Nintendo to Release Next-Gen Console in 2024

In exciting news for gamers, a new report suggests that Nintendo is gearing up to release its next-generation console in the second half of 2024. According to insider sources, development kits for this mysterious console have already been distributed to partner studios. Nintendo seems to be taking their time with this release, aiming to ensure a sufficient stock of consoles is available at launch.

Rumor has it that this next-gen console will be portable, just like the beloved Nintendo Switch. To keep the costs down, Nintendo has opted for an LCD screen instead of an OLED one. And get this, they’ve even included a cartridge slot for physical game lovers! But wait, what about backwards compatibility with Nintendo Switch games? That crucial detail remains a mystery for now.

Nintendo has been rather tight-lipped about any official announcements, keeping fans on the edge of their seats. In May, the company’s president, Shuntaro Furukawa, mentioned that the prospective successor to the Switch wouldn’t arrive until at least April 2024. He assured investors that Nintendo wasn’t planning any new hardware for the financial year ending on March 31, 2024.

Interestingly, despite a decline in Switch sales, Nintendo isn’t in a hurry to rush out a new console. The Switch still managed to sell close to 18 million units in the last financial year, even though it was slightly down from previous years. Furukawa acknowledges that sustaining sales momentum in the Switch’s seventh year will be challenging. Nonetheless, Nintendo aims to sell 15 million units this year, even if it’s a bit of a stretch. The company is banking on the holiday season to boost demand and achieve their goal.

Now, let’s talk about the juicy rumors that have been swirling around for years. Speculations suggest that the new Nintendo console will have graphics comparable to the PlayStation 4 and its Pro model. Imagine the possibilities! However, until Nintendo reveals official information, we can only dream of what this next gaming experience will entail.

So, mark your calendars, folks! It seems like Nintendo is cooking up something fantastic for us to enjoy in 2024. Keep an eye out for more updates, and in the meantime, happy gaming!
