Nintendo may be working on a smaller Nintendo Switch and new, robust game service
Let me play N64 games on Switch, please.
The Nintendo Switch had a great 2018, but now, according to a new report, Nintendo is looking at some new options for the popular console.
Originally from Japanese site Nikkei and translated by Nintendo Everything, the report states that the company has begun working on a smaller, and apparently cheaper, model of the beloved Switch console.
Other details are sparse, but I would have to imagine that if the company wants to focus on portability, the tray/dock will be the first thing to go. It could also get rid of detachable Joy-Con controllers and instead replace them with something slightly more compact. There is not confirmed release date, but the report says it could launch as early as this year.
In addition to a new console, Nikkei also states that Nintendo is looking at new subscription services for gamers. With many gamers wanting access to a greater variety of games than the NES games included with Nintendo Switch Online, a more robust option could definitely bring more paying customers in.
