Nintendo won’t release a new switch this year – channelNews

Those who have been eagerly awaiting the ‘Nintendo Switch Pro’ or any other new device from the Japanese gaming giant are poised to wait even longer, as it appears that Nintendo won’t release new hardware until March 2023.

according to Nikki In the report, Nintendo won’t be focusing on releasing a new device, it’s just focusing on making enough of the existing Nintendo Switch, Switch Lite, and Switch OLED.

Global chip shortages and supply chain issues have caused problems for Nintendo, whose sales are down 23% this quarter compared to the same period last year. “Device production has been affected by factors such as the global shortage of semiconductor components, which has led to lower device shipments,” the company said in its earnings report.

The end of the year period is usually when companies like Nintendo start stockpiling devices to prepare for a busy period of Christmas sales. However, as Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa said Nikkithis is not possible.

“Usually, we stockpile inventory in the summer in preparation for the year-end sales season, which has peaked. This summer, we are not able to produce as much as usual.”

The Nintendo Switch was first released in 2017 and has sold over 100 million units over its lifetime. Despite the current issues, Nintendo is set to sell 21 million units this year.

A new, more powerful 4K-compatible Switch has been on the minds of Nintendo fans for some time, but it looks like we won’t hear about it until March next year at the earliest.
