This.

Maybe they could make a smaller version of the Switch with longer battery life, but a new dedicated handhled is not needed.

You make a valid point for the kid who made Scott Tennorman eat his parents.



I am really happy with the Switch, I believe Nintendo has something here. They can dominate both markets with one simple device. All they need to do is put 100% of there focus and games on it. They have the IPs and Studios that Sony and Xbox don't have to push Hybrid devices into market leading territory.

Nintendo can easily create a 3DS successor and it will do well but it also move focus and games away from the Switch basically making the 3DS successor cutting the Switches lunch.



If the Switch Lite (Only Handheld version) is the rumor for 2019. Then it will fix this issue.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Is it easy to shrink a node. Something like Tegra X1 20 nm to Tegra X1 10 or so nm?

if yes I believe we'll see a mini switch as the next handheld

No, though I would like to see a dedicated console that competes with Microsoft and Sony on a technical level.

Probably not going to happen, because Nintendo is smart and likes making a profit. Their hybrid console/handheld is actually genius and they're doing well. But I can't help be curious about what a Zelda or Mario title would look in the latest console tech seeing as how good they looked on the Switch.

The last time they competed was the Gamecube, and that had some of the best looking games of its generation (Super Mario Sunshine, Star Wars Rogue Leader, Resident Evil 4, Zelda: The Windwaker are all pretty much timeless when it comes to graphics and art). But that console didn't do well commercially so I don't think Nintendo will go against their niche.



The Switch is just one year old, what would they do with another handheld?
