Netflix For The Nintendo Switch Reportedly Ready, Awaiting For Approval

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

When the Nintendo Switch was announced, the way the console was designed made it look like a pretty obvious candidate for various entertainment apps since the console could be brought with gamers on the go. However at the time of announcement, Nintendo said that apps like Netflix would come in time, suggesting that gamers could be in for a wait.

However it turns out that maybe gamers might not have to wait much longer because in a report from GoNintendo, one of their readers KamehamehaX has apparently spoken to a Netflix rep who told them that Netflix for the Switch is “locked and loaded” and that all that remains is approval by Nintendo.

It seems that Netflix has been trying to get permission from Nintendo to launch on the Switch for a while now, and that everything is ready and all Nintendo needs is to give it the greenlight and it will be good to go. We have no idea why Nintendo might be holding back their approval, but since neither Netflix nor Nintendo have officially said anything yet, take it with a grain of salt for now.

However a launch on the Switch would indeed help to draw more players onto the platform since it would show that the console could be used to do more than just play games, like Sony and Microsoft’s offerings in which users can stream music, videos, chat with friends, and more.

Hidden Switch ‘Golf’ Game Could Be A Tribute To The Late Satoru Iwata

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

Recently it was discovered that on every Nintendo Switch console there is a hidden game in the form of the NES classic “Golf”. Its existence was unclear and led to a bit of speculation, such as whether an NES emulator could be eventually launched for the console, but as it turns out the reason could be a lot more touching than you think.

In an update on the SwitchBrew.org website, user yellows8 who made the initial discovery stated that it seems that the game could be an Easter Egg of sorts, and also a tribute to the late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata who passed away back in 2015. According to yellows8, the game can only be launched on the 11th of July which was Iwata’s date of passing, and that the Joy-Cons must be held the same way that Iwata typically holds his hands during Nintendo’s presentations.

Note that because the time and date on the Switch is server side, users trying to adjust the clock manually won’t work, meaning that if you missed out on checking out the game this year, you’ll have to wait until 2018 to try again, although there could be a way to bypass it as there have been some videos uploaded online showing users activating it.

As to the significance of the Golf game, apparently this is a game that was programmed by Iwata himself back at his time in the HAL Laboratory, so it makes sense that they chose this game to pay tribute. Nintendo has yet to confirm this particular theory, but it does make sense and we have to admit that if true, it is a very clever and touching tribute indeed.

Square Enix Figuring Out How To Bring Final Fantasy XV Onto Nintendo Switch

Given that different consoles use a different combination of hardware, and with PC configurations being so varied, we can imagine the complexities involved when trying to design a game meant to launch on multiple platforms, and this is an issue that Square Enix is trying to figure out with Final Fantasy XV for the Nintendo Switch.

Speaking to Eurogamer, the game’s director Hajime Tabata revealed that the company was still trying to figure out the best way to bring the game onto Nintendo’s latest console. It was initially speculated that Square Enix might end up bringing the Pocket Edition version of the game onto the Switch, but Tabata’s statements suggest that the company was looking to bring a more full-on experience.

According to Tabata, “We’re actually doing very specific technical investigations into what’s possible at the moment. Where we are at the moment – we’ve completed those tests and have worked out where the ground lies. We’re currently in the middle of the discussion and debate about what we should be doing, and how to realise that on the Switch.”

He also adds, “We can’t currently announce anything – we haven’t come to a full decision on the best way to do it yet. We’re having very open, frank discussions with Nintendo at the moment about what they think is the best thing to do. It’s all under investigation.” Square Enix had previously promised that they will be fully supporting the Switch, with Tabata claiming that the Switch was a “dream machine”.

Nintendo Switch Consoles Are Hiding A Copy Of NES ‘Golf’ Game

The Nintendo Switch is Nintendo’s latest console, but yet for some reason, it seems that every copy of the console that has been released to date is hiding a copy of the NES game, “Golf”, or at least that seems to be what the folks over at SwitchBrew.org (via ArsTechnica) have recently discovered.

It doesn’t seem like the title can be easily accessed by just about anyone, so its existence on the Switch is unclear. It also appears that this isn’t just a coincidence as further investigation has revealed that the NES game was designed specifically to be compatible with the Switch, and that it will even support motion controls using the Joy-Con.

This has led to some speculation that maybe Nintendo could be getting ready to launch an NES emulator for the Switch and that they could have been testing out game compatibility and controls with Golf. It could also be an easter egg, although exactly how one accesses it is unclear since according to the poster, yellows8, “it’s unknown what exactly triggers launching this title.”

When ArsTechnica reached out to Nintendo to comment, all they got was a “ha!”, while the folks at Polygon were simply told that they would be looking into it. It is rather mysterious and we’ll be keeping an eye out for further developments.

DOOM For The Nintendo Switch Will Have Some Caveats

Tyler Lee September 15, 2017

As you might have heard, Bethesda recently announced that they will be bringing the 2016 DOOM reboot onto the Nintendo Switch. This is a pretty huge deal and we’re sure that there will be quite a few Switch gamers who will appreciate the move. However it seems that there will some caveats that gamers might want to take note of.

In a report from Engadget, Bethesda has confirmed to the publication that DOOM for the Switch will come with all the updates and DLCs that have been released for the game to date. However it will not include the SnapMap level editor, although it is unclear why that is, so if making maps/levels is something you enjoy doing, know that the Switch version of the game will not support it.

The report also goes on to confirm that if gamers were to purchase a physical copy of the game that it will only contain the single-player campaign. For those who want to play the multiplayer campaign, you will have to download a free update. This is due to the storage limitations on the physical cartridge that the Switch uses for its games. Obviously this means that if you purchase the digital copy of DOOM that it will contain everything (except the SnapLevel map editor like we mentioned above).

At the moment it is unclear when DOOM will be released for the Switch, but Bethesda is targeting for a release this year, so we’ll just have to keep an eye out for a release date, which hopefully will be shared in the near future.

Nintendo Switch Was The Best-Selling Console In The US In August

Tyler Lee September 15, 2017

If you’re a fan of redemption stories, then the Nintendo Switch is a good example of one, at least as far as video game consoles are concerned. Nintendo suffered quite a blow to their reputation and financials with the Wii U, but with the Switch, the company is turning things around.

In fact according to the latest stats published by The NPD Group, the Nintendo Switch was actually the best-selling console in the US for the month of August. However it isn’t only in August that the Switch did well for itself as it was shown that the Switch has managed to be the top console in 4 out of the 6 months since it was released earlier this March.

This is actually a huge change from the Wii U in which many felt that it was a failure, with some even predicting that it could be the start of the end for Nintendo. In addition to being the top-selling console in the US, recent stats have also revealed that the Switch has managed to sell as many as 5 million units worldwide, which once again is a difference of night and day as far as the situation with Wii U is concerned.

Nintendo still has quite a few titles that have yet to be launched, like the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey and Super Smash Bros., and let’s not forget that companies such as Bethesda are bringing titles like DOOM, Wolfenstein II, and Skyrim onto the Switch that will no doubt help to attract new players.

Super Mario Odyssey Nintendo Switch Bundle Announced

Tyler Lee September 14, 2017

According to the latest figures, Nintendo has managed to sell over 5 million units of the Nintendo Switch worldwide. This is quite an accomplishment especially when you consider that the flop that was the Wii U took considerably longer to hit such figures. However there are probably still plenty of gamers out there who are still on the fence.

If you are one of those gamers, then you might be interested to learn that Nintendo has announced a Super Mario Odyssey Switch bundle. Basically this bundle will contain the Nintendo Switch and a copy of Super Mario Odyssey, and the console will also sport a pair of red Joy-Cons, which is a slightly darker shade of red compared to the neon red Joy-Cons. Also based on the box’s art, it looks like the bundle will include a special carrying case themed after the game.

The console itself doesn’t appear to be special in design and the only difference would be its red Joy-Cons. The entire bundle will set gamers back $380, so if you have yet to buy the Switch and have been looking for a reason to, then maybe this Super Mario Odyssey bundle could convince you to make that leap. The bundle will be officially released on the 27th of October, which is also when Super Mario Odyssey will be released, so you’ve got a little over a month to make up your mind.

Skyrim For The Nintendo Switch Set For November 17

Tyler Lee September 14, 2017

One of the games that captured the attention of gamers when the Nintendo Switch’s trailer was first launch was Skyrim. This is because while many did expect titles like Mario to be released for the Switch, Skyrim was actually a surprise and not many expected to see the title being shown off in the console’s trailer.

For whatever reason Bethesda and Nintendo refused to confirm the game’s existence, at least until E3 2017 where the game was officially announced. At that time there was no mention of when the game would be released, at least until now where Nintendo has confirmed that Skyrim for the Switch will be released on the 17th of November.

This means that there is still a couple of months of waiting left to do, but we guess better late than never, right? At the moment it is still unclear if this version of Skyrim is the Skyrim Special Edition that will feature enhanced graphics, or if it will be the original version. Either way Skyrim was extremely popular when it was launched, so even if the Switch version does not feature enhanced graphics, it will still contain all the features that gamers have come to know and love of the title.

In the meantime Bethesda has also announced that they will be bringing titles like the 2016 DOOM reboot and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus onto the Switch later this year and in 2018 respectively.

Bethesda To Bring DOOM And Wolfenstein II To The Nintendo Switch

Tyler Lee September 14, 2017

There have been some who argue that Nintendo’s consoles are more about playing party games and that maybe it isn’t really a console for the “hardcore” gamers. While we suppose there’s nothing wrong with being seen as a family-friendly console, hardcore gamers who want more “serious” games might want to take note of Bethesda’s latest announcement.

The company has recently announced that they will be bringing DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus onto the Nintendo Switch. For those wondering, the DOOM title is the reboot to the franchise that was launched in 2016, while Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a new game announced at E3 earlier this year and sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order which was released in 2014, so it’s not as if these are old titles that are only now being ported onto the Switch.

Unfortunately gamers will have a bit of waiting to do because no specific release dates have been mentioned. However for DOOM, the game is expected to be available this holiday season, while Wolfenstein II will only be released in 2018 for the Switch. The version that is being released for the Xbox One, PS4, and the PC will still be released next month.

It will be interesting to see how these games perform on the Nintendo Switch console, which is supposedly less powerful compared to some of the current-gen consoles today, but if you own the Switch and are fans of both titles, then these could be games worth looking forward to.
