Nintendo announces InkyPen for the Switch, a subscription based comic book service


"A new way to read comics is coming", according to Nintendo. As of today, they've pulled the curtain back on InkyPen, a new subscription service focused on comic books. Though the teaser is short, it appears InkyPen will let readers pay a monthly fee in order to read from a collection of assorted comic book series. Thanks to an agreement between both companies, InkyPen is set to exclusively launch on the Nintendo Switch this November.

I've already got Marvel Unlimited (And my own personal comic server). But if they get DC and Dark horse onto this, I'll throw my money at them.
Yeah, I'm 43, so what. I actually only started reading comic books about 2 years ago, never did when I was a kid so I've a lot of catching up to do :D

We've gone from Japan-based Toy company to a Video Game company to a Comic-hosting company.
Uhm... Okay, it's good that Nintendo is expermenting with comics on the Switch...

-if e-Readers and Google Play weren't a thing.

Announce anything, but games.

As well as games... Unless you are so picky that you don't see the almost daily announcements for Switch games.

Back to topic. I can see myself using it if it it contains enough Manga.

I think they mean first party games. Sure, new Switch games are announced on a near daily basis as of late, but most are games many have never heard of. The 3rd party side of the Switch is going well, the 1st party side is kind of dry this year. At E3 they showed Mario Party, ... and an oversized trailer for Smash. Then, ANOTHER oversized trailer for Smash in the form of a direct. And then Nintendo thinks people want comic books. While that is cool for some, most people buy game consoles to play games.
