A NEW report has revealed what people think the release date of the next Nintendo console is.
Dubbed the Switch 2 by fans, we’ve been waiting for a new Nintendo system for years.
Originally released in 2017, the Switch is now reaching the end of its life cycle after almost seven years.
We were expecting to announce a new console by then, but Nintendo hasn’t let their cards down.
However, a new report from VGC seems closer than ever to the truth about the next-gen Nintendo console.
It appears that the console will function like the Switch, as it has both TV and portable modes.
Like its predecessor, the Switch 2 is expected to also feature a cartridge slot and be able to play physical games.
As far as specs go, it will reportedly come with all the usual upgrades like increased storage capacity and better performance.
Nintendo’s Switch has been incredibly successful and continues to sell well well into its life cycle.
This is probably why the company has been reluctant to announce a successor, although it will eventually have to.
There was no mention of backwards compatibility for the next console, although Nintendo is hoping to move some of the Switch fanbase over to the next console.
Dev kits are apparently already with important developers so that they can work on the next generation of games.
With that timeline, we can expect the Switch’s successor to launch sometime in late 2024.
It will likely come out in time for the holidays to boost sales.
