Again, you're arguing things I never said anything about. Show me where I said they shouldn't have a plan for next gen. Of course they should. 

It's not just having a "plan", actual software development needs to start to begin pretty soon here. A 3 year dev cycle factoring in some bumps along the way, you need to have actual game development underway like this summer/fall and even that may be cutting it tight because Switch to Switch 2 is probably a generational leap whereas Wii U to Switch was basically the same tier hardware just a bit better in some respects. So you have to account developers needing a little more time to take full advantage of much better hardware than they had before. 

So for us as consumers while Switch 2 may be years away, for Nintendo it really needs to be top of mind like now. As a plan yes, but even as actual game development and staff being allocated to these projects. 

What does any of this have to do with what I said though? I don't disagree, I just said replacing Switch in 2021 would be foolishly premature.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
