"Currently no Plans" for Netflix Nintendo Switch App, Netflix Says

Part of that plan includes something Nintendo has already been doing: Focusing on putting a good lineup of games on the console, which we saw throughout 2017 with titles like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So far, the Nintendo Switch has been a celebration of features and games flawless for adults who grew up with Nintendo and now must fit it into their busy grown-up lives. Switch (and Xbox One X) drove hardware sales up 38%, while new game sales rose 7.3% year-over-year, attributable to Call of Duty: World War II and Switch titles. Streaming giant Netflix also remains absent, and it seems like that isn't changing any time soon. Now some of the developers who were behind Citra have made a decision to shift on Nintendo Switch and announced Yuzu, a brand new emulator that is currently in experimental stage. Many fans have already expressed that they will prefer to buy the Nintendo Switch version of Freedom Planet as they would be able to bring it with them anywhere because of Nintendo Switch's handheld mode.

After a huge first year, Nintendo Switch is right now the go-to handheld consoles for all gamers. However, you may find comfort knowing that Netflix and Nintendo have not given up on this possibility just yet.

The now-deleted tweet from Netflix customer service. Seeing as how Nintendo still hasn't figured out its paid online service yet, there's obviously still some kinks that need to be worked out.

While the code currently is used only for reverse-engineering and homebrew development, more improvements will follow due it now being open-source and publically available to test, improve and comment on.
