Shuntaro Furukawa Expects a Long Life Cycle for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch Leader in the USA for Hardware and Software Sales in 2019

After talking about how Nintendo intends to compete with PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, the president of the Kyoto company, Shuntaro Furukawa, said he expects Switch to have a rather long life cycle.

The console is selling well in all the major markets and the forecasts for the near future are excellent, thanks to a software lineup that includes productions such as Luigi’s Mansion 3, Pokemon Sword and Shield, The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening, just to name a few.

According to Furakawa” Nintendo Switch still has a long life ahead and we will not repeat the mistake of leaving the console at its peak commercial as we did with Wii. We are developing new software and improving online services, our goal is to make sure that Switch could last on the market for a long time to come. “

For some time there has been talking of the imminent release of Nintendo Switch Mini, however, the Nintendo CEO declined to comment on the rumors, merely stating that the company is developing an ambitious new generation controller, without adding further details.
