YouTube Now Available For Nintendo Switch

YouTube was just released for Nintendo Switch today. It features all of the features that Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have. It has the same layout.

Videos can be watched on the TV or while undocked. You can watch videos in 1080p, as well. While 60 FPS seems out of the question for now, it is still a huge improvement over YouTube compared to Nintendo 3DS and last generation consoles.

Nintendo Switch Has Reached 22.86M Sales

Earlier today, Nintendo held an investor’s meeting in Japan for 2018 FY Q2. They discussed both hardware and software sales for the Nintendo Switch. While Nintendo may not reach their additional 20 million mark, Switch still has done fairly well this quarter.

It was announced that the company has now sold 22.86 million Switch consoles which also just outsold the GameCube. Another thing, software sales have surpassed lifetime software sales for Wii U. Switch software sales are now at 111.10 million.

2018 may not have been as good as 2017 for Nintendo. However, 2019 may prove to be a brighter year with releases such as as New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Yoshi’s Craft Island, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Travis Touchdown Strikes Again: No More Heroes, and possibly Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime 4. Time will tell.


Here Is Super Mario 64 Running In 60 FPS

Video From Kaze

Someone got Super Mario 64 running at 60 FPS. Now, it is a ROM but the game still looks really good at this high frame rate. Maybe Nintendo should do another Super Mario 64 Remaster for Switch like the DS version.

The video shows various levels from the game. The graphics are still Nintendo 64 style, but the frame rate is set at 60. You should definitely give it a watch.

Super Mario 64 released on Nintendo 64 in 1996. It was one of the first 3D Mario games. In 2004, it was remastered as Super Mario 64 DS. The game came to the Wii as a Virtual Console game in 2006. Finally, it launched on Wii U in 2015 as a VC title.
