Nintendo Continued Support and Games
Shuntaro Furukawa, the president of Nintendo has just confirmed that the firm will continue in its support for the Nintendo Switch in the coming year with a new software planned for the year 2025.
Furukawa in a recent interview with Nikkei (translated via VGC) was asked whether the handheld in question will continue to see support now that it is six and a half years into its life cycle.
The president then responded by stating that Nintendo will continue its focus on the Switch until the fiscal year which is ending March 2024 and the console on the other hand will continue to see new games until 2025.

“We are still working on software for the Switch for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2025,” Furukawa stated.
“In the fiscal year ending March 31, 2024, we hope to sustain the momentum of Zelda and the [Super Mario Bros] movie, with a focus on the holiday sales season. As for hardware, we will maximize not only new demand for the hardware, but also for those buying second consoles and replacements.”
