Apart from introducing the Switch expansion pack, we only have information about one game, Pokemon Snap. The game came out on 30th April, allowing fans to try their hand at another classic. Rest, the company is focusing on adding more and more titles to its expansion pack as it can prove to be the next big thing. 

During a conference call, they said, ‘the number of Nintendo switch online expansion pack members is steadily increasing, and its share among the overall Nintendo switch online subscriber base is gradually expanding. By region, the ratio is especially high in the United States.’ This steady increase in users became possible because of the exclusive Mario Kart 8 and Animal Crossing DLC. 

Nintendo’s future.

So, all we can do is be patient with the company and wait for them to release new things.
