According to Bloomberg reporter Takashi Mochizuki, Furukawa said that the company does not intend to announce a new Nintendo Switch model anytime soon during a recent investor Q&A tied to the latest financial results. This phrasing doesn't necessarily preclude the rumored Nintendo Switch Pro or Super Nintendo Switch releasing this year as while previous reports had indicated it would release in 2021, there's still plenty of 2021 to go at this point.
Q: new model this year?— Takashi Mochizuki (@6d6f636869) February 1, 2021
A: not planning to make an annoucement anytime soon as we have Mario ver in Feb, MH ver in Mar.
Hint: Nintendo chief last year said not planning to release new model in 2020. Today's was just "not anytime soon." So, that means...?https://t.co/MQkwskXYrn
The Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, the two official models of the console, are currently available wherever such things are sold, assuming you can find either of them in stock. Whether a new upgraded version of the Nintendo Switch releases this year remains to be seen, but it's something that's been constantly reported on.
