Nintendo may Release Two New Switch Models

For a lot of tech companies, releasing updated versions of hardware products has remained a trend for many years now. We’ve seen gaming giants like Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo give us several different versions of the same console, usually upgraded with a better set of specs and features. It should be no surprise that Nintendo’s latest gaming console – the Nintendo Switch – would be given the same treatment.

Despite denying rumors of a Switch variant or successor of sorts in the past few months, reports are now emerging that Nintendo may have two different hardware versions up its sleeve.

The first Switch upgrade will supposedly be a system targeted at core gamers and will have enhanced features for its intended market, but strangely enough, won’t be as powerful as the PlayStation 4 Pro or the Xbox One X.

The second model will be more of a cheaper option of sorts for the casual gamer, somewhat akin to the Nintendo 3DS line, which was originally released in 2011. This one will have some features removed in order to cut costs.

It is rumored that Nintendo may unveil the two Switch models at this year’s E3 Convention, to be held in June.

As expected, this has raised tons of speculation on how the newer models will differ both in form and function compared to the original Switch, launched in 2017. The Switch continues to be a successful system, selling more than 30 million units worldwide, thanks to a versatile set-up and an impressive list of games.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Nintendo Switch.

  • I was wondering about the release date, But since Nintendo hasn’t officially confirmed there’s a Nintendo Switch 2 in the works (the latest rumors appear sound but based on a report from The Wall Street Journal). Nintendo clearly has something to do with the switch 2, and I was wondering whether it will follow Sony and Microsoft in their footsteps, which launch hardware upgrades at strategic intervals to extend the current generation.

    • I’m pretty curious as well if Nintendo ever releases any official news on this. But given the company’s track record for surprising us every now and then with new hardware (2ds and new 2ds xl), it wouldn’t be crazy to say that they may just come out with a Switchy surprise.

  • Hello,

    I have heard about the speculations on the new Nintendo New Switch Model but I’ve not been able to hold a first class piece of information about the features, looks and design. Though I very well believe in the news and how well it’s going to enhance their relevance in the gaming industry. Thanks

  • Hi Mike, thanks for bringing the intended release of two new switch models from Nintendo to light. I can’t wait to see the new system in question. However, I don’t think there is any system that will be as powerful as PlayStation 4 Pro although there might be great features, PlayStation 4 Pro will still be the best in the nearest future.

    June is almost here, let’s keep our fingers crossed until the Electronic Entertainment Expo comes. Thanks for a wonderful update.
