The handheld nature of the Switch might make it a candidate for a mid-life-span upgrade, Nintendo suggests...
With Sony's (relatively) new PlayStation 4 Pro and the impending release of Microsooft's Project Scorpio, it's starting to look like updating current consoles is becoming the preferred tactic to the traditional approach of releasing entirely new ones every few years or so. Nintendo is also no stranger to this approach, since it's had a long history of releasing improved versions of their handhelds, such as the Nintendo 3Ds Xl and New 3Ds.

So is Nintendo planning on releasing any similar updates to the console-handheld hybrid Switch? The answer to that question seems pretty complicated at the moment.
In an interview with Time, Nintendo director Shinya Takahashi and producer Yoshiaki Koizumi talked about the possibility of a midlife hardware upgrade to the Nintendo Switch.
