But has Nintendo now changed the plans associated with the launch? Shouldn’t the Nintendo Switch 2 still be a thing of the future?
Nintendo Switch 2 Reveal Still in 2024?

The outcry for better hardware is nevertheless very big in the Nintendo community. The games could look better, which is especially noticeable in the TV mode.
Where does that leave the Super Switch?

If that’s the case, Nintendo may be preparing everything in the background for the announcement, which could come sooner than later.

When will the Nintendo Switch 2 be released?
If the Nintendo Switch 2 is announced, it won’t be long before it finally appears. When the first Switch was announced, it took around half a year for more details about the console to be shared, after which it finally appeared.
Maybe we’ll get lucky and the new console will still be unveiled in 2023. Then, more info in mid-2024 would be conceivable. Then we should be able to expect a launch in the second half of the year in 2024. We are curious.
In any case, there is no stop for the Nintendo Switch on the content level. With The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Pikmin 4, Super Mario RPG or even Super Mario Bros. Wonder, there are still new games coming out for the current Switch.
