Nintendo Switch announces no internet browser for the system on launch

Nintendo was set to release its latest model in less than a month; however, due to the company being unable to locate one of the consoles core features, they have been forced to change the date.

Nintendo Switch fans are not going to be impressed with this latest blunder! After waiting months for the release of the new hybrid console a new set of problems have been discovered.

In an interview with Time Magazine Tatsumi Kimishima, Nintendo’s president revealed that they have been unable to integrate an internet browser.

In relation to the missing feature, he went on to state: “We have been so focused on making Switch a superior video game platform that other features have been overlooked. As for now, it will not support the internet browser.”

This isn’t to say that the Switch will never get the internet browser in the future but at the moment, it appears that Nintendo are concentrating on the game console.

There were also rumours that Nintendo would be adding virtual reality (VR) support, but this is also a feature that if added will be done in the future.

Nintendo has one major issue that Kimishima wants to ensure is solved before they focus on anything else. He states that they are having “comfort issues” when the console is used for a long period of time. Once this is resolved we will incorporate VR.

The president also mentioned that the company is currently researching the best method of implementing VR, which is an indication that there is a great possibility that it could be introduced at a later date.

There are also talks of a potential VR headset accessory, where the headset will be used as a dock, and the Switch tablet would slot into it.

Nothing else has been mentioned about this, but if it was to be released, we are sure fans would be more than happy.
