Multiple revisions of the Switch are replacing the 3DS.

Already, quite a few people choose the current Nintendo Switch over their own 3DS to take on the go.

Here are some ideas:

I would love either the Switch Mini or the Switch SP from that mock-up, both are pocket sized. Between the two, SP seems like the more likely course for Nintendo to take, the clamshell design helps to protect the screen from scratches while it's in your pocket, and it would allow them to keep the detachable joycons and tv dock, while the Mini design wouldn't. Though if I was them, I'd make the screen on the SP a bit smaller, and build some recessed areas into the bezel, so they can have proper analog sticks instead of circle pads.

As some have said, Switch.

However, I would like a Switch Home or Pro where it's a dedicated home console only. Tegra X3 based, all games run 1080p60.

That way, Switch platform is both successor to 3DS (tablet console, and of course doubles as home console) and WiiU (home box).

I call mine the Nintendo Switch.

Not sure why the thread didn't just end with this post.  It's the most accurate and obvious answer to the proposition by the OP.

The OP assumes there doesn't need to be a successor.  Personally, I don't play a 3DS or want one.  I owned a DS and barely played it.  I've just never been that much of a portable player.  I was just curious what the 3DS owners thought.  Are they happy with the Switch being the successor (they seem to be!) or are there things they would want Nintendo to implement that aren't in the Switch or the current 3DS.  I've loved the mockups of future iterations of the Switch in here.  I think it also makes sense going forward for them to just make more portable revisions of the Switch, especially for their software output.  It would seem as the Switch is the end of a disk-based experiment for Nintendo, so to is it the end of their dedication to a two screen platform.



This one looks cool.

As a 3DS and Wii U owner I am very happy with the Switch being the successor for both.  The tech has been available for Nintendo to combine their handheld and console offerings for a while now and it is great to see them finally doing so.  I know Nintendo has gone out of their way to state that the Switch isn't the successor to the 3DS, but I feel like that is more just because there technically won't be a successor to it.

Just because the current model of Switch is a hybrid, doesn't mean they all have to be.

XX = dedicated handheld, XY = Switch undocked, YX = Switch docked, YY = dedicated home console Switch. It's no different than smartphones(XX), tablets(XY), laptops(YX), desktops(YY).

A dedicated home console Switch(YY), assuming it's more powerful, could get hybridised next gen for the Switch 2 to keep the cycle going.
