While Corden didn’t offer any details regarding the reliability of his sources, he has often been correct with regards to the information he has shared in the past. Therefore, we’re inclined to believe that, at the very least, Nintendo may have held a behind closed doors meeting with important members of the development community in order to discuss its next console’s hardware specs, development kits, and other technical details.

Previously, multiple sources had indicated that the Nintendo Switch successor would receive an official announcement in the Summer of 2023. During a recent episode of Last of the Nintendogs, host Jeff Grubb, who is known for his connections in the video game industry, had mentioned that he heard there would be some sort of announcement regarding the Nintendo Switch successor in the second half of 2023, during the Summer period.

YouTuber Nate the Hate had also shared similar details regarding the announcement of the Nintendo Switch 2 in his recent podcast. According to him, the announcement timing for the next console will happen after Nintendo’s current Fiscal Year, which ends on March 31, 2024. This is in line with what Grubb had said regarding an announcement in the Summer period. The console maker likely has a Nintendo Direct lined up for the Switch successor reveal sometime between July and September. Additionally, Nate had shared some details regarding the console’s launch and specs. As per what he had heard, the Nintendo Switch 2 is set for launch in late 2024. He claimed to have heard from multiple developers that they knew about devkits.
