The Nintendo Switch Is Only Mid Way Through Its Lifecycle According to Nintendo Boss

In a recent investor QA, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa claims that the Nintendo Switch, which launched in 2017, is only halfway through its lifecycle.


“We are not able to comment about the next game system at this time. It is now the fifth year since the launch of Nintendo Switch, and the total hardware sell-through has exceeded 90 million units. We recognize that the system is at the mid-point of its lifecycle. The launch of Nintendo Switch – OLED Model has also been contributing to continued sales momentum and we are now offering consumers three Nintendo Switch models to match their play styles and lifestyles, as well as a wide range of software.

With this, we believe a foundation for growth has been laid that exceeds what we previously considered to be a conventional hardware lifecycle. With regards to the next game system, we are considering many different things, but as far as the concept and launch timing are concerned, there is nothing we can share at this time.”

This of course does not necessarily mean that a successor to the Switch is not in the works. It also does not mean that we need to wait another five years for a Nintendo console as there is no doubt there will be overlap. This is just your regular run-of-the-mill crap corporations say in investor calls.
