Niconico app officially confirmed for Nintendo Switch in Japan

Nintendo Switch handheld console NINTENDONintendo Switch video apps could launch soon
Frank Williams | 12 July, 2017, 18:54

Niconico is going to be the first application built for the Nintendo Switch. Or rather, it now lacks one of the most popular entertainment pastimes of the modern age: video streaming. Japanese video streaming service niconico has announced an app for the Nintendo Switch. Up to this point, the Switch had no streaming apps to speak of on its system, making it a departure from the Wii U which had access to several streaming services like Netflix. And apparently that time is this week with the first streaming app that you can't have. But in Nintendo's home town, it's pretty much a given. As users livestream their content, viewers can leave comments which then appear on the video itself.

Don't worry if you've never heard of Niconico either - it's immensely popular in Japan, but it is also only exclusive to Japan (with some English options). For those unfamiliar, basically Niconico is a video streaming website similar to YouTube, although the downside is that for now, the app will be limited to the Japanese market. We do know that the only supported language by the app will be Japanese, which leads one to believe that it'll only work in Japan.

China Officially Sets Up Its First Overseas Base in Djibouti
In addition, the USA operates an airfield in Djibouti from which the Pentagon launches drone strikes in the region. The United States, France, Japan, Italy and Spain already have bases there, and Saudi Arabia is now building one.

The service will hit consoles tomorrow, so very soon we'll be able to see if United States and European Union users will be able to get the app too.

That said, there is a bit of a good news for Switch owners everywhere. The niconico Switch app will be released tomorrow on the Japanese eShop. Apps from popular media services including Netflix, Youtube and Spotify would be convenient to have on the Nintendo Switch.
