GamesIndustry.biz is back with its annual predictions for the year, and it seems that industry experts think it’s about to be a big year for Nintendo.
Mat Piscatella of NPD, Dr Serkan Toto of Kantan Games and Piers Harding-Rolls of Ampere Analysis all predicted that the Switch family would be the best-selling console in 2021, and although Piscatella was not convinced that Nintendo would release a new model , the latter two disagree.
When asked for his first 2021
Harding-Rolls is a little more reserved when it comes to Nintendo’s next move. Last year, he said the launch of the Switch Pro was “unlikely” in 2020 – and he was right. Now he says that Switch Pro would be “commercially sensible”, and that he currently has it in his 2021 forecasts.
Of course, we know nothing, but after many years of Switch Pro rumors, we are understandably skeptical, even though the new predictions come from people who get paid to do so.
Can 2021 finally be the year of 4K Nintendo games? Would you like to upgrade to a Switch Pro if you had the choice? Discuss in the comments below!
