Shuntaro Furukawathe president of Nintendo, reiterated for the umpteenth time that Nintendo Switch it’s at half of its life cycle and who is here to stay. So let’s not expect Nintendo Switch 2 anytime soon.
Furukawa returned to the topic during a question and answer session held on the occasion of Nintendo’s Corporate Management Policy Briefing. Evidently the topic interests everyone a bit, given that the hybrid console represents an anomaly in the video game market. However, Nintedo Switch is not touched:
Five years have passed since the launch of the Nintendo Switch and the total hardware sell-through has exceeded 90 million units. The system is in the middle of its life cycle. The launch of the Nintendo Switch OLED has helped keep sales high and we are now offering customers three Nintendo Switch models, suited to their play and lifestyle, and a wide variety of software. With these assumptions, we believe we have laid the foundation for growth and overcoming what was previously considered the normal lifecycle for hardware.
It is easy to imagine that Nintendo will further expand the Nintendo Switch offer in the coming years, perhaps with new models or updates to existing ones.
