Nintendo’s decision to aggressively price the Switch Online Expansion, which allows gamers to play old-school Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis games on their Switch, has sparked uproar among players.

Although the news that classic Nintendo games; such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Mario Kart 64 will suddenly be available to Switch owners; was greeted with enthusiasm, the pricing was not. Players were naturally outraged when the pricing of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion was revealed $49.99 per year for the service.

They vented their rage on the announcement video, which was flooded with negative feedback. Although Nintendo has had unfavourable reactions to game trailers in the past; the venom and outrage directed against the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion have been startling in terms of its scope.

The Nintendo Switch Online Expansion teaser has topped the E3 promo for Metroid Prime: Federation Force from 2015 as Nintendo’s most loathed video ever, according to VCG. As of the publication date, the trailer had over 100,000 dislikes compared to barely 17,000 likes. The previous record-holder, the Metroid Prime trailer, had only 96,000 dislikes to 11,000 likes.
