Nintendo has claimed there will be no more new Switch hardware releasing in 2019, following yesterday's unveiling of the Switch Lite.
The new handheld-only device is one of two models that were long-rumoured to be in production, as well as a more advanced model -- dubbed the 'Switch Pro' in many reports -- that would target hardcore gamers.
Both devices were expected to launch this year, starting with Lite in the summer. However, in an interview with CNET, Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser said the Lite will be the only new Nintendo Switch hardware this year.
With Switch Lite launching on September 20th, and likely to be Nintendo's big hardware push for Christmas, it's possible the Switch Pro has been pushed to 2020.
Elsewhere in the interview, Bowser said the Lite and flagship Switch will "complement each other and coexist in the market," and expects the Lite will help towards Nintendo's previously stated goal of selling multiple Switch units to each household.
"I could see this fitting into a household where there are multiple players... and one flagship Nintendo Switch."
