E3 is the biggest gaming conference of the year, where many video game and console companies -including Nintendo -like to make big announcements. Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch was released earlier this week, and like the Xbox One port before it, gamers are unable to compete against those on PlayStation 4 (although all consoles can play against gamers on the PC, macOS and iOS).

Originally, the Nintendo Switch received the NicoNico streaming app last July, debuting video services on the console. However, the listing has since been removed from their website as we assume that Nintendo wants to announce the availability of these streaming apps during their E3 conference. While that may change, fans will have to wait until tomorrow to learn more about Nintendo's plans for the future.

The Best Buy listing of the Nintendo Switch is now listing Netflix, Hulu, and Youtube as features on the Nintendo Switch.

While Hulu has been on the console since November 2017, it is only available in the USA and Japan, and quite frankly, Netflix and YouTube have much more appeal to many of us. Hulu is still available on the console, however. Additional context has also been added to this story.
