During Nintendo's latest financial results briefing, President of Nintendo Shuntaro Furukawa revealed more than 9.8 million players have signed up to the Switch Online service. This figure excludes free trial memberships and includes family memberships.
In addition to this, he briefly touched on the battle royale game Tetris 99. As you might already know, it's been out since February and can be played by anyone who signs up to the NSO. Since it was launched, it has been played by 2.8 million accounts and has boosted user engagement with the Nintendo Switch. The plan is to implement more in-game events in the future to encourage consumers to keep enjoying the game.
The president also noted how NSO users are still enjoying the NES Library, which provides instant access to a variety of classic games. The aim is to make these services "more attractive" over the long-term.
