Switch gets its first video app for Japan – it’s called NicoNico

The Nintendo Switch is getting its first video app this week in Japan: it’s called ‘NicoNico’. It’s a video-sharing platform that resembles YouTube, basically.


  • NicoNico is a Japanese video-sharing platform and the app for the Switch is out this week.
  • You’ll be able to grab the new app in Europe and North America if you have a Japanese Switch account – it’s easy to set up.
  • This is the first time we’ve seen any kind of support for the Nintendo Switch with new applications – does this mean we can expect Netflix and an internet browser in the not too distant future as well? We hope so.

You can watch the trailer, which shows NicoNico running on the Switch, below. Will you be trying to download the app later this week?
