In March, Nintendo Switch will be on the market for two years. With advances in technology to be as fast as they are, and with the demand for larger and better gaming experiences that are growing at a similar rate, watching console revisions of the environment through the system of life has almost become guaranteed in recent years.
Of course, it is impossible to know for sure whether or not Nintendo plans to issue revised edition of Switch in the near future; we certainly expect to see something in the next year or two, but that will be pure speculation on our part. But we are not alone in these predictions, although, as players, analysts seem to think the same, albeit with much more lively claims.
Speaking about GamesIndustry.biz, Ph.D. Serkan Toto, CEO of Kantan Games, and Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pahter, shared what they think Nintendo will do in 2019. Toto expects to see models "Pro" and "Lite" on the system (or at least a reduction in price), while Pachter expects to see an audit that completely interrupts the switching nature of the console.
Dr. Serkan Toto: Switch Pro and Lite – "While 2019 Switch Pro has already been announced to be in development by the Wall Street Journal, I also think Nintendo will offer" Switch Lite "(or just keep the current version at a lower price) to cover the bottom end of the spectrum and offset sinking 3DS sales. "
Michael Pachter: Ninit will launch the fully manual version of the switch to $ 199. "I expect the device to have the same screen, but with Joy Cons built into the body and no docking station. Because it can not be" shifted "from the handheld to the console, it's hard to guess what they call it, but let's assume Game Boy ( jokes). "
Dr. Serkan Toto also believes that Switch will benefit from "at least one new mega-franchise game owned by EA, Activision or Take-Two" as part of his expectations that the console will see "much more games "from third-party developers this year.
