The online features for Nintendo Switch are being implemented in a unique way, judging by Reggie Fils-Amie‘s remarks in a new interview with GameSpot. He was asked how smartphones will tie into the Nintendo Switch. Reggie’s response was that “the smart phone app that we’re creating, that will be part of our online service, we believe is going to be a very compelling part of the overall proposition because that’s how you’ll voice chat, that’s how you’ll do your matchmaking, and create your lobby. We also think it’s a very elegant solution because if you’ve taken your switch on the go, you’ve put yourself in a hotspot, you’re looking at get a quick match of Mario Kart in, to whip out some sort of bulky, gamer headset is a bit of a challenge. So we think we’ve got an elegant solution. That’s a very specific answer to your question”. Reggie didn’t say which features, if any, won’t require the app, but we’ll probably find out about that in the near future.
