Reggie Fils-Amie Discusses Switch Online


Reggie Fils-Amie,  President of Nintendo of America, recently sat down for an interview with GameSpot, during this he was asked how smartphones will be used with the Nintendo Switch.

“The smart phone app that we’re creating, that will be part of our online service, we believe is going to be a very compelling part of the overall proposition because that’s how you’ll voice chat, that’s how you’ll do your matchmaking, and create your lobby. We also think it’s a very elegant solution because if you’ve taken your switch on the go, you’ve put yourself in a hotspot, you’re looking at get a quick match of Mario Kart in, to whip out some sort of bulky, gamer headset is a bit of a challenge. So we think we’ve got an elegant solution. That’s a very specific answer to your question”.

Fils-Amie did not mention which features will not require the app or if that it is specific to using the switch on the go.  Nintendo fans can expect to learn more about Nintendo’s revamped online service in the not too distant future.
