    Picture: Nintendo Life

    With the entire rumours concerning the notorious ‘Switch Pro‘ and the eventual launch of the Switch OLED model final yr, we have hardly had an opportunity to consider Nintendo’s true subsequent era of {hardware}. For the previous yr or two, the Swap has been described on more than one event as being within the “center” of its lifecycle, suggesting there are a lot extra years for it to thrive.

    However, ought to historical past repeat itself as soon as extra, one thing new will ultimately take over the reins.

Even so, Nintendo Swap household of units will as soon as once more be the best-selling consoles in 2022 at round 21 million offered to customers, aided by the discharge of Swap OLED.

    I am not anticipating a Swap Professional in 2022. We have now a next-gen Nintendo console in our forecasts for late 2024, so I am not satisfied a ‘Professional’ mannequin goes to seem in any respect.”

    Nintendo’s usually quoted as saying that it is “all the time” engaged on new {hardware}, so we have little doubt that the corporate’s brightest minds are busy developing with new applied sciences and new methods to play.
