Earlier this month, we reported on how Nintendo’s Switch Online overview trailer for the new ‘Expansion Pack’ add-on (see above) was struggling to win over the masses.
Well, an update on that – as highlighted by our friends over at VGC, it’s now become the most disliked trailer ever on Nintendo’s main YouTube channel. How bad is it? Well, the number of dislikes have now surpassed 100,000, with only 17,000 likes. Yikes!
As noted by the source, the previous record-holder was the E3 2015 3DS trailer for Metroid Prime: Federation Force – with 11,000 likes and 96,000 dislikes. Notably, the views on both are quite different, which is worth taking into consideration. Federation Force has over 1.5 million views and the NSO trailer has over one million views.
“It’s worth noting that the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack – Overview Trailer has around 500,000 fewer views, and also managed to achieve this in just 16 days.”
It’s not exactly been a welcoming launch for the Switch Online ‘Expansion Pack’ containing both Sega Mega Drive / Genesis and Nintendo 64 games. This premium paid service has been criticised for not even matching the standards set by community emulation efforts. Many other players also claim to have encountered all sorts of technical issues with the Nintendo 64 library.
