If you were planning to use the Nintendo Switch to surf the web when it comes out , you’re going to be a tad disappointed.
The Switch will not have an web browser upon launch according to Nintendo‘s president, Tatsumi Kimishima, revealed in an interview with Time this week.
“In terms of the internet browser, since all of our efforts have gone toward making Switch an amazing dedicated video game platform, it will not support it, at least at launch.”
There is always the option of using the internet browsers on the Wii U or 3DS systems.Even though both those consoles integrate browsers, it never been a staple for either gaming system. Nintendo has admitted it was challenging to create the Wii U’s browser; the company may have decided that in order to meet its March 3rd deadline, a browser wouldn’t make the cut.
Still, Kimishima leaves the possibility open that a browser could come later as some sort of update and when that time comes, we will let you know!
