Nintendo doesn’t want to “spoil the surprise” of a Switch Mini

Nintendo has acknowledged rumours of a new, smaller Switch Mini console but won’t confirm or deny them in order to keep consumers guessing, the company has said.

“While we are aware there has been coverage to that effect, we cannot comment in regards to speculation and rumors about new hardware or software,” Nintendo President, Shuntaro Furukawa, said specifically of the Switch Mini during a recent investor Q&A.

“It would spoil the surprise for consumers and is against the interests of our shareholders, so we are withholding any discussion.”

Rumours of a Switch Mini started with Nikkei and have since been bolstered with early information of Switch Mini peripherals from third-party manufacturers. We’ll let you know if Nintendo changes its tune and announces the refreshed Switch.
