If the pricing is really only less than 5 dollars/one year, if you take the family thing with 7 other persons with Switch, then its practically nothing. Or even with two others its less than 12 dollars/year, so its really cheap if it really works that way.

With Nintendo having a poor track record of online services and the fact it's only $30 AUD a year my expectations are low.....

I've never been hyped for paid online before... But I'm so hopeful that the update to the switch will open the doors to great things with the online nes games to start. Fingers crossed it all goes to plan and isn't fumbled badly by them.
