Nintendo Reportedly Planning To Release New Switch Console In 2019
Nintendo will launch a brand-new Switch model during the latter end of next year, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.
The publication says they managed to speak to 'suppliers and others with direct knowledge' who revealed Nintendo's plan is 'to maintain the sales momentum of the device'.
So, what's this new Switch got that current devices don't? The Wall Street Journal say Nintendo is still brainstorming 'what new hardware and software features to include in the upgrade'.
However, one option boasts an improved screen size as its main feature, meaning the console will be thinner, easier to travel with, and more energy efficient.
Just remember, the Switch only came out in March last year, so whether the console needs updating yet - especially when it'll include 'many features' found on current models - is a bit of a grey area.
The Nintendo Switch is first to bare the name and tech of Nintendo's latest console series, meaning they're still in a trail and error phase with the handheld device.
Similar to the Xbox One S/X and PS4 Slim/Pro, the Switch will most likely be see a hardware shift and makeover before entering a new generation - so don't expect the Switch 2.0 to launch, it'll most likely be the Switch 1.5.
Still, the Switch consoles we have play games just fine, and we can't really think of what else they need. A slimmer design would be a bonus, but is it essential? And will it be enough to persuade current and new Switch users to buy one? We'll leave that up to you to decide.
