After many rumors, Nintendo has finally confirmed that the successor which we’ll call the Nintendo Switch 2 will be launched “within this fiscal year”.

Nintendo Switch 2 In the Works

The news was revealed by Nintendo President, Shuntaro Furukawa on X (formerly Twitter). In the tweet, he mentioned that it has been over nine years since the first mention of the Nintendo Switch. The handheld console from Nintendo was officially announced in 2016 though.

Since then, the company has released a more portable and more affordable Switch Lite and the more recent Switch OLED. There have been many speculations that a successor or even a ‘Pro’ version was coming, but this is the first time that the company revealed the successor.
