Will Nintendo release a Nintendo Switch Mini in 2019?

Will Nintendo release a Nintendo Switch Mini in 2019?

We knew the Nintendo Switch was off to a good start, based on USA sales numbers from March NPD numbers, but now it appear that the young upstart console has broken Nintendo's expectations with more than 2.4 million units sold worldwide.

It should be noted that the Switch has struggled with supply issues since launch, suggesting that if Nintendo had been able to keep up with demand, figures could have been even higher. The game console manufacturer was proud to say that the console is one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time.

There has never been another console quite like the Nintendo Switch.

As Bloomberg reports, financial analysts for Citigroup, Inc. predict the company will launch a smaller version of its Nintendo Switch console in 2019.

The new Nintendo Switch launched on March 3 and as expected, it sold out on launch day.

And now, analysts have predicted Nintendo will be trying to capitalise on the popularity of its latest console with another Switch device in the future. With the Switch, Nintendo has once again delivered a different type of console, a meshing of earlier models while still avoiding a confrontation with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on raw performance. GameStop said last month that the game had an "almost one-to-one attach result" with the Switch hardware, and the title sold to about 91 percent of initial Switch owners in France. The announced Nintendo Switch game line-up includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Saying the Switch and its flagship game have gotten off to a good start would be an understatement.

Both the Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild broke internal sales records during their release month this past March. Any game sold in any region will be playable on the Nintendo Switch.
