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.
