The trailer for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack has surpassed 2015’s Metroid Prime: Federation Force E3 trailer to become Nintendo’s most disliked YouTube video ever. At the time of writing, the video has 1,107,261 views, 17,000 likes, and 109,000 dislikes, compared to the Metroid Prime: Federation Force trailer’s 11,000 likes and 96,000 dislikes. Comparatively, the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack trailer pulled this off with about half a million fewer views and reached the mark in a mere sixteen days. For a refresher, you can check out the video below and, if you want, cast your vote in the likes or dislikes.
The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack adds Nintendo 64 and Genesis games to the service and provides access to the Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise paid DLC. Compared to the standard membership, which costs $20 a year for a single user and $35 for a family pass for up to eight members, the expansion costs $50 for a single user and $80 for a family pass. The Expansion Pack has drawn extensive criticism for shoddy emulation, poor value, and a confusing lack of certain features; for example, you cannot map Nintendo 64 controls, and you cannot use the rewind gameplay feature for Nintendo 64 games. Players have noticed audio issues, graphical glitches (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time struggles with fog), and no substitute for the Controller Pak, a controller-based memory card that the Nintendo 64 used for certain games.
