Analysts predict the release date and price for Nintendo Switch 2 as announced.
Over two years after Sony and Microsoft unveiled their current-gen consoles, fans of Nintendo systems have been anticipating when its next-generation system will arrive – possibly this year, according to an analyst’s prediction of Nintendo Switch 2.
Rumours regarding the Nintendo Switch 2 have swirled for quite some time now, though Nintendo has yet to reveal when or if its next console may arrive officially. Although analysts speculate it could arrive as early as this year, one has provided evidence supporting such speculation about price and release date estimates for Nintendo’s next-gen console.
Nintendo first unveiled its Switch console in 2017, so roughly six years will have gone by the time of any possible second-generation model’s arrival. Since then, many great titles such as Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Super Mario RPG remake have graced Nintendo fans’ gaming devices, thus leading some Nintendo enthusiasts to believe it may be time for Nintendo to unleash its next-gen system.
Kantan Games analyst Dr Serkan Toto believes the Nintendo Switch 2 will arrive sometime this year at an estimated price point of $400, as reported by GamesIndustry.biz. If this holds based on the current console price, it could mean PS350-PS380 in the UK market compared to its initial launch,h costing just $299.99 US/PS279.99 UK respectively.
Dr Serkan Toto also stated that Nintendo might release multiple versions of the Switch Pro console at some point if its expected launch in 2024 is anything to go by. That said, Nintendo may decide otherwise; multiple consoles of any given model might well come out!
At this stage, it would be wise to treat reports about a second Nintendo Switch with caution until proven otherwise; hopefully, we should receive official confirmation within months either way.
