Nintendo Switch Successor Will Be Revealed By April 2025

Nintendo has announced that the Switch’s successor will be revealed this fiscal year, which ends in April 2025.

Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa takes aim at Nintendo’s Japanese Twitter accountstating: “We will make an announcement about the successor to the Nintendo Switch this fiscal year. It will be more than nine years since we announced the existence of the Nintendo Switch in March 2015.”

As part of a results call, Furukawa was asked about the nature of the new system. According to MST financial analyst David Gibson, he replied, “The next model of Switch is the appropriate way to describe it”, indicating that the new system will not be a massive change from the original Switch. Previous Nintendo consoles – ranging from the GameCube to the Wii to the Wii U to the Switch – have seen radical changes in the basic concept of the hardware.

In the tweet, Furukawa also said that there would be a Nintendo Direct presentation next June showcasing content for the second half of 2024, but that it would not contain any information about the Nintendo Switch successor.

There were rumors that the Switch’s successor would launch this year, but recent reports suggest it has instead been pushed back to 2025.

The device would have magnetic Joy-Con controllers rather than the rail-equipped ones that the current Switch uses. However, the Pro controller should be backwards compatible with the successor.
