Nintendo Is Not Considering A Switch Successor Or Price Cut At This Time, Says President


Despite a fact that a Switch has been offered like hotcakes as of late, indeed outselling a categorical rivals to turn a best-selling console of 2018 in a US, rumours and mumblings of a intensity new indication (or a cost cut to a existent model) have been present for some time.

Earlier this month, analysts common their beliefs that Nintendo will recover a new chronicle of a console this year, potentially even going as distant as to embankment a Joy-Con setup altogether as partial of a 100% unstable ‘Switch Mini’ system. As it turns out, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa has discharged these claims in a new talk with Japanese announcement The Sankei News.

In a interview, Furukawa was once again asked about a 20 million Switch units idea for this financial year. We’ve listened his comments about it being “ambitious” large times before, though a subsequent partial of a criticism stands out here (translation around Nintendo Everything).

Furukawa: “It is an intensely ambitious, though inestimable achievement. So, we will say this goal. Nintendo Switch is a primary sales objective, and we are not deliberation a inheritor or a cost cut during this time.”

So, not usually is a 20 million units idea still really most on, though Nintendo appears to trust that it can be reached but any changes to a stream strategy. If a console’s still offered during a gentle rate, maybe any intensity hardware revisions or cost drops can be pushed back. ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t repair it’ – and all that.

Were we awaiting to see any cost drops or new Switch models this year? What do we consider will be a initial change if and when it does eventually arrive? Share your thoughts with us below.
