Nintendo Switch 2 Has a Potential Release Window


The guys from Nintendo managed to think outside the box when they came up with the handheld console Nintendo Switch that was released back in early 2017. The device can clearly compete with the best consoles that Sony and Microsoft have to offer, as it can make you just as willing to become a couch potato while running your favorite games.

Jokes aside, for now! Here’s one fact that many of us need to learn how to deal with: technology never stops evolving, and the gaming industry is no exception. The standards of gamers also go high as well from year to year, and it’s only a matter of time until the successor of the revolutionary Nintendo Switch console is here.

Nintendo Switch 2 could launch in late 2023

Notebookcheck has found some sources indicating that the successor of the Nintendo Switch console, whether it will be called Nintendo Switch 2 or in some other way, will launch at some point in the late part of the current year. To be more precise, a job listing for the Dune Awakening game is what triggered speculation regarding the next Nintendo console.

If we take a look back at the past, the first Nintendo Switch console was launched about four years after the releases of both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One consoles. Therefore, launching the next Nintendo gaming console three years after the PS5 and the Xbox Series X/S came out doesn’t sound like a very implausible scenario.

In the end, you know what they say that you should never count your chickens before they hatch. In our case, don’t assume that Nintendo Switch 2 will automatically be superior to its predecessor until you see it in action. Entire months need to pass after the launch itself in order to make sure that we’re indeed talking about progress or not.
