Nintendo Switch: Advanced Version Already In Production?

By  | 

Talks about Nintendo possibly working on another Nintendo Switch console has been going around for some time now and now The Wall Street Journal is saying that Nintendo will be producing this new console in Southeast Asia instead of China in anticipation of the tariff war getting worse.

This is pretty big news since Nintendo has never really announced anything officially. The report goes on to say that President Trump did propose an import tax rate of 25% that could also include video game console, smartphone, and computers which would also lead to Nintendo having to increase the price of their game console.

This is far from ideal for Nintendo as companies don’t usually make much from the console itself but from the games and services they offer. At this point, Nintendo has not responded to any of these claims yet but they did announce some time ago that E3 2019 will only be about software and not new systems.
