Nintendo More Interested in Peripherals Than Switch 2.0

  • Nintendo Switch's First Birthday is on March 3

During an investor briefing in February, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima reportedly said he wanted to extend the Switch's product cycle beyond the industry standard of five to six years. If Labo does become a hit, then Nintendo wouldn't really need a hardware refresh anytime soon. Two days from now the Switch hardware will celebrate its 1st anniversary and all the signals coming out of Nintendo suggest the hardware will remain exactly the same when we reach its 2nd anniversary next year.

The company has high hopes for its Nintendo Labo cardboard toy kit, which goes on sale in Australia shortly and is aimed at attracting parents looking for an educational toy for their children.

Sources speaking to the WSJ said that Nintendo now has "no plans" to release a Switch 2.0, at least not in the near future.

Instead, the report states that Nintendo is relying on "additional network-related features and peripherals to be attached to its USB Type-C port" to keep sales strong in this second year. Waiting longer to introduce iterative hardware would certainly help accomplish that goal. The report also makes short mention of the Switch now expecting to hit 17 million sales worldwide by March this year - that's now, by the way.

That information may be disappointing to fans who were eager to purchase a miniature version of the console, but Nintendo's decision to focus on the existing model does make business sense. Were you holding out for a revised console?

The Labo is one of the steps planned by Nintendo to lure a wider range of customers.
