In recent news, Bloomberg reports, Nintendo Co will release an upgraded Nintendo Switch to hit the market in early 2021.
The gaming giant released two new Switch models in 2019, offering a more power-efficient device but kept with the original hardware. This latest overhaul will breathe new life into the popular gaming console as the new upgrade will be a significant performance boost since its 2017 debut. Bloomberg notes Nintendo "Has looked into including more computing power and 4K high-definition graphics."
Bloomberg's information suggests that the redesign will launch alongside a solid new game lineup in hopes of rivaling those of the Sony Corp PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Corp Xbox Series X this holiday season. Without any major title release announcements made, it leaves us wondering if Nintendo will release the long-awaited The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel over the Holiday Season.
Nintendo has been flourishing in sales, distributing more than 61 million consoles surpassing the original Famicom/Nintendo Entertainment System with Animal Crossing: New Horizons influencing the majority of console purchases during the coronavirus pandemic.
