Nintendo's Switch Online service appears to be growing by the day – with the Japanese company revealing it now has more than 15 million paid subscribers.
During Nintendo's latest financial results briefing, president Shuntaro Furukawa touched on both the positives and negatives of the service – mentioning how new members "continue to join", but not everyone is necessarily renewing their membership:
One more point to mention is the more than 15 million accounts worldwide with a paid membership to Nintendo Switch Online, and those sales occupy a certain presence within our digital sales. But while new members continue to join, there are also those who do not renew their memberships.
According to Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad (via Twitter), this is eight million more subscribers than this time last year. It also means "approximately" 29% of Switch owners subscribe to Nintendo's paid online service.
To ensure this growth continues, Furukawa reiterated how the company would continue to enhance the appeal of the service:
We will continue to enhance the appeal of the service to bring more features and more fun to Nintendo Switch.
