Nintendo Announces Switch Successor and June Direct


Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa just announced two things on Nintendo’s Twitter. He stated that a June Direct will occur and that a successor to the Nintendo Switch is in the works!

Currently there’s very little information for both the direct and the Switch successor. However, we do know that the June Direct will focus on Switch games. Additionally, this presentation will not feature the heavily speculated next console at all. It’s also still unclear exactly when we’ll get more information on the Switch’s successor. All that’s known is that it will be sometime during this fiscal year, so before March 2025.

Author’s Note: Well, that’s certainly a bizarre way to announce these things. That said, it’s exciting, isn’t it? What do you think about this? As always, please let us know in the comments below!

I have to stream the june direct!
Im sure they announce the next console there!
I hope its still a handheld because i got so used to just play wherever!
A switch with ps4 power would rock soo much!
Honestly for Nintendo graphic styles thats good enough tbh!

But i do hope that nintendo doesnt take this as an excuse to make zelda photorealistic!

Also having good ports again would be great!

The switch is the successor of both the Wii U and the 3DS in the sense that it was Nintendo's next home console and next handheld. The switch is generally viewed as a home console, so I wonder whether the handheld line will die.

I hope their handheld successor to the Switch will be more in line with the 3DS, but instead of limiting itself to mere 3D games, feature actual 4D games. Nintendo could include special 4D rendering software. 4D games already exist, but I think that not many people are familiar with them and 4D games never have gained wide popularity, yet.

Nintendo, if you are reading this, you are welcome for the idea. I am up for hiring.
