Insider PH Brazil, the initial source of the Switch 2’s delay to 2025 (later corroborated by reputable outlets like Bloomberg and Video Games Chronicle), indicates that the unveiling of the Switch 2 is expected during the traditional E3 season in June. While Nintendo has officially confirmed plans to outline future developments in their May earnings report, they have not explicitly detailed new hardware, leaving room for a broad, details-light mention in May followed by the actual hardware reveal in June.
