A Netflix customer service rep has told GoNintendo user KamehamehaX that Netflix is “locked and loaded” for the Nintendo Switch. The app has supposedly been submitted for Nintendo’s popular platform and it should be only a matter of time before the streaming video service shows up on the device. I think it would be pretty incredible if this happens sooner rather than later and we will keep you updated once the news hits.
It has been revealed that Nintendo has spent an estimated $4.5 Million dollars on advertising for the month of August. If this turns out to be true, it would be more money than Xbox and Playstation. Playstation campaigns amounted to a total estimated figure of $2.5m and Xbox at $1.5m.
It will be interesting to see how things ramp up in the coming Holiday season as the release of XBOX One X is fast approaching while Sony will be pushing its hardware to the fullest. Nintendo has gone on record stating that it may be hard to find a Switch this Holiday season so let’s all just wait and see how this pans out. It has been nice to see a ton of advertisements from Nintendo products as the Wii U didn’t receive this much love when it was available.
Yesterday the good people from Bungie teased trials of the nine for its recently released FPS Destiny 2 and today it is Live! Exciting times for Destiny fans and things are just beginning for the big game. We cannot wait to see what’s in store for Destiny 2 and will hopefully have our official review for the game by the end of the weekend. I have really been enjoying the game thus far and see myself playing this well into the new year. It just plays and looks so darn good…
The latest Pokémon to come to Build a Bear Workshop is the one and only Pokémon, Meowth. Meowth is headed to the popular retailer and will run you $28. You can preorder the popular Pokemon but it will only available online via the website. Looks pretty nice if you ask me.
Nintendo has just shared that Japan will be getting two more New 2DS XL colors for customers to choose from. Players in Japan will be able to pick from the pictured colors above and will now have a number of options if they’re thinking about picking up the handheld.

Nintendo announced this news during its Nintendo Direct held earlier today.

The promising RPG for the Nintendo Switch will release on December 1st, which is just in time for the Holiday season. A slew of other games were shown for the system but Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was one of the Direct’s standout titles.
