Nintendo aims to record sales of games and consoles in the next fiscal year thanks to a line-up of successful new titles and a new Switch model.
According to a new report from Bloomberg, this is according to which the company plans to launch a new version of the Switch before the end of March 2022. This statement comes from the sources of ” component suppliers, software publishers, and resellers. ” According to these sources, Nintendo believes that introducing the new console will help keep Switch sales stable or slightly higher from year to year.
There are few details on the new model, with some rumors claiming it will feature an OLED screen and sharper images. This news is just the latest in a long line of rumors about the Nintendo Switch Pro, but with the base Switch now 4 years old, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see a new version of the console launch within the next 12 months.
Elsewhere in the article, it was also reported that Nintendo is planning a ” series of major releases ” that should help sell over 250 million units during the fiscal year. This is an increase of 45 million units from their current 205 million software sales projection for the year.
The recent Nintendo Direct revealed Splatoon 3, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, and Mario Golf Super Rush, while Pokemon Direct revealed Pokemon’s remakes Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, along with the first gameplay of Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
