“Modest upgrade” also planned for main console
Business news website Bloomberg reported on Wednesday that according to its sources (who wished to remain anonymous), Nintendo will launch a “cheaper” version of its Switch gaming console by the end of June, with a “modest upgrade” also planned for the console. Bloomberg also noted that its sources claimed that Nintendo does not have any plans to release a more “powerful” version of the console.
Japanese financial newspaper Nikkei reported in February that Nintendo was planning to release a smaller version of the Switch as early as this year, with the aim of increasing the console’s user base, emphasizing portability with its reduced size, and reducing the cost by cutting some features of the console.
The Nintendo Switch console has sold 32.27 million units worldwide as of December 31.
