Nintendo has revealed a new option for Switch Online subscribers which will allow individual members to score discounts on a family plan.

Coming into effect from 1st October, anyone who has an Individual Membership to the service will be able to trade-in the remaining days left on their deal towards a discount for a Family Membership. If you signed up individually at some point over the last 12 months but would love to add your friends or family to your package, this could be a great way to do it.

More details are expected to be shared soon, but here's the official wording straight from Nintendo of Europe:

Starting 01/10, you’ll be able to use the remaining days of your Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership as a discount when purchasing a Family Membership! More details, such as discount rates, will be available on our website at a later date.

We're just coming up to the anniversary of Switch Online next week - it first started on 18th/19th September last year - so this likely won't be relevant for those who grabbed a subscription on day one. Hopefully it'll come in handy for those who signed up a little later, however.

What do you think? Does this sound like a good idea? Would you use this option if the discount seems worth it? Share your thoughts with us below.
