Nintendo is known for releasing hardware revisions for all its consoles, with the exclusion of the Wii U, and it seems like new Nintendo Switch models will be coming very, very soon.
According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, two new Nintendo Switch models will be released this Summer. The first model will be aimed toward avid gamers, coming with features that will target this demographic. While it’s hinted that the console will be more powerful, it also won’t be as powerful as the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.
The second new Nintendo Switch model will be a cheaper option and it will be aimed toward a more casual audience, and it will be labeled as the true successor of the Nintendo 3DS. Considering previous reports, this is likely going to be a portable only Nintendo Switch sold without the dock.
Additionally, WSJ reporter Takashi Mochizuki stated that two models are quite different from the original and they will surprise gamers.
My latest on new Nintendo Switch coming as early as this summer. There would be two models, and people who've seen them said designs of new devices are "different from the original and you'd be surprised." https://t.co/ZJ18BN2Gjm
