Posted by IGN on Sunday, December 20, 2018 06:00:51The Nintendo Switch, which is still a long way from launch, has had no home game this holiday season, but that’s about to change.
IGN is reporting that Nintendo has announced that no home games will be released on the system during the holiday period, but will still be able to stream content and download pre-made games via the Nintendo Switch App.
The Switch App is available in North America, Europe, and Australia, and will be available to download for $1.99 per month.
Nintendo has confirmed that the App will not be bundled with the Switch console, but it will be used to manage Nintendo Switch consoles and apps, as well as the Switch game library.
While there is no home-console version of the Nintendo TV yet, the Switch will come with the Nintendo 3DS XL.
The 3DSXL will have a touch screen, and can also be used for playing games.
The Nintendo Switch will have support for four controllers, though there’s no word on whether or not that includes a Joy-Con.
Nintendo is also reportedly working on a new system that will use Bluetooth for remote play.
The Nintendo 3ds XL was launched in December 2016, but has not been released to consumers yet.
It is compatible with all Nintendo Switch games, and has a price tag of $299.99.
