It is an exciting time whenever a new game console is hitting the market but the gaming community should learn to measure expectations and respect the company taking time to bring a good product. The company is gearing up for the next generation and the fans need to have patience.

The President of Nintendo Asked the Fans to Wait for the Switch 2

The Japanese video game company is not in a rush to release its latest console. The company may be taking some notes from its strongest competitors like Sony and Microsoft in the hopes of avoiding making the same mistake when the two released the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

There is a plethora of reasons why President Furukawa is holding out on the console, perhaps the timing wasn’t right or the hardware itself is too far from a realistic launch window. Furukawa hopes the community can learn that and promises that the wait will be worth it.

The company has shown a great deal of innovation with the previous console and fans have high expectations for the successor to carry on with something new and fresh. Throughout the months, leaks and rumors were circulating about the next-gen console and Pokémon Legends: Z-A could be the first of many cross-generation games. It will take a while for the company to fully transition given the massive success and appeal of the Switch.

Furukawa’s statement is a class act of how to announce a gaming console without revealing too much or making any promises. No solid release dates were given apart from the promise of an imminent announcement later this year, and the community should not pressure the company any more than they already are and allow them to work peacefully.

Enthusiasts of the platform can look forward to a bright and optimistic future as things are shaping up positively. It is highly recommended to exercise patience and wait for the upcoming developments to unfold.

The Nintendo Switch was a massive success and the company is not about to lose its momentum and fumble in the following generation. Time can be a powerful ally for gaming companies, as rushing to launch a new product without proper preparation can have serious consequences.

Such a move could significantly impact the future of the platform, and it’s not worth the risk of trying to keep up with competitors. It’s better to take the time needed to ensure that the product is ready and fully functional before launching it to the market.
