It has been three odd years since Nintendo Switch first came into the market. The gaming console was released at the beginning of 2017, and after that, the company launched a smaller and handy Nintendo Switch Lite version and an upgraded version as well. However, it has not come up with any next-generation gaming console for which fans are eagerly waiting. It is also worth noting that the company had already announced that it would not be releasing any new Switch system this year.
Many gamers around the world love Nintendo Switch, but nobody will deny the fact that it is not the best console there in the market. Even though we all know that the next Nintendo system is not coming anytime soon, but whenever it does, there are few features gamers want it to have. So here are the top 5 things we all hope Nintendo Switch will come along with.
Gamers who have used the Nintendo Switch console must have seen their character running towards a particular direction for no reason without any tilt or movement. Many might have experienced their Joy-Con getting disconnected suddenly. This can be very frustrating during a crucial game. Due to such issues, there are questions of how long will the Switch consoles last. Nintendo must take these seriously and make sure that the new system does not come up with such defects.
It will be preferable if the controllers of Nintendo Switch 2 are detachable as it is the best thing about Nintendo systems. The addition they can make is to create more comfortable and efficient controllers. Right now, the Joy-Cons are small in size, which makes it uncomfortable for use. Also, the Joystick buttons and D-pad should be a bit bigger. But they also have to keep in mind that the next console is not too big.
Big Screen Size
Currently, the screen size on the Nintendo is 6.2-inch, which is fine, but it can run 720p only in handheld mode 1080p only when docked to a TV. If the display gets a few more inches, it can support 1080p in handheld mode and 4k when docked. The focus of Nintendo is always more on the gaming experience and less on the graphics, so in the new system, graphics should also be enhanced.
One of the most prominent drawbacks of the Nintendo Switch is that it lacks support for Bluetooth connectivity, meaning you can’t connect your wireless earphones with the console. Wired headsets have gone outdated; most gamers are now switching to the undisrupted wireless ones. We expect the 2nd version of the Switch to have support for Bluetooth connectivity; only then can it be justified as a gaming console to be used on the go.
Better Battery Life
We saw a considerable improvement in battery life with the launch of Nintendo Switch Version2, released back in 2019. This certainly helped the console last longer for on-the-go gaming sessions; however, we expect the battery life to get even better in the new version. Un upgraded battery life will surely make it more convenient for long journeys when you’re dependent on the Switch for passing the time.
More Color Choices
Even though the current colors provide a symmetrical and neat look to the Switch. We will prefer if the new variant comes with some new enticing color options rather than carrying on to the two-color based coloring of the current Joy-cons. It’ll be a fascinating fresh look to see the Switch with a unicolor body with vibrant new colors. All the Switch consoles till now have a black back casing. We are expecting to see more colors in the controllers as well as the casing.
The launch of the new Switch may be far ahead at this point. It is going to take a while for the new Switch to hit the markets finally. We hope that the team is up to something promising. Only time will tell how the new Nintendo Switch meets many of these expectations.
