Nintendo plans two new Switch models for 2019

Nintendo plans two new Switch models for 2019 -

Nintendo has plans to release two new models of the Nintendo Switch "as early as this summer," according to a Wall Street report citing "parts suppliers and software developers for Nintendo ". One of the models is said to be a cheaper variant, while the other device reportedly has “enhanced features targeted at avid video gamers.”

The WSJ says the cheaper model will omit the vibration feature, suggesting that it won’t have detachable Joy-Con controllers at all; it’s said to be seen as a successor to the 3DS.

This cheaper Switch would reportedly cut costs by losing features such as controller vibration. That's a move which would render portions of games such as 1-2-Switch and Super Mario Party unplayable, but Nintendo "judged the new Switch models won't need the vibration feature because there wouldn't be many games released using the full benefit of it," according to a quoted supplier.

The WSJ says the new Switch hardware is likely to be announced at E3 in June.
