Well-known analyst Ampere says that there will be no news about Nintendo Switch Pro, and Nintendo will launch a new generation console in 2024.
While some were waiting for the introduction of a much more powerful and mid-generation Nintendo Switch, the Japanese company Nintendo went for the Nintendo Switch OLED; A new model that is definitely not up to the expectations of many audiences about the Nintendo Switch Pro, and at the same time there is no denying its improvements over the normal switch. Now a well-known member of the Ampere analytics team predicts that the Switch Pro will not be released at all, and instead in 2024 we will see the arrival of the new generation Nintendo console.
The huge success of the switch made the memories of the Wii U failure fade and fade. The Nintendo Switch was released in 2017, with sales exceeding 90 million consoles. Pierce Harding-Rolls, head of video game research for the Ampere Analysis team, believes that by 2022, about 21 million Nintendo Switches will be sold. Not only is the OLED model attractive to many customers right now, but in the coming months we will see the release of Pokemon Legends: Arceus and the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
In his analytical forecast, he believes that with about 21 million Nintendo Switch sales in 2022, the Nintendo console will also be the best-selling console this year. He explained that based on Ampere’s understanding of market conditions, the new generation Nintendo Switch console will be launched in 2024, and as a result, the introduction of a Nintendo Switch Pro for this generation has become meaningless.
A significant part of the switch’s success has to do with the Japanese market, which is extremely popular with the Nintendo console. A few days ago we saw the release of Famitsu report on the sale of more than 5 million Nintendo Switch consoles in 2021 in the Japanese market; During the same period, sales of PlayStation 5 and Xbox X Series | The Xbox S Series reached about 950,000 consoles and about 100,000 consoles, respectively.
