Nintendo Updates Developer Portal for Switch Successor


Nintendo‘s highly anticipated successor to the beloved Switch has been largely kept secret, but it appears that Nintendo is still progressing with its development, as indicated by its developer portal. Among all the leaks surrounding the Switch 2 that have emerged so far, this one is by far the most significant.




As the Switch enters its seventh year on the market, many in the industry and fanbase alike are curious about when and how Nintendo will unveil its sequel, considering that the current console is showing signs of aging and is either losing ports or receiving significantly downgraded versions. Numerous rumors and leaks have been circulating regarding the upcoming console, including its graphical capabilities, the timeframe for its reveal and/or release, its similarity to the Switch, and the unique features that may be integrated into its controllers. However, very little has been officially confirmed, leaving Nintendo fans hungry for more information.

Nintendo has only disclosed two things about its upcoming console: that it will carry over players’ Nintendo accounts, and (in passing) the simple fact that it exists. According to prominent leaker NWPlayer123, the codename for the console has also been revealed, at least to Nintendo employees. Although the original tweet has been deleted, the image has been preserved. Taken from the exclusive developer site, it displays a list of Nintendo’s current and slightly older consoles, with an entry at the top that reads “NX 2.” NX was the codename for the original Switch until its official unveiling in October 2016.

However, it is possible that all of this information is merely a placeholder for something else that has not yet been finalized. Nevertheless, the fact that it shares the same Joy-Con icon as the Switch lends credibility to the notion that the new hardware will be a successor with a similar design rather than a complete overhaul. The new console is expected to have more powerful specifications that will allow it to compete with the Xbox Series X/S and the PlayStation 5, albeit to a lesser extent. Only time will reveal which of the many rumors are accurate and which ones are not.

Nintendo has expressed satisfaction with the ongoing success of the Switch, even after seven years on the market, which may explain its reluctance to release a significant upgrade. However, with recent declines in profits, a well-known dependence on software for revenue, and further profit declines projected, it may be time for Nintendo to move away from complacency and generate excitement for its inevitable next console instead of operating in secrecy.

Nintendo‘s inevitable successor to the beloved Switch has been mostly kept under wraps, but it seems Nintendo is still moving ahead with its development, according to its developer portal. Out of all the Switch 2 leaks that have come thus far, this one is easily the most substantial.




As the Switch enters its seventh year on the market, many in the industry and fandom alike are wondering when and how Nintendo will unveil the sequel to it, given the current console is showing its age and is either losing ports or receiving significantly downgraded ones. Many rumors and leaks have been spread regarding what’s to come next, pertaining to its graphical specs, the window of time in which it will be shown off and/or released, how similar it may be to the Switch, or even the unique features that might come built into its controllers. Yet almost nothing has been officially confirmed, which only serves to keep Nintendo fans peckish.

Nintendo has only confirmed two things about its next console: that it will carry over players’ Nintendo accounts, and (offhandedly) the simple fact that it exists. And thanks to known leaker NWPlayer123, apparently the codename has been revealed too, at least to those who work for Nintendo. Though the original tweet was deleted, the image has been saved. Screencapped from the exclusive developer site, it showcases a list of Nintendo’s current and slightly older consoles, and at the very top is an entry that reads “NX 2.” NX was the codename for the original Switch up until its October 2016 reveal.

Of course, all of this could just be a placeholder for something else that hasn’t been finalized yet, but a detail such as this combined with it boasting the same Joy-Con icon with the Switch gives credence to the idea of the new hardware being a very similar successor as opposed to a complete refresh. The new console is expected to boast more powerful specs that will let it compete with the Xbox Series X/S and the PlayStation 5, if only a bit more easily, but only time will tell which of the many rumors are true and which ones are not.

Nintendo has stated that it’s been happy with the Switch’s consistent success even seven years in, which would explain its hesitance to release a substantial upgrade. But with a recent drop in profits, a well-documented reliance on software to stay afloat, and a further profit decline expected, it might be time for Nintendo to stop resting on its laurels and build some hype for its inevitable next console instead of just working in the shadows.
