Nintendo Switch

According to Wall Street Journal Japan, Nintendo is planning to launch a newer version of Nintendo Switch console next year. This news comes from them on the basis of some suppliers and other sources who have direct knowledge of the plan.

There has been no official word from Nintendo on this so far but Wall Street Journal Japan’s sources are citing that there is active development and discussion going on right now, as to how the new console will be developed.

Currently the new hardware, software functions and their costs are under consideration. The most important aspect, which is in consideration, is to update the system’s display, which is currently a very low end LCD. Improving the system’s LCD will make the system even more appealing since it works as a handheld console as well. Nintendo wants the screen to be brighter, thinner and more energy efficient.

Nintendo Switch was launched back in 2017, which is not that long ago and now Nintendo is planning to bring a newer version into the mix. Switch has outsold its competition ever since launch even though when both Xbox One and PS4 are more powerful than Switch.

Switch’s main selling points are portability, huge library of video games and many other innovative ways to play a game. It is the favorite family console of the current generation with a huge game library and some really good games in the pipeline for this fall season.

If everything goes as planned, the new Nintendo Switch will be launched in second half of 2019. One of the major reasons for a new version of console is to make sure that the sales are higher and with new features, people will indeed go for a much better and more capable handheld model.

As the new console might also be more powerful than the current generation Switch, we do not know if any special games will be launched for the new console or will all games follow a standard like and have improved visuals for the powerful console variant such as Xbox One X and PS4 Pro.

Currently, we are awaiting an official word on this news. We will keep you updated on any news on this whenever Nintendo gives an official statement so keep checking back for more.
