Nintendo has confirmed that the company has “no plans” to introduce a new Nintendo Switch model in 2020.

This comes in response to expectation from investors that Nintendo would make a move to compete with Sony and Microsoft and their preparations to launch PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

“Regarding Nintendo Switch, we believe that it is important to continue to communicate the appeal of both Nintendo Switch systems and expand the installed base,” Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa explained at the recent Corporate Management Policy Briefing.

“Please note that we have no plans to launch a new Nintendo Switch model during 2020.”

The company will instead focus on promoting the Nintendo Switch Lite, for which, Furukawa adds, they believe they “have not yet fully communicated the special features and appeal.”
