New Nintendo console is coming in ’20XX’

next new Nintendo console revealed for 20XX Switch system update

Speculation within the Nintendo community is eternal, as fans tend to throw their predictions onto social media. However, when it comes to Nintendo hardware, that’s where things get particularly interesting. Reports of a so-called “Nintendo Switch Pro” with 4K received a ton of momentum during the past year, but Nintendo ultimately revealed the Nintendo Switch OLED Model instead. Although we may have a while to hear more about what’s next for Nintendo, the recent financial report has colorfully revealed a release date of “20XX” for its new major console. Interestingly, the report neglects to mention the Wii U, as it failed to meet sales targets by a large margin.

This is what Nintendo had to say about its plans going forward: “In support of our efforts to increase the number of people who experience Nintendo IP, Nintendo plans to continue to expand its business around the core concept of creating unique integrated hardware-software products.”

It’s safe to assume that we will likely see a successor to the Nintendo Switch that retains the hybrid concept, but we will have to wait until 20XX to find out, which is coincidentally exactly when we can expect Mega Man to start defending the world.
