Probably not, but I almost guarantee Metroid Prime 4, if it even comes out at all, will be delayed until Switch 2. What if MP4 was a Switch 2 launch title?
Why do people think this? Do you think parents will buy a much more expensive portable PC with limited availability for their kids over a Switch? The market doesn't think like you and that is a good thing.That valve incoming video gaming oriented portable computing device may hasten nintendo plans for the future.
I don’t even know if the switch 2 will be an easily defined thing. It might be like the 3DS and just have incremental upgrades or maybe the switch will go the route of Wii with an extended lifespan. Who knows could be wrong and it’s just an outright more powerful switch with better output battery life etc
Yeah exactly, I think people are getting hung up on semantics basically. If the rumored DLSS Switch exists then it's not necessarily a genuine successor of the Switch, more like another model in the Switch family of hardware like the Lite or the Oled model. They might even call it Switch 4K model for all we know.I don’t even know if the switch 2 will be an easily defined thing.

probably called Switch+
I can see the lifespan being longer than five years. The Wii had a long lifespan so will the switch.Switch is only just 4 years old, I’m being deadly serious when I say you better prepare for an 8 year generation from Nintendo. Hopefully I’m wrong and they release it after 6 or 7 years, however that would still take us way outside of BOTW2’s release window.
No, that's usually the "HD Remaster". That will come to the Switch's successors successor. The Switch's successor will probably just get a 1:1 port. Nintendo doesn't just double up on sales, they triple up most the time (if not more).Why would they do that when they can just sell it to you again for the Switch 2?
Nintendo already presented BotW2 with original Switch graphics and this is how it will be delivered. Its not unrealistic to expect a dedicated version for the Switch successor or maybe even a free upgrade but there won't be a delay. The Switch has a huge installment and Nintendo will reap the benefits of it with BotW2.
If anything Nintendo is more concerned producing enough packaging and cartridges to meet the initial hype demand while not disturbing the existing pipeline for all 1st and 3rd party retail releases.
When has Nintendo ever offered a free upgrade? For cross generation stuff? AFAIK everything has only ever been ports that you have to pay for. The only "free upgrade" may have been the Zelda Master Quest or Zelda Limited Edition stuff on GameCube, but that was limited runs and I think you had to buy the console to get it (so technically not free).
No. It could run on the wii U by the looks of it, so the current hardware is fine.
That’s true but with the wii it was because of motion, and also to get more sales since the cube didn’t sell amazing.I don't think that they will delay the game, but I don't think hardware power has anything to do with it. It never has before.
Twice they delayed Zelda for a new system, and both times the old one got the same game. It's about the game supporting the system, not vice versa.
So no new iPhone this year either? Just because it sells well doesn't mean they don't want to keep momentum going. But you're probably right since it's Nintendo.

Switch got breath of the wild because of even poorer sales on wii u, and also the handheld aspect.
The switch is extremely successful unlike the last two examples, and esp. if there’s no gimmick to the next system I don’t think they would delay it for any reason.
But again the main thing is adoption rate, and botw 2 is going to sell shiploads on the switch as is.
