Fans keep saying that the leaks are the reason; other users think that this is a move from Nintendo to finally unveil this console before or after the Gamescom.

The biggest announcements in gaming are always in June, within events like the Summer Game Fest or years earlier, the E3. Many companies choose their own single event to introduce new projects or even consoles; Nintendo may be aiming for this strategy.

Rumors about this new console have been circulating for years, and fans are really eager to see the next hardware from the creators of Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Metroid Prime.

Many third-party developers have talked about how difficult it is to work with this old hardware console that has been on the market for almost seven years. This company really needs to keep up with the times.

Nintendo has been very cautious about how it will announce this new console, which will be the definitive successor to the Switch, one of history’s most successful consoles.

This new platform will follow the sales paths of the first hardware; the hybrid part of the console is the main feature. The majority of insiders are speculating that the announcement of Switch 2 will happen sometime this year.
