It takes time, years in fact, for a new gaming console to be developed, so even though Nintendo is seeing a remarkable success with the Switch, it’s not surprising that a next-gen switch isn’t ready yet. Many have been wondering if the company has started developing the successor to this console internally. While the company hasn’t said anything to suggest that it has started working on a Switch 2.0, people want to know. If a new report is to be believed, Nintendo isn’t planning on developing a new console just yet. Again, this isn’t surprising.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo isn’t planning a hardware revision for the Nintendo Switch at this time. Sources mentioned in the report claim that Nintendo will look to further increase Switch sales through new peripherals and improved network features right now.
Also, Nintendo is likely going to introduce new network-related features for the console later this year as well as new peripherals that will be connected via its USB Type-C port. The company’s CEO Tatsumi Kimishima has previously expressed interest in expanding the console’s cycle to more than the conventional 5-6 years too, so it will be awhile. Enjoy this version in the meantime. No hurry.
