Nintendo Switch 2 is expected to launch in Q1 2025

According to reports from Eurogamer and VGC, the provisional name of the next gaming device from Nintendo Switch is Nintendo Switch 2. Nintendo Switch 2 will be launched in the first quarter of 2025, before entering Nintendo’s fiscal year 2025, starting from April 2025. Nintendo has confirmed that they will continue to support the current Nintendo Switch until at least March 2025, but also said that they are always researching and developing new products.

Nintendo Switch is a breakthrough gaming device from Nintendo, with sales exceeding 100 million units worldwide since its launch in 2017. Nintendo Switch is a versatile device, which can be used as a handheld or a console, allowing users to enjoy their favorite games anywhere and anytime. However, after nearly seven years of existence, Nintendo Switch has become outdated compared to its rivals such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, both in terms of graphics and performance. Therefore, many fans are looking forward to the launch of Nintendo Switch 2, the new generation gaming device from Nintendo.


Some of the notable upgrades that Nintendo Switch 2 will have compared to the current Nintendo Switch are OLED screen, 4K resolution and faster processing. The OLED screen will provide higher image quality, better brightness and lower power consumption than the LCD screen. The 4K resolution will allow users to view games with higher sharpness when connected to a large screen. Faster processing will help games run smoother and support more difficult games. In addition, Nintendo Switch 2 may also have more storage capacity, improved Joy-Cons, fast charging and better Bluetooth support.

One of the features that may be available in Nintendo Switch 2 is backward compatibility with the physical and digital games of the current Nintendo Switch. This will help users save costs and not miss their favorite games. Some of Nintendo’s popular games such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons may be updated to match the power of Nintendo Switch 2. Moreover, Nintendo Switch 2 may also have many new games exclusive to it, attracting more players.

It is a product that many fans of Nintendo and the gaming industry are interested in. If Nintendo Switch 2 can meet the improvements and features that users expect, it will be a gaming device worth buying and playing in 2025 and beyond.
