RUMOR: Switch successor reveal imminent as manufacturer reveals an early 2024 launch for a 'new console from a Japanese company'
It has been over six years since the Nintendo Switch first hit store shelves. Over the last few months, rumors have been circulating regarding what the Switch successor will look like and when we can expect it to launch. Well, thanks to the Chinese component manufacturer PixArt, we might have a pretty good idea of the latter.
In their latest financial report, PixArt confirmed that they are working on manufacturing parts for a “new console from a Japanese company” set to be released in early 2024. The Japanese company in question “hasn’t launched a new system in years,” (which rules out Sony) and based on the fact that PixArt has provided parts for other Nintendo systems in the past, including the Switch itself, It’s a pretty safe bet that Nintendo is the company that PixArt is working with.
If Nintendo really does have a new console planned for early 2024, we can expect an official announcement very soon. In the meantime, we’ll have to just be patient and wait to see if anything comes to fruition. As always, take everything with a grain of salt.
