Note: It turns out the original USGamer’s English translation of yesterday’s The Nikkei article wasn’t quite correct. Our report on that has been deleted and replaced by a more accurate interpretation of the article. Read on for more!
New Article: Japanese publication The Nikkei is reporting that they have heard that Nintendo’s rumoured smaller Nintendo Switch model, which is designed for portable use, will be with us this autumn. The device will be cheaper than the current Nintendo Switch system that we currently have. It will also be dockable like the current Switch model, so you can continue your video game on your TV.
The Nikkei also reports that Nintendo is currently working on a “next-generation device that is a full model change of the current hardware” so basically a Nintendo Switch 2. This will follow the less-expensive model, but there’s no clear release date for this model as of now. Nintendo is trying out a number of things on this model and the system’s development is currently in a state where “it is not clear who will lead the creation of the concept.”
