An Enhanced Version of the Nintendo Switch Might Release in 2021

Production units are expected to be increased drastically for this year

Nintendo Switch launched a bit over 4 years ago and has sold over 78 million consoles to date, according to Statista. The handheld console has had its fair share of success but hasn’t seen an upgrade to the base model all this time. This, however, is well on its way to change as Nikkei—a renowned Japanese publisher—has filed a report with enticing headlines.

This was first spotted by Redditor GoldenTriforceLink who found Takashi Mochizuki’s tweet linking to the Nikkei article. Takashi is an established tech reporter for Bloomberg who has a part in the latest report by the Japanese news media website.

According to Nikkei, Nintendo intends to bump up the production of Switch units and reach a 30-million milestone. Doing so would allow the small-scale console to sell 110 million units. This, by far, is no easy feat and is quite the target Nintendo is aiming to hit this year.

Further on in the article that only Nikkei members can read, the report says that the gaming giant is planning to release a graphically upgraded version of the Nintendo Switch. This could tie in with the rumors relating to the launch of the Nintendo Switch Pro, but we’ll yet have to wait and let time unfold the events ahead.
