Nintendo says it has no plans to release a new iteration of the Switch this year.
Furukawa didn’t elaborate on how the company would do that, but he’s no doubt referring to the base Switch model — which was updated with improved battery life in August — and the dock-less, more affordable Switch Lite that released in September.
Nonetheless, there have been long-lasting rumours that Nintendo is developing a ‘Switch Pro’ that offers greater power, among other improvements. In March 2019, The Wall Street Journal reported that Nintendo was working on two Switch models — the Lite and the Pro. Of course, the Lite ended up happening, although the summer release date mentioned by the WSJ was not met.
As a result, it’s mostly unclear what Nintendo’s hardware-related plans are for the year. So far, all that’s been revealed is an Animal Crossing: New Horizons-themed Switch that will launch in Canada in March.
