Nintendo is supposedly going to release a new cheaper Nintendo Switch Console this June. The console will be a hybrid version of the Switch and will be the first new console to come after the original Nintendo Switch was released 2 years ago. It is also going to be cheaper than the original Switch, giving more affordable options to buyers.
According to a report by Bloomberg, the console will launch by the end of June. In addition, the report also claims that a new Switch model with enhanced features will also be releasing as well. This is to target avid gamers, though the specs will still not match the likes of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Growth in the current period will get a boost from the launch of a new, cheaper version of the Switch, according to two people familiar with the matter who requested anonymity to discuss private plans. The new device will likely be launched by the end of June, according to one of the people. The existing Switch will receive a modest upgrade this year, though a more powerful version is not in the works, the people said.
Last week, a report from a Japanese publication Nikkei also talked about the supposed pro version of the switch.
Nintendo is believed to be experimenting on a number of different things for the device, including usability, improved image rendering, and changes to the operating system, among other things.
So far Nintendo has not confirmed any of the rumors or the report by Bloomberg. With E3 less than a couple of months away, the company could be announcing a new console in the event. A teaser might even be on the cards before we reach E3. All we can do is wait for any such announcement by Nintendo.
