Exciting news for gamers in Kenya: Nintendo to launch new console by March 2025


In a highly anticipated announcement, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa has confirmed on social media platform X that the company will unveil the successor to the popular Nintendo Switch within the current fiscal year.

This is a significant development for gaming enthusiasts across the globe, especially as the Nintendo Switch hasn’t seen any major upgrades since its release in March 2015 – nine years ago.

The timeline for the announcement is in line with Nintendo’s fiscal year, which starts in April 2023 and ends in March 2025.

This means that fans can expect the official announcement of the new console by March 2025 at the latest.

There is still speculation whether Nintendo will launch an upgraded version of the Switch, possibly called the Nintendo Switch 2 or the Nintendo Switch Pro, or if the company will launch an entirely new console.

The Nintendo Switch has a global user base of 123 million gamers, according to GoNintendo. These gamers are eagerly awaiting Nintendo’s next move and are excited to see what innovations the company will bring to the gaming world in 2025.

This upcoming release is key for Nintendo as it looks to revive its console sales. Since peaking in 2021, Switch sales have been steadily declining, with forecasts predicting a further drop of 2.2 million units from the 15.7 million sold in the last fiscal year.

The new console could be the key to reversing this trend and boosting Nintendo’s market performance.
