Article Indie Game Development On The Switch
Do you plan on developing your next game for the Nintendo Switch?

Since the 4th quarter of 2016, announcements have been made regarding Nintendo's support of both Unity and Unreal engines.

Over the past few months, Nintendo has also been showing a lot more effort towards gaining third-party support back for the Nintendo Switch; something that the company lacked on their Wii U console.

I've been fine-combing the net in search of any official news that would help the indie developer, but as of yet; all we're safe to assume is that the support is real and the access will be there. When, you ask? Well, according to anyone who has access to the official Nintendo Developer portal, us smaller guys will probably find out after the console is released. Switch dev-kits are only available to their closest partners right now.

Until then, aspiring game developers can continue to hone their skills and work on their projects on either of the engines. I can almost sense that more news in regards to this will arrive sooner than expected.

If interested, here are two videos showcasing each engine:

UNITY 5


Unreal Engine 4

Article Nintendo Switch doesn't support Netflix

Multiple sources online are reporting of some questions Nintendo recently answered.

Basically, Nintendo stated that they worked hard on making the Nintendo Switch as a video-game dedicated platform. Unfortunately, there is no support for any streaming services, but they mentioned that they might consider it in the near future.

Hmm, I'm not exactly fond of this and I do hope they re-evaluate their strategy a bit. Sure, I don't exactly use my Nintendo 3DS to watch Netflix or YouTube videos, but this is another added inconvenience; being that we'll be using our smartphone to talk to people online and set up multiplayer lobbies.

The simplistic approach would be to have it all run from the tablet. It's also a huge selling point for potential consumers who are looking at the switch as a gaming console and a tablet.
