Nintendo Switch: No Netflix at launch; no versions of Resident Evil 7, Titanfall 2 ever


Good news and bad news.

Nintendo has told Kotaku that Netflix and other video streaming services will not be available at the Nintendo Switch’s launch.

“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 confirmed. “However, support for video-streaming services is being considered for a future update.”

Additionally, titles like Titanfall 2 and Resident Evil 7 won’t be making an appearance on Nintendo’s upcoming hybrid home console.

“No. F*** no. No you’re not going to be able to fit Titanfall on [Switch],” said Respawn’s Mohammad Alavi to Drunk Tech Review.

“That’s the same Zelda from the Wii U,” he added, laughing.

Capcom’s Masachika Kawata was a little more tactful, praising the Switch before ruling it out.

“I think it’s a very unique piece of hardware,” Kawata told Express Online. “I’m looking forward to the possibilities of the system itself, but we have no plans at the moment regarding Resident Evil on Switch.”

The Switch hits store shelves on 3 March for $469.95 AUDResident Evil 7 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 24 January, and Titanfall 2 is already available on those same platforms.
