First Switch Video App Coming To Japan

The Nintendo Switch launched in March without any video streaming services. No YouTube. No Netflix. No anything. Now, the console is getting its first one–but only in Japan.

The NicoNico platform, which resembles YouTube in some ways, will come to the Japanese Nintendo Switch eShop later this week in Japan. However, as Eurogamer explains, people in other regions can download it if they have a Japanese Switch account.

In March, Nintendo executive Reggie Fils-Aime said the company is in discussions with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon to bring their streaming services to Switch…eventually. Those services are not available yet because Nintendo wanted the launch to be all about games.

Additionally, the Switch does not have a web browser, though, like the streaming apps, this feature might be added over time.

As of March 31, Nintendo has sold 2.76 million Switch consoles. The hybrid console is the fastest-selling system in Nintendo’s history in some regions.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
