Nintendo shuts down ‘Switch successor’ speculation in upcoming Direct

Nintendo Switch

Nintendo has firmly shut down any speculation that the “Switch successor” will appear in the upcoming Nintendo Direct.

In a recent tweet, Nintendo said plainly “There will be no mention of the Nintendo Switch successor during this presentation“, shutting down any rumors before they even begin.

Nintendo has played the details and even the existence of a Nintendo Switch successor close to the vest, only announcing that there would even be one earlier this year. Of course rumors and speculation have been going on for much longer, and dev test kits for the new platform were allegedly sent out as early as July last year.

What we can expect from the upcoming Nintendo Direct is trailers and announcements for upcoming games in the latter half of 2024.
