No, they won't.

The Switch audience, especially in Japan, doesn't care about it being graphically competitive. It won't suffer from this any more than DS suffered from being massively less powerful than PS3/360.

Nintendo own is no problem for performance of Switch, but a big problem for third parties. FF and Resident Evil are planed to release for PS5 and won't move to Switch because Switch doesn't have enough performance for their devs. At now, Nintendo has a big market, but it is unsteady as the Wii used to be. A next challenge for more big and stable market is taking in major franchises.

Nintendo doesn't need the big AAA games to succeed, the Switch proves that already. It will get by just fine on games like Monster Hunter Rise/Stories 2, Rune Factory 5, Momotaro, Shin Megami Tensei 5, and an RE game of its own according to the guy who correctly leaked MH Rise. For mid tier Japanese devs, it doesn't make any sense to pursue high end PS5 exclusives when the console will never have as big a base there as the Switch.

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