New Nintendo Switch Hardware Accessories Coming To Lift Sales

WSJ: Nintendo Looking To Increase Switch Sales With New Peripherals And Not Revisions

Nintendo More Interested in Peripherals Than Switch 2.0

In other words, it's flying off the shelves.

While both Sony and Microsoft have both released updated versions of their consoles with the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, respectively, Nintendo reportedly isn't planning to follow suit. This definitely falls in line with what Tatsumi Kimishima, Nintendo CEO, recently said about expanding the console's cycle to longer than the typical five, six years.

In terms of peripherals, it's released second Circle Pads for 3DS (quite useful!) and made a big, janky robot for the NES (just strange).

More importantly, Burkina Faso contributes more troops to the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Mali than other West African nations, he said.

The development of the Nintendo Labo definitely seems to be part of the company's long-term strategy. The first and most high-profile of those peripherals is Nintendo Labo, which will be sold as a range of DIY interactive cardboard toys reliant on the Switch to function. Even Nintendo itself has said that Switch's second year will be "crucial" in determining how successful it is.

According to these sources, Nintendo is more focused on additional features related to the network and peripherals to be connected to USB Type-C ports on Switch. Waiting longer to introduce iterative hardware would certainly help accomplish that goal.

Nintendo has no plans for a revised version of the Switch console nor is there any plans for a version 2.0. But as of right now, it's not in the cards. The hybrid console, which celebrates its 1 birthday this weekend, got off to a red-hot start with sales of almost 15 million units in 2017.

What do you make of this news?

That information may be disappointing to fans who were eager to purchase a miniature version of the console, but Nintendo's decision to focus on the existing model does make business sense.
