2023 is a good guess but I'm sceptical.

We know that BOTW2 won't release this year. And we know that a bunch of games are still in production but don't have release dates.
Those include a new Donkey Kong game, a top-down Zelda game (possibly a Seasons/Ages remake), a new Fire Emblem game(possibly leaked), a Fire Emblem remake, Bayonneta 3, Metroid Prime 4, Detective Pikachu 2 and a few other titles.
Some might get canned like the Switch 1-2 sequel other titles may have evolved and finally there's a bunch of games that have been rebooted a couple of times like Metroid Prime 4.

Overall I think Nintendo will wait and see and aims for a spring 2024 release for the Switch 2 at the earliest.
From what they have said about a possible Switch follow up it seems like they're still working on the concept and specs.
They probably want to come in at $299 (maybe $399) with a machine capable of running Unreal Engine 5 and a Mario game at launch.

This is true but I think they're being cagey as Nintendo is wont to do. They've always gone into prepro on a new system shortly after the current one launches, so they have 5 years of R&D under their belt (during the splurgiest R&D period in Nintendo's history). I think the system is far enough along in terms of design (possibly explaining some of the leaks) but Nintendo is probably apoplectic over the current state of getting chips, so they're not going to charge in guns blazing when they know they're low on bullets.

Conspiracy theories say Nintendo intentionally limited the initial stock for Wii but I don't think that was ever true. I think they were legitimately caught off-guard by the insane popularity coming off the GameCube, and I think that memory still lingers in the current executives' minds.

Right now they're probably selecting which specific CPU/GPU to use, and I'd expect that to be all that's left to do at this point aside from stuff that comes later like services and software. And seeing how they publicly dumped Nvidia mid-development for the 3DS's GPU, it seems like Nintendo knows how to swap similar chips while still achieving their desired end-product.

:hesright

This.  They don't need to hurry up with a new system.  My prediction is that next year we'll get yet-another round of "SWITCH PRO IS COMING!!!!" rumors, but there won't be anything new until 2024 at the earliest. 

I assume they will continue with the portable+dock thing with their next system and that it will be backwards-compatible.

Who's asking for a new Switch? Honestly. Software and hardware sales seem very strong. Other than enthusiasts who care about things that the majority don't, I don't see people crying out for a new Switch.

Honestly, these new consoles could have waited till 2023 to launch if you want to know my real opinion.

I look at XB3 and it looks perfectly fine to me. Could it be better? Sure, but like Im going to enjoy it perfectly fine on the old Switch hardware.

To me this isn't the 3DS where it looked ugly in it's own space. Vita, iphone, and so on were pushing out visuals and tech beyond what the 3DS seemed to do. Whereas to me the Switch is putting perfectly fine-looking games and there's nothing on the next gen systems that has truly blown me away and won't until 2023.

Hopefully they won't be fuckshits like MS and Sony were and will hold off on launching any new hardware until all the chip shortage nonsense has ceased. ::)

Does this launch before or after the Switch Pro Direct.
The list of 'pretty much' done Nintendo games is getting pretty long at this point and we haven't seen any of them except a leaked early version of Fire Emblem with a poor Chinese translation. :idont

I feel like you haven't had consistent Nintendo Intel for a while now  :doge

Unless Prime 4 absolutely doesn't exist (it does), Prime 1 remaster coming out a year after the moderately successful Metroid Dread makes sense for drumming up Metroid hype.

Also, Nintendo has been killing it regarding software. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is looking like a potential GOAT JRPG.  8)

What I'm seeing now is that Nintendo's "holiday" looks like this:
- Xenoblade 3 (extended promotions/CE reprint)
- Splatoon 3
- Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope
- Pokemon Violet/Scarlett
- Advance Wars 1+2 (?)
+ Mario Kart DLC
+ Mario Strikers DLC
+ Maybe Bayonetta 3 (it has to release some day before Platinum folds, right?).

Even though I want it to be real, I've not seen a single hint that a Metroid Prime remaster is on the way this holiday.
I do think there will be some exciting third party surprises people aren't counting on in the new Direct. At some point they have to show that Resident Evil game for Switch.
They might show some games they've been working on 'with' third parties much like Mario + Rabbids. They've worked on an action game based on a Nintendo IP with Bandai Namco too but no one knows what it is.

Assuming we do eventually get remasters of the Primes, I hope both control schemes are available.

Prime remake will be free if you preorder Prime 4. It will be a disc that includes all the previous metroid releases including content designed for the 64 DD

That's how the Nintendo i love roles

Xenoblade 3, Pokemon, Bayonetta, and probably some surprise third-party stuff sounds pretty great to me.

Not caught up on Metroid Prime 4. Last I heard, they scrapped one version, apologized, and started over? If they were too ambitious before and tried to do a BOTW or Halo Infinite shift to full open world. Now itís back to being the Metroid Prime 1 style.

Dread was pretty decent and was the biggest surprise on the Switch imo, but why isn't Nintendo dishing out Metroids and Zeldas of that calibur (old school style) like they do pokemunz?  There's literally one Metroid, and besides Link's Awakening being a remake, they've only ported 2 other Zeldas.. I thought this thing was a cum dumpster for ports, but it's like they half-ass the Metroid and Zelda love.  I really do hope they bring the WiiU Zeldas, bring the Oracle remakes and also MP trilogy remasters.. Maybe then I can quit my bitching and put my WiiU up in storage finally.

Pokťmon is flaming hot garbage compared to a high-quality Metroid or Zelda.  Also, just because they might be old school style doesnít mean there isnít a lot of work that goes into the games.  That said, I wonít defend how Nintendo has been with rereleasing their legacy games ever since they dropped Virtual Console, itís fucking shit and I hate that they did that.

Maybe it will turn out much better than that Steam port.  :doge

Not a streaming game.  Coming out in October.

They could easily put something decent out if they gave it to a good port studio and don't cheap out on it (thats why I assumed streaming).

The Witcher 3 and Doom ports are supposed to be shockingly good on Switch.

They are really good ports and Doom was further patched to run even better.  My guess is Nier will be 30 FPS.
