Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo president says a Switch successor/price cut not currently being considered

Could you tell us how your goal is going for the Switch to sell 20 million units within the [fiscal] year?

Furukawa: It is an extremely ambitious, but worthwhile achievement. So, we will maintain this goal. Nintendo Switch is our primary sales objective, and we are not considering a successor or a price cut at this time.

Interesting thing he seem to have blurted out unprovoked. but it does tell us no price cut at least in the foreseeable future.

If they said yes to price cut maybe it will negatively impact its current sales?

Click the link, as far as the translation says, they never mentioned price cuts or a successor. He said that unprovoked it seems. So why mentioned it at all if its not true.

As if an interview is the place to announce such things anyway...



outright admitting that they arent working on new hardware is a bad sign. it takes years to develop a console, and the PS5 and next Xbox could very well launch next year. if that happens, game devs arent going to care about the bottom line, the Switch is going to be left in the dust.

Or maybe they're ... you know, hiding information from us ? It's not like they would lay out their future plans in a simple interview.

Usually Nintendo moves on to R&D for the next console once the current/new console releases. Of course, Nintendo is not gonna disclose anything at this time. Even then, they probably do not want to cause a stir within the industry while the Switch is on a tear and just about to hit its Edit:second birthday.

Hit its third birthday??? It hasn't even hit it's second birthday!

Well they probably are already considering a price cut for late 2019 (unless they make a revision that starts at $250, then there will be no price cut, maybe at most some more bundles), but it serves them nothing to say that there will be one now.

You’re right.
