Nintendo Switch 2: Does the Big N Plan Major Game Re-Releases? [VIDEO]

While Nintendo has already done it more than once with the Switch, releasing Switch versions of games for the abysmal failure that was the Wii U, what the Japanese company could do with the Switch’s yet-to-be-announced successor could be even bigger.


PH Brazil, a well-known insider, has reported several times about Nintendo’s Switch successor. He has said that the next hardware from the big N will not be released until 2025. His video in Portuguese was translated into English on Reddit, and it should be noted here that it is half speculation and half information. It is believed that there will be two major releases in the next fiscal year, April 2025 at the earliest.

One of the re-releases was originally released on GameCube and the other on 3DS. He believes that neither will be mentioned by the Japanese company during the Nintendo Direct in June. He then went on to mention what we reported: Nintendo has acquired Shiver Entertainment from the Embracer Group. He also suspects that this studio will be responsible for Switch 2 ports, as Nintendo plans to support the current platform after the release of the Switch successor due to its large user base. This would make the generation change easier, similar to the change between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

He says there will be Switch 2 exclusives, but there will also be new games and remasters in the first few years, similar to the way Nintendo supported the 3DS after the Switch. Speaking of 3DS, what games will Nintendo be remastering? Many titles have been mentioned by fans (Kid Icarus: Uprising, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Tomodachi Life…). There could also be some interesting GameCube options (Luigi’s Mansion, if the other two are already available on Switch; Metroid Prime 2, Metroid Prime 3, if the first one is remastered…).

All of this is unofficial.
