A few days ago, we first started to hear that a YouTube app for Switch could be launching today. As it turns out, the app has indeed been released.

Head on over to the eShop to download YouTube on Switch for free. The download takes up 89.0MB of space.

Here are a few screenshots of the app:

Switch is just a few months away from its second anniversary. Some system owners have been clamoring for video apps since its release, but there haven’t been too many options. Hulu came to Switch last November, but offerings since then have been few and far between.

The good news is that, next week, Switch might be receiving a major video app. Though the page is currently inaccessible, Nintendo’s website indicates that YouTube is launching on the eShop very soon.

Following changes made to YouTube in January, Nintendo has laid out how these changes will reshape the Nintendo Creators Program (NCP) in an email sent out to NCP members. Specifically, eligibility requirements have been reworked. Current channels involved with NCP who do not meet the new requirements will be deactivated from the program. See the updates in full below:

YouTube has provided an official listing of the most-viewed games from E3 2017. Super Mario Odyssey made the list, taking the sixth spot.

Here’s the full results:

As far as trailers go specifically, Super Mario Odyssey was second with 5.5 million views. Nintendo’s video is now almost at nearly nine million views. YouTube says the game’s placement is “impressive” given how it was one of the last games shown at E3.

Support for the YouTube app on Wii is ending in the near future. An official notice states that after June 30, users will be on their own, but can still access YouTube “in many other ways.”

Frankly, it’s surprising to see that support lasted as long as it did. Nintendo has created two new consoles since the Wii after all.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s trailer from E3 2016 became the most-viewed game video on Nintendo of America’s YouTube channel a few months ago. Super Mario Odyssey has now managed to usurp it.

Minecraft: Wii U Edition was updated with the new Super Mario Mash-Up Pack this week. Enthusiastic gamers have since started to upload clips to YouTube, but some have encountered issues with copyright strikes.

Here’s the tweet straight from 4J:
