The Wall Street Journal Japan reported a few days ago, that gaming giant Nintendo, is planning to update the Switch with a new version, sometime in the second half of 2019.
The report was able to obtain this information via several hardware suppliers and anonymous sources that are apparently involved in Switch’s new version. Sources revealed that the new Switch is part of Nintendo’s grand plan to maintain the momentum of the hybrid console, and maintain high profits. The new Switch will sport a higher-quality screen and other hardware improvements, but currently, specific changes are still unknown.
Ever since the Switch was released back in 2017, the hybrid console has been a hot item in the gaming industry, with multiple Switch titles taking top spots in gaming charts. Several third-party developers that are not usually publishing games on Nintendo’s systems have changed course and explored every single possibility to piggyback on the hardware’s success and growing player base.
Given that the Switch would be more than two years old by the second half of 2019, this report is not that far off. Of course, given that Nintendo did not comment on the report of the Journal, it is best to treat this information with a grain of salt. What features would you like to see on a new version of Switch?
