Nintendo Switch Has A “Few Years” Left, Says NoA President

New Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch 2 — or whatever it will be called — might not be coming as soon as many would hope. At least, that’s what Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser is suggesting.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Bowser says that though a new version of the console will eventually be released, the company still sees a future for the original Nintendo Switch.

“As Mr. Furukawa (Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa) said recently, we’re entering uncharted territory with the platform,” Bowser said. “It’s exciting to see that demand is still there. So nothing to announce on any future console or device, but we are still feeling very bullish about Nintendo Switch.

Bowser continued by saying that the belief that the Switch will remain strong is because of it being a “truly unique device”. He says that because of what the console offers in terms of ways to play makes it something that can “have a strong performance over the next few years”.

To help with that anticipated strong performance for the console are a number of upcoming major releases for the console. Releasing in 2023 alone are Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Pikmin 4, Minecraft Legends, and more. Other games that remain in development are Metroid Prime 4 as well as a new Detective Pikachu game.

With those titles, Nintendo is expecting more hardware to be moved throughout 2023 and beyond.

When do you think the Nintendo Switch 2 will finally be revealed?
