Nintendo CEO Shuntaro Furukawa has stated that there are “no plans” to release a new Switch model in 2020 in the company’s recent financial results briefing. Here’s the official excerpt from the briefing:
Regarding Nintendo Switch, we believe that it is important to continue to communicate the appeal of both Nintendo Switch systems and expand the installed base. Please note
that we have no plans to launch a new Nintendo Switch model during 2020.
But as was revealed today in a separate announcement, a special edition Nintendo Switch with an Animal Crossing: New Horizons design will launch in Japan on March 20 on
the same day as the game’s release.
However, Nintendo is planning to bolster the Switch with even more games in 2020. They’re currently developing many new Switch games alongside already announced games. The briefing is available in full here. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news!
