Bloomberg says new Nintendo Switch will release later this year, announcement could come before E3 2021

According to the folks at Bloomberg, a new Nintendo Switch model will be released later this year and an official announcement could come before E3 2021. Read on below to learn more from Bloomberg writers Takashi Mochizuki and Debby Wu:

“The new console, likely to be priced higher than the $299 original, may be announced ahead of the E3 conference starting June 12 to allow publishers to showcase their full range of Switch games at the global event, the people said, asking not to be named because the plans are not yet public. It will be sold alongside the $199 Switch Lite, with the standard Switch phased out over time.

“Assemblers will start shipping the new model — whose commercial name is known only to a handful of people within the Kyoto-based company — as early as July and production is planned to ramp up to a peak in the October-December quarter. This is despite widespread semiconductor shortages that have affected the supply of everything from automobiles to TVs, headphones and games consoles, including the Switch itself.”
