But whatcha got on the side?
Everyone knows that the Switch’s successor is drawing near. Fans can feel it, analysts are predicting it, and insiders are claiming its on the way soon. As for the Big N themselves, they’re still holding their cards very close to the chest.
Nintendo just shared their Q3 results for fiscal year 2024, and it showed that although the Switch is long in the tooth, it’s still moving major units and bucking projections. It’s no surprise Nintendo isn’t rushing on to their next hardware, and it seems like the Switch is where the company will be making most of its money this year.
In a conference call following their Q3 report, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said that the Switch will be Nintendo’s “main business” as we get deeper into 2024. He also stated that the company will talk about plans for their next fiscal year come the Q4/FY earnings briefing. Outside of that, Furukawa only trotted out the same sentiment we’ve heard time and time again; that Nintendo is always researching new hardware and software.
