Nintendo To Reveal Switch Successor This Fiscal Year

In a short update posted on Twitter, the President of Nintendo, Shuntaro Furukawa, stressed that the company will be revealing the successor to the Nintendo Switch during this fiscal year. It was noted that this reveal will come more than nine years after the Nintendo Switch was announced in 2015.

Almost There

The ‘Switch 2’ has been one of the most talked-about topics in gaming for several months. Countless leaks and rumours have surfaced, but so far, nothing has been set in concrete, with Nintendo playing its cards very close to its chest. The most recent rumours suggested that the console will be backwards compatible and capable of outputting a 4K resolution through an LCD screen – not an OLED screen from scratch.

Here’s what Furukawa had to say about the impending announcement on Twitter:

This is Furukawa, the president of Nintendo. We will be announcing the successor to the Switch during this fiscal year for the first time in nine years since we announced the existence of the Nintendo Switch in March 2015. We will also be holding a Nintendo Direct in June to announce the Switch software lineup for the second half of 2024, but this will not include the successor model. Please do not misunderstand.

That means that it could be March 2025 before the Nintendo Switch successor is revealed, but we doubt it’ll take that long. The upcoming Nintendo Direct that will take place in June won’t be a platform to reveal the console, though.
