Nintendo Switch Online expansion pack adds Pokémon Snap
Nintendo Switch Online works a bit like PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold: For a fixed monthly price, you get access to the online functions of the platform and can then also compete against other players online. In addition, there is a selection of bonus titles for which you do not have to pay extra again – apart from the subscription price.
The Expansion Pass Nintendo Switch Online is then roughly the equivalent of Sony’s new higher PS Plus tiers: you get access to more games and some DLCs, such as the track pass for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or the Animal Crossing expansion. You also get the opportunity to play N64 games. Another title will soon be added to them with Pokémon Snap.
