Nintendo has never held back when it comes to revising their current hardware. The Wii went through a few changes throughout its lifetime with the release of the Family Edition and the Mini, and the 3DS family currently has six different models to choose from. However, it seems like Nintendo is moving away from this trend with the Switch, choosing instead to focus on the creation of new peripherals to keep the hardware fresh.

The Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mokizuchi reported that Nintendo is looking to keep the Nintendo Switch around longer than the usual five or six year life span. To do this, the company is deciding to hold off on hardware revisions for the time being and instead focus on increased manufacturing of the current model. Mokizuchi also reported the USB-C port on the system would allow different peripherals and network-related features to be used.

Our Verdict

Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
