Building off of yesterday’s post regarding a possible Nintendo Direct for this coming Thursday, November 8th, there seems to be more smoke emanating from the metaphorical fire in terms of possible confirmation.
As first reported by NintendoWorldReport last night, on YouTube’s feedback page, the Nintendo Switch is now listed as a compatible device for viewing YouTube. Sources close with the site have identified this Thursday as a probable date. Both YouTube and Nintendo have yet to confirm this date yet.
Normally, when official outlets have “leaks” like this happen, it’s only a matter of time until the rumor becomes factual. In this case, it’s almost a complete no-brainer for the largest content digital distributor in the world to create a Switch port of their app. Many argue this is long overdue, along with the mega-ton media juggernaut that is Netflix. Both media outlets have been long rumored to make their appearance on the system, with Netflix even being rumored to be at the “ready to go” stage in terms of release for a Switch specific app.
None the less, this adds more credence to the probability of a Nintendo Direct being imminent. Normally, Nintendo releases a press statement and social media blast about 36-48 hours in advance of a Direct, to give media and consumers ample time to make themselves available for the event.
