Today, the pricing plans for the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack was revealed during the Animal Crossing Direct and via a tweet from Nintendo.

The Expansion Pack to the online service will cost $49.99 per year for an individual membership. A family plan of up to 8 people will cost $79.99 per year.

This is an expansion to the base Nintendo Switch Online membership that currently costs $19.99 per year. In the upgraded online expansion, you’ll receive additional perks to enjoy that aren’t available in the base model.

Specifically, you’ll have access to the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis library of games that will be added to the service over time. It was also revealed today that members of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack will have access to the Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise paid DLC for the game (which would cost $24.99 on its own) at no additional cost.

Of course, you’ll have all of the benefits of the base Nintendo Switch Online membership with the Expansion Pack upgrade as well, including the ability to play games online, cloud saves, NES/SNES games, and more.

The Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass will launch later this month on Oct. 25.
