Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa has reiterated that the Nintendo Switch is still in the middle of its lifecycle meaning that there’s many more years to come of games on the Switch and potentially new versions of the Nintendo Switch hardware. So far we have had to Nintendo Switch (2017) the Switch Lite (2019) and Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) (2021). He said that momentum is still going strong for the console which is will soon be in its sixth year on the market. Furukawa is confident that sales will continue to be strong for the console going forward over the next few years on both the software and hardware front despite the newer more powerful systems from both Sony and Microsoft.
“Switch is just in the middle of its lifecycle and the momentum going into this year is good. The Switch is ready to break a pattern of our past consoles that saw momentum weakening in their sixth year on the market and grow further.”Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa
