Nintendo’s President Addresses the Switch 2 Announcement


While we’ve gotten some tasty new tidbits regarding the hardware behind the Nintendo Switch’s much awaited successor, the console itself mostly remains a mystery with varying sources each giving different timeframes of a possible launch date. More recently though, it looks like Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa has finally given fans a definite schedule regarding the console’s launch.

Posting on its official X/Twitter page, Nintendo Japan shared a message from Furukawa regarding an upcoming announcement about the Switch sequel, although he clarifies that it won’t be later within the fiscal year. The full message reads:

This is Furukawa, President of Nintendo. We will make an announcement about the successor to Nintendo Switch within this fiscal year. It will have been over nine years since we announced the existence of Nintendo Switch back in March 2015. We will be holding a Nintendo Direct this June regarding the Nintendo Switch software lineup for the latter half of 2024, but please be aware that there will be no mention of the Nintendo Switch successor during that presentation.

With all that said, it’s safe to say at this point that we’ll get the full details regarding the Switch 2 (if that’s what Nintendo decides to call it) several months from now, or at least until we get more reliable leaks about the console.

A recent report from Spanish media outlet Vandal indicates that the Switch 2’s design will include a magnetic connection setup for the Joy-Cons, a rather different approach to the rail-based system that the current Switch uses. If true, this means that current Joy-Con models might not work with the upcoming console, which is also predicted to be slightly larger than the current model.
