TLDR

• The launch of the Nintendo Switch 2 has been delayed to 2025, instead of late 2024 as previously rumored.
• The new console is expected to debut in the first quarter of 2025, potentially coinciding with the 8th anniversary of the Nintendo Switch.

In a recent article by The Indian Express, it was reported that the highly anticipated launch of the Nintendo Switch 2 has been delayed to 2025. Initially rumored to be released in late 2024, new reports from publications like VGC and Eurogamer are suggesting a launch in the first quarter of 2025. While the official name of the console has not been confirmed, there are speculations that it could be unveiled in March 2025, coinciding with the 8th anniversary of the original Nintendo Switch.

This delay is expected to give game developers more time to work on titles for the new console. The Nintendo Switch 2 is rumored to be powered by a next-generation NVIDIA Tegra processor with features like real-time ray tracking and may include a larger 8-inch display. The original Nintendo Switch has been a huge success, outselling competitors like the Sony PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. The company has released upgraded versions in the past, including one with an OLED screen and a more compact and affordable version called the Switch Lite.

While Nintendo consoles are not officially sold in India, they can still be purchased through online and offline stores at slightly inflated prices. The delay in the Nintendo Switch 2 launch is eagerly awaited by fans who are looking forward to the next-generation handheld gaming experience.
