President Of Nintendo Confirms Switch 2 Will Be Announced This Year

Finally, Nintendo has officially announced that a Switch successor is in the works. The confirmation follows years of speculation regarding possible updates to the original Switch and Switch OLED handheld systems, both of which were released years ago. Nintendo's president has said the company will make an official announcement regarding the new system within this fiscal year, though no specific release date has been given.

Additionally, Nintendo has announced that a live showcase is scheduled for June, but that it will not include any hardware updates. According to rumors, the Switch 2 is expected to debut before March 2025. Speculations suggest that the device will have a larger screen, higher resolution, and an upgraded processor.

Previous reports indicated that the release of the Nintendo Switch 2 has been delayed until the first quarter of 2025. Typically, such systems target holiday seasons, which means the Switch will miss out on a key sales period. Nevertheless, Nintendo is stockpiling the console for its launch and giving first-party game developers plenty of time to prepare for release.

The Switch 2 is rumored to be powered by an NVIDIA Tegra T239 processor with six times more CUDA cores than the current NVIDIA X1 SoC. The current SoC is capable of running AAA titles like The Witcher 3, Doom, or No Man's Sky. However, the new SoC will introduce DLSS support, providing performance gains that only increased cores can achieve.
