According to the analysts of Citigroup, a smaller version of Nintendo switch is to be expected no later than 2019. This should be addressed to the younger audience.
According to unofficial projections last week, Nintendo’s new platform switch launched a successful launch and has already sold more than 2.4 million times.
The analysts at Citigroup also positively rate the launch of Nintendo’s newly released system and expect it to sell well in the near future. However, the thing according to Citigroup a hook: The currently available model of Switch is simply too large, to make the stationary play and the mobile use for all customers interesting.
According to Citigroup, Nintendo is expected to follow a kind of mini-model by 2019 at the latest. “The Nintendo switch can be used like a handheld, but we think that smaller children will have problems with it because they can not be used comfortably because of their size and weight,” said Citigroup market researchers.
And further, “We expect Nintendo to follow a lighter, dedicated handheld version of Switch, which may be called Switch Mini.” Nintendo itself did not want to comment the rumors around an revised version of Switch.
