Forums - Nintendo Discussion - When do you think they'll announces Switch Pro?

Probably early next year. Nintendo's console cycle periods usually run for 5 years (the GC and Wii life cycle were 5 years and Wii U was 4 years) so I'm expecting their next console to be the switch successor, not an upgrade version of the switch.

The Switch is on it's way to increase sales over 2020 in 2021 with keeping up with the momentum of last year and having a much beefier late year season than last year. Usually the next gen is started at least 2 years after the peak of the previous gen hardware. Nobody ever has brought the next gen amidst the peak of the last hardware.

As Switch seems to be able to peak this year without a Pro, I think early next year might be a good time to push new sales and start the second half of Switch's lifecycle.

If it ever exists, I agree with after the holidays, early next year. Sidenote, I just knew nothing would be announced before at at this E3, I just knew it.



I'm thinking the Switch Pro will be more like a GameBoy Color or a DSi than the same console with higher resolution, so they'll probably hold out a bit longer. And it's not impossible that by late 2022 or 2023 there will be already some exclusive Switch Pro games and/or features.



 

 

 

 

 

I still believe there won't be.
We will wait a bit more to have a real announcement for a new gen machine.
Announcement in 2022 for a release in 2023, of the NINTH gen console of Nintendo.

A lot!

On a serious note, I think it'll be sometime next year. The Switch is selling out right now regardless, so they might want to introduce the new model when the sales slow down a little to help keeping the sales high.



I meant 3rd Quarter of the year.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.
