REPORT: Nintendo to Release Two New Switch Console Models

The Nintendo Switch has been a major success for Nintendo, selling over 32 million units by the end of 2018 alone. Hoping to expand their reach, the gaming company is reportedly readying to release two modified versions of the system.

As reported by the Wall Street Journal, the two models will differ in terms of appeal and intent. One version will lack the vibration feature, which suggests that the model will also not have a joy-con detachable controller. The system is reportedly being defined as the successor to earlier mobile gaming systems such as the Nintendo 3DS.

The other new model of the Switch is being built to cater to the gaming community. Although no concrete facts have been released about the model, it has been suggested that it will focus more on the home gaming experience instead of being built for mobile gaming. The graphics for the system may not reach the same level as the PS4 or the Xbox One, but they would be a noticeable improvement over the current model of the system.
