Rumors: Nintendo is developing a new version of the Nintendo Switch ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
The Japanese edition of the Nikkei provided information that Nintendo plans to release a more budget and smaller version of the Nintendo Switch in the next fiscal year (for the company it’s a period from April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020). It is assumed that the new version will be portable and more convenient than the current version of the Nintendo Switch.
According to Steve Bowling from Nintendo Life, the new console will be even more affordable. Bowling noted that some developers and component suppliers have already been informed about the existence of the console. The future console may be an upgraded model, which The WSJ showed last year. In any case, we can wait for the device sale already in this season.
We dare to assume that in the new version of the console you will not be able to remove the gamepad or connect the console for the game using the TV screen.
The Nikkei report also mentioned working on Nintendo Switch Online. Developers' plans include more services for players. Unfortunately, the current Nintendo online services are inferior to Microsoft and Sony. But we hope that the improvement of this direction of the company is not far off.
In addition to lowering expectations from Switch sales by 3 million, the success of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is also reflected in the financial report of Nintendo. The game has been sold over 12 million copies in just a few weeks.
