  • Nintendo Switch won’t be able to stream Netflix or anything else at launch

    You might be one of the Nintendo fans who preordered the Switch console fast enough to secure an early March ship date, and you might be excited about all the exciting things you’ll be able to do with it. I hate to rain on your parade, but there’s one thing that you won’t be able to do on the Nintendo Switch, at least not at launch: stream movies and TV shows. That’s right, Nintendo confirmed there’s not going to be no Netflix for you, Switch buyers. In an interview with Kotaku , Nintendo confirmed that there won’t be any Netflix support out of the box for the Switch. In fact, there won’t be support for any other streaming platform either. “All of our efforts have gone toward making the Nintendo Switch system an amazing, dedicated video game platform so it will not support any video-streaming services at launch.,” Nintendo said when asked about support for Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO Go, or anything else on the market. “However, support for video-streaming services is being considered for a future update.” What you’ll find on the Switch is a Mii Maker tool that lets you create Mii characters from the Profile screen, if you need any of that on the new console. However, it’s not as exciting or useful as, say, Netflix support. The interview also reveals that each Nintendo Switch can support up to eight user accounts, and each account's eShop will be tied to the user’s home country. Additionally,  Kotaku  learned that Wii and Wii U controllers won’t work with the Switch, at least not initially. But support may be coming down the road if Nintendo decides there's enough demand. After all, it's not like there are even that many Wii U owners out there to begin with, so there probably won't be too many people beating Nintendo's door down over the decision.

  • Here’s why Nintendo thinks the Switch will succeed where the Wii U failed

    Following the Nintendo Switch hands-on event in New York City last week, Nintendo of America CEO Reggie Fils-Aime told Polygon that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be the final first-party game released for the Wii U. In other words, after the game launches on March 3rd, the Wii U will be dead, thus ending one of the more disappointing chapters in the company's long and storied history. Everything about the Wii U, from its underpowered hardware to its oversized controller to its embarrassingly dated online platform, was confusing and off-putting. Nintendo is painfully aware of all of those mistakes, but how does the company plan on avoiding them with the upcoming Switch ? Speaking with GameSpot this week, Fils-Aime explained that the concept of the Switch is much easier to understand than that of the Wii U, which was much more difficult to market than the Wii: "Nintendo Switch is a home console you can play anywhere, with anyone. Clear. Compelling. We see the reaction by consumers whether it's measured in Twitter trending topics or views of videos on YouTube or just the frequency with which I get called by old high school buddies that I haven't heard from in 30 years who are asking me how to get their hands on Nintendo Switch. We have communicated the proposition clearly and it is compelling." Along a clearer, more compelling concept, Nintendo also plans to release games at a faster pace: "Wii U will go down as having fantastic content--the issue was as you look at the reality of exactly when the games were launched, there were large gaps in between." The Switch will have a "steady cadence of content." That sounds encouraging, but at the moment, there are only six games scheduled to launch alongside the Switch on March 3rd, and only two of those will be exclusives ( Super Bomberman R , 1-2 Switch ). As I stated in my hands-on preview of the Switch , the hardware itself is fantastic and as interesting as anything on the market, but Nintendo is going to struggle to move millions of consoles if the third-party output is going to be as dire for the next several years as it has been since the Wii U launched in 2012.

  • ‘Fire Emblem Heroes’ is Nintendo’s next mobile game, launches in February

    As expected, Nintendo unveiled its next mobile game on Wednesday afternoon during the company's Fire Emblem live stream. The new game is called Fire Emblem Heroes  it will release for both Android and iOS platforms on February 2nd, despite the video stating that it will come to iPhone and iPad "soon." Similar to Super Mario Run , Fire Emblem Heroes is a simplified version of the games in the franchise on which it is based, with gameplay and visuals better suited to a smartphone than a handheld console or an HDTV. Like other Fire Emblem titles, Fire Emblem Heroes is a strategy game in which you take control of a team of characters and navigate a grid-based battlefield while slaying enemies in your path. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq1Xzycyp2E While the maps in Fire Emblem Heroes  all exist on the same 8x6 grid, Nintendo expects fans of the series to find the tactical aspect of the game just as challenging as they would in one of the series' previous entries. Fire Emblem Heroes will be free to play, but Nintendo says it will include optional in-app purchases as well. Those in-app purchases include orbs, which can be used to acquire new heroes to join your team. Although you can acquire orbs within the game, you can supplement your supply with real money too. Along with a main quest, the mobile game also features a Training Tower in which to train your heroes, Special Maps where seasonal events will take place and Arena Duels where you'll compete for high scores. You can also participate in Hero Battles, and if you win, that hero will join your team. You can pre-register for Fire Emblem Heroes on Google Play  right now. Updated on January 18th, 2016. Article updated to reflect the fact that the game will launch on iOS and Android simultaneously.

  • Watch live as Nintendo unveils its mobile Fire Emblem game

    Less than a week after introducing the world to the Switch, Nintendo will host a Nintendo Direct presentation on Wednesday at 5 PM ET to discuss upcoming titles in the Fire Emblem series. Beyond that, we don't know specifically what the company plans to discuss, although we can make some educated guesses. During the Switch live event last week, Nintendo gave us our first glimpse at Fire Emblem Warriors for the Switch. Similar to Hyrule Warriors and Dragon Quest Warriors before it, Fire Emblem Warriors will combine the world and characters of the Fire Emblem series with the gameplay from Koei Tecmo's popular Dynasty Warriors  series. Considering Nintendo is focusing an entire Direct on Fire Emblem , we hope to see some actual gameplay from the crossover title, rather than another CG teaser . In addition to Fire Emblem Warrior news, we also expect to learn more about the previously announced Fire Emblem mobile title. Last year, Nintendo revealed that it would develop mobile games based on multiple established series, including Mario , Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing . While all three games were expected to arrive on mobile platforms before the end of 2016, Nintendo ended up delaying Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing to early 2017 in order to focus on getting Super Mario Run out the door. Providing there are no further delays, both the Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing mobile titles should be ready to roll out by March, which makes this the perfect opportunity to show off Fire Emblem on iOS (and possible Android) for the first time on Wednesday night. You can watch the Fire Emblem -focused Nintendo Direct below at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET:

  • One Big Reason Not to Buy Nintendo Switch

    Golocal247.com news

    The Nintendo Switch is a pretty versatile gaming machine, but don't count on it replacing your home streaming box anytime soon. According to several reports, Nintendo's $299 portable/home console hybrid won't have any significant entertainment features when it releases on March 3, meaning you'll have to get your Netflix and Hulu fix elsewhere. Business Insider spoke to Nintendo's Kit Ellis, who said that the Switch "won't have many multimedia features at launch." While this doesn't rule out the possibility of popular streaming apps coming to the platform later this year, it seems like you'll be strictly playing games on the Switch on release date (and besides the stunning new Zelda title, there aren't many notable launch games).

  • Nintendo kicks off limited-time Loads of Coins event in ‘Super Mario Run’

    Following in the footsteps of Pokemon Go (and virtually every other online mobile game on the App Store), Nintendo introduced a limited-time event called "Loads of Coins" in Super Mario Run this week. Throughout the event, which lasts from January 16th to January 26th, players will be able to collect 1.5 times as many coins as usual by competing in the game's Toad Rally mode. "The Loads of Coins event in now on!" reads the event notification that popped up this week. "Win at Toad Rally during this period, and you'll get 1.5 times as many coins as usual. Now's your time to rake it in!" The notification goes on to explain that players will need to have completed the Kingdom Builder tutorial before they can join in on the fun. Players will also need to use Rally Tickets to enter into a Toad Rally, as usual, and will still be awarded the standard amount of coins if they lose a match. It's a shame that Super Mario Run is likely never going to receive the kind of substantial updates that revived Pokemon Go at the end of 2016, but it's nice to see that Nintendo hasn't completely abandoned the app following its release in December. Hopefully this will be the first of many events to come.

  • This might be your last chance to preorder a Nintendo Switch

    Somewhat unsurprisingly, Nintendo Switch preorders dried up within days of the live presentation in Japan on January 12th. The upcoming console is unavailable at Amazon, Best Buy, Target and even GameStop , but if you're desperate to get one on launch day, there's still one retailer you might want to visit. In an email sent to BGR on Tuesday, a spokesperson for Nintendo alerted us that it is still possible to preorder the Switch in-store at Walmart. In order to reserve a console for launch day, you'll need to visit the Pickup desk at you local Walmart and put down 10% up front (which should amount to ~$30). Providing the Walmart you visit will let you preorder a Switch, you should be guaranteed to receive one on March 3rd — the day the console hits store shelves. Before you start running around town to place preorders though, it might not be a bad idea to call ahead and make sure that the store is still taking reservations. Hopefully, as the launch date approaches, Nintendo will continue to update stock at various retailers around the country and around the world. GameStop said in a press release that its "initial allotment" of Switch consoles has been reserved, but that it is "working closely with Nintendo to get additional Nintendo Switch units." Presumably, it's not the only retailer pushing Nintendo to provide more units. In addition to the console, the Joy-Con Charging Grip is also beginning to sell out, as Nintendo revealed over the weekend that the Grip included in the box won't actually charge the controllers .
