New Nintendo Switch Model Reportedly Launching “By The End Of June”
The Nintendo Switch is a pretty remarkable piece of hardware that’s made even more impressive by the monumental success its achieved in only 2 years’ time. While the console has been bolstered by monster hits like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, solid ports such as Dragon’s Dogma, and unique offerings in the like of Labo VR, Big N’s current-gen boom looks to be continuing with a new Nintendo Switch model reportedly due out in the next few months.
While there’s been no official word regarding this updated take on the console, there’s been murmurings lately regarding a cheaper iteration of the Switch, one that would feature reduced functionality as a trade-off for the lower price. It was previously speculated that this unannounced variant of the hybrid hardware could’ve gone live sometime in the summer, but according to a new report from Bloomberg, this lower-end Switch is more “likely” to launch “by the end of June.”
This window-narrowing news arrives from a duo of anonymous sources “familiar with the matter,” though little else was disclosed regarding these particular “private plans.” However, there was a tidbit regarding another new Nintendo Switch model in the works, one previously-considered to be a more powerful variant similar to the Xbox One X or PlayStation 4 Pro. It appears this powerhouse Switch may have been blown out of proportion, as these sources confirm there’s only a “modest upgrade” in mind for this upgraded hardware.
Nintendo has yet to confirm any of these details as of yet, but all does seem to point in the direction of a multi-Switch future. Several separate reports have confirmed such plans over the past few weeks, and this latest one only seems to further solidify these Switches existence. If a launch is indeed scheduled to happen by June, it likely won’t be long before Nintendo begins rolling out official details.
