Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser has also spoken out about the controversy surrounding the subscription service.
Controversy surrounds Nintendo Switch Online’s subscription service after the Kyoto-based company announced at the Nintendo Direct on 24 September, an expansion pack for the subscription service, which will include N64 games, Sega Mega Drive games and later the new Animal Crossing expansion.
The company’s move wasn’t exactly popular: it became the most downvoted announcement on Nintendo’s official YouTube channel, ahead of the controversial Metroid Prime Federation Force unveiling. The president of the company’s US subsidiary, Doug Bowser, is no stranger to the problem, and in an interview with The Verge, he spoke about the poor reception from fans.
Unfortunately, the complaints about the expansion pack were only exacerbated when users reported several emulation issues during the port of the N64 games to Switch Online, such as poor controller fit, a complete lack of button customisation, graphical glitches and synchronisation issues.
“We take the feedback very seriously, and we’re continuing to look at ways to improve the overall performance.”
– Doug Bowser responded to criticisms about the poor emulation of N64 games. In recent statements, the chairman has maintained that he continues to see the launch of retro games as necessary to add value to the service.
