How to play Hitman 3 on Switch

The first thing you'll need to do is make sure that the Cloud Streaming app is actually available where you are. The website states that "A Cloud Version of a game uses streaming technology to play the game from a server. The Cloud Version requires stable connection to high-speed internet to play. Because the game is streamed from a server, the full software is not downloaded to your Nintendo Switch console. A small download is required to launch the game. After a brief trial of the game, you can choose to purchase an Access Pass through the game launcher in order to continue playing."

If it is, you should be able to check it all by visiting the online webpage or searching for it on the eShop.

Assuming it's available, it should be able to lead you through all of the instructions you need to be able to actually play the game and use this technology.

It's worth noting that this is all somewhat estimations at present because there's currently no release date for it.

As it stands, the only other game that's available via this service is Control.

That isn't the case all over the world though, and it seems as though Nintendo is merely flirting with the whole concept as it stands.

Hopefully it'll get rolled out everywhere at some point, but we'll just have to be patient.
