The Nintendo Switch Online service might have only been launched late last year, but it's already got more than 10 million subscribers. Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa confirmed this at the company's recent Shareholder Q&A.
The number of subscribers for Nintendo Switch Online has increased steadily since the service was launched last September, and it has now surpassed 10 million accounts.
It's been well-known the service was close to 10 million users since April.
When asked about how Nintendo would “continue to make the content of the service more appealing going forward” he referenced existing offerings such as the online NES library and Tetris 99. He also mentioned how current subscribers gained access to additional services. For example, Save Data Cloud Backup and game vouchers.
Nintendo Switch Online provides users the ability to play Nintendo Switch games over the internet, both competitively and cooperatively. It also provides services such as Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online, Save Data Cloud Backup, and smartphone application services such as online lobbies and voice chat. In addition, we provided TETRIS 99 as a special offer to Nintendo Switch Online members this February, and then in May, began selling Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers that allow users to purchase two Nintendo Switch download titles at a discount.
