Do you think Nintendo will ever make another portable console?
Posted: Posted June 16th, 2017 by Welsh_Gamer

By the way, just to clarify... The Nintendo Switch is not a portable console, its a home console that can be played on the go. Also it only has a short battery life.

It seems that Nintendo are sticking with their 3DS as their main portable console. Only they releasing different versions of the same consoles (Such as the 2DS, the New Nintendo 3DS and the XL models). They are getting a lot of sales though.

Is this because Sony's PS Vita is their only competitor in the handheld market? It doesn't have as many sales and it has barely any exclusive games -

The only other handheld competitors it has are mobile phones.

So what do you think? Do you think Nintendo will ever release an entirely new portable console? The 3DS has been out since February 26, 2011. No sign of a new portable console in sight.
ALSO can any of you reply to my post about the Skate 3 women characters further down the forum? Thanks

Better battery life for something switch-like seems to be the best route.

I think it will heavily depend on the success if the switch. If the switch dies worse than 3ds sales, they probably will(less than 50 million). But the switch is doing great and will probably surpass Wii u sales a year from now(13 million) of they maintain their momentum and have enough supply.

I think a more handheld friendly variant if the switch is inevitable 1-3 years from now. It will have Pascal or another energy efficient chip to boost battery life by at least 50%. Screen could be smaller and they could have non detachable controls to save more money.
