To Take On Google Stadia, Nintendo Will Launch Switch Do Game Streaming Service
Nintendo is one of the big names in the gaming industry. The company has been shelling out iconic gaming franchises and popular consoles for decades. Now, the hot word in the gaming world is online game streaming. The service has existed for a while now but Google’s announcement of Stadia has started a new arms race. Many giants in the electronics industry, namely Microsoft and Sony, have already started their own respective services while Nintendo previously mentioning no immediate shift towards online gaming.
According to a new report, however, Nintendo just might finally enter the online realm of gaming with Nintendo Switch Do.
Just a couple of days ago, the Nintendo Switch Lite was unveiled to the world; it was an affordable version of the original Switch minus the modularity and TV support. Now, a new trademark application hints at Nintendo planning to introduce some form of online game streaming on its Switch platforms. The report arrives after the company was seen branching out its business to Israel, where they had filed the application.
The company was seen introducing a new name, Nintendo Switch Do, on the trademark application; what it exactly is and how it works is still uncertain. What can be gathered from the description provided is that it could possibly be an “entertainment service, provide downloadable games, a portable game with LCD screen and handheld games.”
The move could arrive to make the Nintendo Switch series all the more attractive and approachable for prospective buyers. For example, Nintendo Switch Online was introduced last year as an online multiplayer gaming subscription service. It is clear the company is going to continue its Switch series for the foreseeable future and is probably introducing the Switch Do to compliment its handheld gaming console. Unfortunately, finer details are currently unavailable and only an official announcement from the company can shed some light on the matter. Stay tuned for updates.
