The Switch has been nothing short of a phenomenon for Nintendo. Three years ago their hardware-making days were seemingly numbered, with many naysayers suggesting they should follow Sega’s example and focus solely on producing software for Sony and Microsoft's consoles.
However that all changed when the Switch exploded onto the scene and carved a lucrative niche in the market for the Big N to monopolise. To put it lightly, the House of Mario haven’t looked back since.
Despite the company’s resurgent success and the continuing high sales of the Switch 1 and its companion portable, the Switch Lite, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive as to whether the Japanese giant will release a sequel to its life saving hybrid.
It’s thought a next-gen Switch is a no-brainer as the company endeavour to combat the imminent launch of the Sony and Microsoft’s respective uber powerful, next generation consoles, the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X.
With that in mind, the current iteration of the Switch isn’t without its flaws and so if or when they do release a next gen competitor, what features and improvements need to be implemented to make it competitive?
