Miyamoto continues: “Nevertheless, Nintendo’s strength lies in creating new entertainment. So when we release new hardware in the future, we plan to continue offering new and unique gameplay that isn’t possible on existing hardware.” or offers a platform that stands out noticeably from the switch.
When the official unveiling of the Switch successor can be expected is still in the stars. A few weeks ago, Nintendo pointed out that the switch was still “in the middle of its life cycle”, but due to the now outdated hardware of the console released in March 2017, calls for a successor have become increasingly loud.
