Nintendo has today confirmed that the Nintendo Switch smartphone application will launch on July 21st.

The application will allow gamers to arrange online gaming sessions as well as chat with them in game. Further to this, it’s clear that Nintendo will use the mobile app for specific features of certain games.

For instance, in Splatoon 2, you’ll be able to access SplatNet2 via the smartphone app. Using this, you’ll be able to see specific online play stats, gear, check out upcoming stages and more.

Using the app, you’ll be able to send invites via social media networks and messaging services which actually sounds interesting. There’s a lot of people on my social media networks that I want to play with, but I can’t keep track of who I’ve got on my Nintendo Switch friend lists, so this could actually turn out to be a really good idea.
