Nintendo considers the Switch successor a "major concern"

It's crazy just how young the Nintendo Switch is when you consider how many units Nintendo has sold and how it's supposed to be from the same generation as the PS4 and the Xbox One.

Suffice to say, the Switch is on track to overtaking every console but the Nintendo DS and the PlayStation 2 in lifetime sales.

Having said that, the Switch's success appears to be causing concerns for Nintendo.

Nintendo president, Shuntaro Furukawa, revealed that the post-Switch transition is a "major concern" for the console manufacturer.

Furukawa explains that the company wants to make sure that the transition from the Switch to its successor is "as smooth as possible."

When you've got a potential player base north of 100 million, it's easy to see why this is keeping Nintendo up at night.

While a Switch successor is inevitable, we're hoping that Nintendo has one more mid-cycle upgrade for the Switch in the cards.
