Not bad?

Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack pricing has been set at $60 AUD per year for a single subscription, Nintendo Australia has today confirmed.

This means the overall price of Nintendo Switch Online jumps from $29.95 AUD per year to $59.95 AUD with the added Expansion Pack. Family subscription pricing jumps from $54.95 AUD to $109.95 AUD.

In New Zealand, pricing rises from $32.95 NZD per year to $60.45 NZD, or from $60.45 NZD to $119.95 NZD for a Family membership.

The expansion to the regular Nintendo online service not only includes a host of Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis (Mega Drive, sorry Aussies) titles but the Animal Crossing New Horizons Happy Home Paradise expansion pack.
