Will Nintendo release a successor to their Switch console before the end of 2023?
Jan 1, 2024
Sony and Microsoft have released their next-gen consoles already, the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S, as of 2020. However, Nintendo so far has been continuing to pour their efforts into the Nintendo Switch, which was released in 2017. Rumours abound of a "Switch Pro" or even a brand new console, but so far have only been speculative. When will Nintendo release it? Fine print: In order to count as a successor to the Switch, this console must be clearly intended as the next major console in Nintendo's lineup. It must have the ability to have interchangeable games in it, such as via download and/or physical game cartridges or disks. Nintendo and/or third-party developers must be developing and/or planning to release new games for the console. A "Switch Pro" that can play Switch games will also be considered a resolution to this question, if it has enhanced processing power or additional features that mean that certain games can only be played on the new hardware, or have enhanced features when played on the new hardware.
