Nintendo’s current Switch model remains a solid seller. However, many are wondering when a brand new model of the popular system would finally hit the market. This falls in line with a brand new report by Bloomberg, it’s finally planning to happen this fall. The report states that Nintendo plans to start the assembly of a new Switch as soon as July. Therefore the release would follow in September or October. This new model also will likely cost more than the first $299 price point. Once released will phase out the standard Switch, though the $199 Switch Lite will still be offered. As for timing, it might be announced before E3, which starts June 12th.

The reason for that might be to permit publishers to reveal their upcoming games for the new system at E3. Allowing them to take advantage of the buzz. A Nintendo spokesman declined to comment. The new Switch model will carry a 7-inch Samsung OLED display and an upgraded graphics processor to allow for 4K output to a TV

Assemblers could start shipping the new model in July. Which consistent with sources, the production is scheduled to peak within the October to December quarter. Though it remains to be seen how semiconductor shortages, which have affected the PS5, Xbox Series X, and original Switch, will affect the new Switch model.

It’s actually quite surprising that it has been 4 years without an upgrade to the core system. With the system still selling well and Nintendo admitting that it hasn’t been ready to get as many Switch’s to market. As it wanted thanks to shortages, the new model should have no issue hitting the ground running.

That’s especially if true if the E3 rollout is as reported, as Nintendo will build buzz with the new model announcement and publishers can ride that momentum with a flurry of announcements at E3’s virtual convention this year. it’ll also help keep the momentum the Switch has enjoyed at the same time as the PS5 and Xbox Series X buzz continues to rise.

We’ll need to wait and see if this pans out, but if so it might seem this might be another Platonic year for Nintendo fans.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
