Disney Plus Nintendo Switch: Is Disney+ coming to Nintendo Switch? Release date latest

Disney Plus had its big UK launch this week, with the Mickey Mouse studio's answer to Netflix and Amazon Prime available to tune into now. The subscription service brings Disney classics, Pixar gems, Marvel and Star Wars movies and National Geographic content all under one roof. Disney+ has a UK price of £5.99 per month or £59.99 per year which offers access to a tonne of content - including over 600 Simpsons episodes.

On day one PS4 and Xbox One gamers were able to download a dedicated Disney Plus app for their consoles.

But, at launch, there was no Disney+ app available for the Nintendo Switch.

So, the question remains - will Disney Plus be launching on the Nintendo Switch?

Read on to find out as Express.co.uk has rounded up all you need to know about Disney Plus on the Nintendo Switch...


Disney+ and the Nintendo Switch seem like a perfect fit.

There will be tonnes of younger gamers using the Switch who would be the prime audience for Disney Plus.

However, as of yet a Disney Plus Nintendo Switch release date hasn't been confirmed.

But it seems highly likely that Disney Plus will be launching on the Nintendo Switch in the future.

As revealed in a post by Nintendo Life, official artwork for Disney Plus previously showed the streaming service working on the Switch.

The Switch appeared alongside the PS4 and Xbox One in artwork that featured in an investors briefing ahead of the Disney Plus launch.

Which is great news for Nintendo Switch fans as it all-but confirms Disney+ will be appearing on the platform.

The question is when, as from a technical point of view Disney Plus could launch on the Nintendo Switch at any moment.

Hopefully by the end of 2020 a dedicated Disney+ app will have launched on the Nintendo Switch, but when it could drop remains to be seen.

The only issue fans may need to worry about is the Switch currently offers very few streaming apps.

While the PS4 has dedicated Crunchyroll, Netflix, Amazon Prime, iPlayer and All4 apps - to name but a few - the Switch only has a few.

The only available streaming apps on the Nintendo Switch are YouTube and Hulu - with the latter a service only for those in the US.

Netflix, despite virtually being available on everything in your house bar your toaster, is not available on the Nintendo Switch still.

And this is in spite of teases since 2017 that Netflix would be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Back then Reggie Fils-Aime said: "What I would say is this: We built the Nintendo Switch to be a world-class gaming device, meaning we want you first and foremost to play games on the system and have an incredibly fun experience.

"We're talking to a range of companies about other services, companies like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon — things that will come in time.

"In our view, these are not differentiators. What differentiates us is the way you play with the Nintendo Switch and what you can play.

"And that will continue to be our focus into the future as we continue driving this platform."

Hopefully Disney Plus members won't be in for a lengthy wait for the Switch like with Netflix as the two seem like a perfect match.
