Nintendo reportedly releasing two new Switch models this year

Nintendo Switch

Yesterday, a report from the Wall Street Journal revealed some new details on two new Nintendo Switch models which are supposed to be released later this year.

The enhanced version reportedly won't be as powerful as the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, which is unsurprising considering Nintendo's history of hardware choices. The sources also claimed the cheaper version, like the 2DS, will be more "kid-proof". The first will be a low-priced variant that omits the next-generation vibration feature built-into the detachable Joy-Con controllers. Eurogamer describes the split evolution as akin to the 2DS and New 3DS vs. the original 3DS, one model being cheaper and sleeker while removing some defining features to drive down price while the other is a marked upgrade over the original design.

These unnamed sources point to a summer release date, with the story suggesting an announcement at E3 in June, followed by a retail release a few months later. Nintendo sees the other version, according to claims, as a successor to its ageing hand-held 3DS device.

Russian Federation sends military planes to Venezuela
After the arrival of Russian Defence Ministry officials in Caracas, media reported that Venezuela had deployed S-300 systems. The cargo plane left Caracas on Sunday afternoon, according to Adsbexchange, another flight-tracking site.

The possibility of two new models is an interesting one.

The third year of a console's life cycle is considered make or break for its long-term success.

Every console in recent memory has been subjected to multiple redesigns and refreshes, so it was only a matter of time before Nintendo chose to give the Switch a rework.

But according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network , the New England Patriots will host the Sunday Night Football game instead. Green Bay lead the series 97-95-6 in the regular season, with the clubs splitting two postseason meetings.

Given E3 is now just a few months away, you can expect even more reports, rumours, and speculation about new hardware to continue to ramp up.

Those who are willing to foot the bill early can preorder and preload Duck Game via the Nintendo Switch eShop right now. It sold more than 32 million consoles worldwide in under two years, which is more than double the lifetime sales figure of the Wii U.
