The Nintendo Switch is barely a month old, so people are thirsting for new games to play on their new console. Once you grow tired of Breath Of The Wild, you’ll run out of things to play. Some games are scheduled to release later in the year, but what else could you do during these Nintendo droughts? Rainway is an option of the future. But what is it? Rainway is an application in the development that will allow users to stream PC games to their Nintendo Switch. According to their official website

Pain-free setup
