Nintendo could launch two new Switch models this summer, report says

Report: Nintendo Is Releasing Two New Switch Models

It's uncertain whether there will be exclusive games similar to the New Nintendo 3DS.

Launched in 2017, the Switch is already one of Nintendo's most successful products and has sold over 32 million units in just two years. However, there have also been some more expensive and powerful mid-cycle consoles like the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

"We have made no announcements and we do not comment on rumour and speculation". For one, the WSJ is an established media outlet and a trusted source of news - including scoops like this one. The outlet's sources did say, however, that the company will cut vibration from the cheaper model to keep costs down. The report doesn't include any mention of price points for either console. The Switch is now powered by Nvidia's four-year-old Tegra X1 processor, so there is definitely room for improvement there. "Sources close to Nintendo" confirmed that the information about the new Switch models aligned with what they'd heard and said "Nintendo is hoping to cater to the same two audiences it eventually evolved 3DS to serve with 2DS and New 3DS XL", according to Eurogamer.

The Packers won that game but lost in Week 15 at Chicago, where the Bears clinched the NFC North title. Chicago finished the year with a 12-4 mark, while the Pack went 6-9-1.

Numerous rumors have pointed to Nintendo's intention to launch a revamped Switch hardware variant as the console enters its crucial third year. At the time, there was only talk about a single revision, and it was unclear exactly what form it would take. One or both consoles will likely have a new LCD from Sharp instead of the current JDI screens.

Either way, if you've been considering buying a Switch, you might wanna hold off for a few months. The "budget" model, which is apparently going to be a portable only model, will sport a sturdier design to be kid-proof, and position it on the market as a successor to the 3DS. Set your expectations accordingly, as the 4K Switch is not coming this summer, but with a slate of massive first-party titles set to hit in the coming months (Pokemon Sword and Shield, Animal Crossing, Link's Awakening), Nintendo wants to cast its net far and wide.
