As the Switch enters its seventh year, rumors abound of a successor to the wildly successful handheld/home console hybrid. It seems that every week there’s a new rumor, whether it’s regarding a Switch 2, a Super Switch, or something else entirely. It’s a question on everyone’s mind, and recently Greg Keller of the Associated Press was able to ask Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser “When is the next Switch coming out?” in an Insider Q&A. Bowser replied that “sales are still strong, I think we still have a very, very strong lineup coming.” He added, probably unsurprisingly, that there is “nothing to announce on any future console or device, but we are still feeling very bullish about Nintendo Switch.”
Given that the Nintendo Switch recently became the third best-selling console of all time with 122.55 million units sold by the end of 2022, you can see why Nintendo is still so confident in the Switch. With the lineup of new software they have slated for the console this year, with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, Pikmin 4, and more to come by the way of expansions of already popular Switch titles – the final two waves of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s Booster Course pass and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC are on the way in 2023 – it’s no surprise that Nintendo is seemingly betting on the strength of the Switch.
