The Nintendo Switch 2 won’t be released until March 2025 at the earliest in order to minimize stock and supply issues—or, more specifically, to reduce scalping—according to a new report that Japan’s Nikkei published today, teasing the ETA of Nintendo’s next system. The story is paywalled, but the excerpt includes a few details on the Nintendo Switch 2’s supposed tech, including “higher-definition image quality.”

Nikkei reports (machine translation):

Nintendo will release a successor to the Nintendo Switch game console in March 2025. Like the Switch, it is expected to be a game console that has the features of both a stationary and portable version. Many in the industry predicted that it would be released in 2024, but we prioritized taking measures to prevent resale and securing an initial stock of successor machines and an assortment of popular software from the time of release.

Nintendo Switch 2 price speculation:

  • Nintendo Switch Lite: $199.99
  • Nintendo Switch: $299.99
  • Nintendo Switch OLED: $349.99
  • Nintendo Switch 2: $399.99

Nikkei on some of the Switch 2’s tech (machine translation):

The successor model will have a larger screen than the Switch (6.2 inches for the standard model), and will be able to play games that feature higher-definition image quality.
