When it came to Nintendo Switch Online, it was a hard decision for many fans initially with the introduction for that Expansion Pack tier. In one aspect, the subscription grows using the beloved Nintendo 64 alongside the Sega Genesis which is still surprising to say out loud. But, the other hand does nod that it is ridiculous for a $30 price bump for any fairly lacking service when propped next to its competitors.
Despite that, Nintendo has truly increased the need for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack with new additions as time progressed. Originally, it began with Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise. It had been later brought to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Pass earlier this winter as well.
Not over the weekend, Nintendo announced that Splatoon 3 is primed for release next September. The organization added that Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion may also be added to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. “Members can connect to the Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion DLC at no additional cost. Using the Splatoon 3 game coming, this single-player DLC is a fantastic way to go into some practice prior to taking on the Splatlands!” the firm writes.
“In this single-player campaign DLC for that Splatoon 2 game, you play as Agent 8-an amnesiac Octoling-who's trying to escape a mysterious underground facility with the help Pearl,” the overview for that expansion shares. “Marina, and Cap'n Cuttlefish. Will Agent 8 get to the the surface of Inkopolis? What odd-yet-charming characters can they meet? How come this paragraph have a lot of question marks??”
Noted, players interested in Octo Expansion must also own the base game for Splatoon 2. “If you're already a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack member and own the entire form of Splatoon 2, you are able to download the DLC now and begin playing.” This is applicable towards the previous DLC expansions too on the service tier.
And likely like Happy Home Paradise, using Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack doesn't directly suggest you have the DLC. Previously, Nintendo Support did clarify when you neglect to pay for your subscription before it expires, you'll lose accessibility expansions offered. You can read the entire report by heading here.
