Nintendo says preparing for new hardware takes a long time, and they want to plan properly for what's next
It's ready when it's ready
Earlier in the week, Nintendo shared their Q3 results for fiscal year 2024. As is tradition, that breakdown was followed by a question and answer session for investors. During that Q&A, an investor asked about how the Switch’s continued success relates to Nintendo’s next-gen hardware and when we’ll finally learn about it.
According to Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa, the Switch’s current success isn’t impacting plans for the company’s next round of hardware. Simply put, putting together a new piece of gaming hardware takes time, and Nintendo is making sure they’re doing everything they can to make the device a success.
