Watch Netflix and YouTube On Your Nintendo Switch

Playing games might not be the only thing you’ll be doing in your Nintendo Switch soon.

This secret but not-so-secret news came as a surprise since there was no mention of it at the E3. But it seems like the Nintendo Switch may soon have support for Netflix and Youtube.

While the Switch comes with WiFi capabilities and a web browser, it doesn’t support streaming applications. Hulu is the only streamer available in the console and has been since last year. However, this is only available for users in the US and Japan.

But that might soon change. Spotted by Reddit user DevCakes, new Switch listings for Netflix, YouTube and Hulu, have appeared on Best Buy’s website. The information has since been removed but not before a screenshot was done.

Under the heading “Smart Enabled”, BestBuy promises access to “a world of instant entertainment” with Nintendo Switch.

“Just connect to the Internet and stream movies, listen to music, and access a wide variety of other content.”

Below the description were the three logos of Netflix, Hulu and Youtube as examples.

BestBuy has since responded to the leak saying that it was an error. Do you believe them?

Blizzard Is Working On A New Unannounced Diablo Game

A job posting from Blizzard confirms work on a project in the Diablo universe.

Video game developer Blizzard has not made any announcements but it seems that there is a new Diablo game in the works.

A job listing on the company’s website is hinting that a development is underway. Looking at the post, it is pretty straightforward: “The minions of Hell are growing stronger… We’re working on a new, unannounced Diablo project.”

Previously, the California-based company has teased about a Nintendo Switch version of Diablo. But people are quick to dismiss that the unannounced Diablo project is referring to this. The description asks for a “skilled dungeon artist”. This means there is a need for new art assets.

The exact description states:

“We’re working on a new, unannounced Diablo project. Are you a skilled dungeon artist? Come work with us, and together we will build something exceptional.”

The dungeon artist will be responsible for “modelling and texturing compelling assets.” He is also expected to work well “in an environment of peers who are passionate about working on the dark gothic world of Diablo, making great games, killing millions of monsters and getting loot!”

The 24th Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is already happening next week so it’s highly doubtful a new Diablo game will be unveiled there. However, they could probably announce that it will be in the works? Maybe. We’re actually hoping they will.

Diablo 3 is turning six years old this year. I think it’s about time for a new one, don’t you think?

“We’re also hard at work on another Pokemon core RPG designed for Nintendo Switch,” said Masuda. “It’s being designed simultaneously with Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!

 

Masuda added, “Today I can only tell you of its existence, but I can assure you that there’s another game that we’re pouring a lot of our energy into over at Game Freak.”

 

Meanwhile, in the same press conference, President Tsunekazu Ishihara has pointed out that the game series would be “in the tradition of Pokémon X and Y and Sun and Moon,” hinting that these series would likely comprise the eight generation (!) of games.

 

It can be recalled earlier that Pokémon Company disclosed that a traditional set of Pokémon games were in the works for Switch during Nintendo’s E3 2017 stream. Check the company’s 45-minute press conference below for more information.

Monster Hunter To Debut In Nintendo Switch on August 28

Fans of the popular Monster Hunter World has something to cheer about. This comes after Capcom has announced that the game above would be available on Nintendo Switch. The developer said that Monster Hunter World’s series would debut in Switch in North America.

 

Monster Hunter in Switch

However, the series, according to Capcom won’t be part of the World game. Capcom claims that the game that would be released in Switch is a follow-up to 2016 Nintendo 3DS game which is Monster Hunter Generations.

The Monster Hunter Generations is actually a sequel that was already launched in Japan last year. The name, however, is different as it is under the name Monster Hunter XX. When the said game would debut in English, it would be known as Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

 

Gamers across the globe welcome such development, saying it’s, in fact, a great series shifting to the Switch. But this should also serve as a stern warning for Monster Hunter World. Fans of the World claims that Generation is more classic than Hunter game, citing the game structure looks more modern and fluid.

They added that it would be great for long time fans of the game series. But, obviously, not the best entry point for new comers. Here’s a portion of Capcom’s description about the game’s setup for your reference.

“Hunters can face off against the series’ largest roster of unique monsters in this nostalgic look back at the series’ beginnings and evolutions. Take on the role of a brave hunter on an adrenaline-fueled adventure challenging larger-than-life beasts,” Capcom said.

The game developer added that “completing quests will yield valuable resources for crafting countless distinct weapons and equipment fashioned after players’ defeated foes. Along with their journey, hunters must defend each of the game’s four villages from major threats known as the Fated Four, plus an even more dangerous new Elder Dragon.”

Generations Ultimate is expected to be part of next month’s E3 as the game would make its debut on the Switch on August 28th.

Nintendo Switch: Nintendo Is Facing Patent Infringement Investigation in US

The US International Trade Commission has initiated an investigation against Nintendo. This comes after Gamevice has accused the company of violating its patent on attachable handheld gamepads.

 

Is Nintendo’s Switch fate hanging?

 

 

In case you don’t know, Gamevice is the company responsible for developing Wikipad and a line of snap-on controllers. The company has asserted that Nintendo has actually violated the provisions of the Tariff Act of 1930. Now, Gamevice is requesting a cease and desist order against Nintendo.

 

With this, the fate of Nintendo’s Switch is hanging as the cease and desist order may consequently halt the imports of Switch in the United States of America.

 

“The products at issue in the investigation are controller systems with parts that attach to two sides of an electronic device, such as a smartphone or tablet, and the parts fit into a user’s hands and have gaming controls,” the USITC’s statement reads.

 

The USITC has yet to schedule and announce the possible date of the end investigation within the inclusive 45 days. Furthermore, the USITC noted that while the investigation has started, it has yet to rule the validity of the complaint.

 

An evidentiary hearing will be held to determine if indeed Nintendo has violated the provisions of the Tariff Act of 1930. The USITC said that it would announce its final decision the soonest possible and practicable time.

 

As of posting, Nintendo has yet to issue a statement about the investigation.
