NYCC 2018: Izneo Digital Comics Reader Coming To Nintendo Switch

by James Ferguson

Gamers will soon be able to read digital comics on their Nintendo Switch thanks to Izneo. The platform already exists on the web, tablet, and mobile phones and it is coming to the latest Nintendo console in November 2018. This is an ideal platform for digital comics since a key part of the Switch is the tablet-like controller. Check out the video for how it works below:

Luc Bourcier, CEO of Izneo says:

We are proud to bring the Izneo reader to Nintendo Switch and offer the best comic books reading experience to gamers. Nintendo’s console is the perfect platform for comic book reading. From gamer to reader the gap just got a little bit smaller!

I got a chance to see the Izneo app on the Nintendo Switch in person at New York Comic Con. It’s a pretty sleek interface and the controller is tailor made for it. I really hope this is a sign of things to come as gaming platforms represent an untapped market for comics that has some huge potential. Imagine playing the new Spider-Man game and then bouncing over to read some comics featuring everyone’s favorite webhead. While we’re not quite there yet, it’s an exciting idea to think about.

The comics on Izneo can be purchased a la carte or you can sign up for an all-you-can-read model, similar to Netflix. There are currently more than 25,000 comics available on the platform with more coming soon.
