Dr. Serkan Toto, CEO of Tokyo-based game industry consultancy Kantan Games, predicts that Nintendo’s Switch successor will launch this year and will likely be an iteration of the current hardware design, rather than a revolution.
Development kits for Nintendo’s next-generation console are reportedly in the hands of developers. The console could launch at $400, $100 higher than the original Switch, and its games could adopt the $70 pricing of PS5 and Xbox Series X.
According to industry consultants, Nintendo’s next console will again have portable functionality, similar to the current Switch.
The next system is expected to be an iteration rather than a revolution. Nintendo might add some bells and whistles to the device, but it will be similar to the current Switch.
Despite strong performance for a console entering its seventh year on the market, Switch hardware sales are clearly in decline, especially in major markets outside of Japan. In Nintendo’s last fiscal year, Switch sales declined by 22% compared to the previous year.
As Nintendo prepares to launch its Switch successor, fans and industry analysts alike are eagerly awaiting more details.
