After staying quiet for a long time while rumours of a successor to the Switch circulate online, Nintendo has officially made its first announcement about the Switch 2. While no official release date has been announced, Nintendo confirmed it will reveal the next Switch “within this fiscal year,” a deadline of March 31, 2025.

We will make an announcement about the successor to Nintendo Switch within this fiscal year,” says a message from Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa. “It will have been over nine years since we announced the existence of Nintendo Switch back in March 2015. We will be holding a Nintendo Direct this June regarding the Nintendo Switch software lineup for the latter half of 2024, but please be aware that there will be no mention of the Nintendo Switch successor during that presentation.”

The official message from Furukawa matches the latest rumors which state that the Switch 2 will arrive in 2025. Until now, Nintendo has kept mute on its plans for a successor to the Switch.

According to rumours, the Switch 2 will be a hybrid console similar to the current Switch, but with upgraded and powerful technical capabilities. It will launch with an 8-inch LCD display, rather than the OLED on the current Switch. It will also feature a new Joy-Con that attaches to the console magnetically.
