Nintendo Developer Portal Allegedly Updated To Support Switch Successor

Nintendo has allegedly updated its developer portal to incorporate support for its next generation hardware, the Switch successor.

According to leaker NWPlayer123 (the tweet has since been deleted), who has accurately leaked Nintendo related information in the past, there have been recent updates to the console maker’s developer portal that suggest that it is incorporating support for the Switch successor. Specifically, the updates pertain to the Software Development Kit (SDK) associated with the “NX 2”.

In addition, the installer/downloader tool has also been updated, suggesting that Nintendo may be preparing to reveal the “NX 2” platform to various developers. Based on the information leaked by NWPlayer123, it appears that the public unveiling of the Switch successor may be nearer than expected.

Previously, during a Q&A session, Nintendo had shared how it is planning to make a smooth transition for its existing Switch user base to its successor. Nintendo President and CEO Shuntaro Furukawa stated that the company plans on making a smooth transition for its user base from Nintendo Switch to its successor via the Nintendo Account. He mentioned that the console maker is always considering various aspects of future hardware specifications. However, he refrained from sharing any specific details in this regard.

Furukawa stated that the Nintendo Switch software is sold in a variety of formats, including packaged software, for which customers purchase a game SD card from a store, downloadable software, and download-only software. Many customers are playing downloadable software and download-only software on Nintendo Switch, and the percentage of digital sales is increasing compared to previous consoles.

Regarding the transition to the next-generation console, Furukawa stated that, in the past, hardware was the only way for the company to connect with its customers, and it had to rebuild relationships with customers when there was a new console generation. On the other hand, with Nintendo Switch, the company is now able to connect directly with many customers through the Nintendo Account. Nintendo accounts have been created by many people around the world, including those created via mobile apps and dedicated game consoles.
