The Nintendo Switch is one of the best-selling video game platforms ever. No matter what you think about Nintendo and their console, that’s a fact. However, it’s also a fact that things are going to be “winding down” as Nintendo starts to get ready for its next system. Many feel that things are “winding down” due to the “lighter” Nintendo lineup that has been announced for 2023 so far. Yes, we have heavy hitters like Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom and Pikmin 4 coming up, but it’s pretty light outside of that from here on out. But according to Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser, things might be going on longer than you think.
“As we enter the seventh year for the Nintendo Switch, sales are still strong. I think we still have a very very strong lineup coming. As Mr. Furukawa (Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa) said recently, we´re entering uncharted territory with the platform. It´s exciting to see that demand is still there. So nothing to announce on any future console or device, but we are still feeling very bullish about Nintendo Switch.”
He also enforced that he feels the Switch can deliver “for years” due to its unique style of play/freedom. He wouldn’t tease what possible software titles are coming, but he affirmed that the Switch is still a big focus for them.
