Nintendo has confirmed in their investor’s briefing released today that they will continue to offer a gaming system that will have unique integrated hardware-software.
In their investor’s briefing, the company has talked about their future plans while also confirming that they will release a successor to the Nintendo Switch. While they didn’t exactly share a release window for their console, they will release an integrated hardware-software next-gen gaming system.
“In the future, Nintendo still plans to expand its business around the creation of unique integrated hardware-software products,” reads a statement from the Nintendo President in the investor’s briefing.
There are rumors of a next-generation version of the Switch which will be 4K-ready and launch in 2021, but there hasn’t been any official acknowledgment of such a system as of yet. This is the first time the company has talked about releasing a Switch successor.
The company plans to create unique hardware for their next console as well. This usually involves a certain feature that is not present in their competitor’s hardware like the hybrid nature of the Switch, the 3D support on 3DS, dual-screen on DS, and so on.
The company also plans to expand its Nintendo account users through software and hardware. This can be used on mobile and integrated Nintendo hardware like the Switch or 3DS.
