Nintendo Switch News Channel

Nintendo Switch News Channel (shortened to just News on the Nintendo Switch menu) is a feature of the Nintendo Switch which allows players to access news, promotions, and upcoming developments directly from Nintendo about games, events, console updates, and other matters. Naturally, this feature requires an internet connection to receive new posts and other updates. This channel can be accessed from the Nintendo Switch's main menu by selecting the "News" icon in the lower portion of the screen, and can also be accessed from the start-up screen.

OverviewEdit

The Nintendo Switch News Channel is divided into two main parts. The first is the "Featured" and "Latest" category, and is the first the player will see upon entering the channel. This section is devoted to general news about Nintendo and its news postings, and also features the latest postings for specific games the player is subscribed to. The second is devoted to news feeds for specific games, which players will be subscribed to if they purchase the game in question, or for those non-owned and manually subscribed to. Followed channels can also be manually "unfollowed", even for games that are owned. This latter section can be accessed by pressing the + button to "Find Channels".
