Nintendo has pledged to keep releasing new games for Nintendo Switch outside “traditional platform lifecycles”, suggesting the Switch will be supported for a long time.

The news comes from Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa, who confirmed Nintendo’s diligence to the wildly popular hybrid console in their latest financial presentation.

“Nintendo Switch will be entering its eighth year in March 2024,” Furukawa said. “We will continue to release new titles and content for Nintendo Switch without being bound by the traditional concept of the platform lifecycle.”

He added, “Going forward, we would like to continue to see many consumers play Nintendo Switch, and to maintain our business momentum.”
