The Nintendo Switch 2 continues to be the talk of the town, especially now that rumours are claiming it’s been delayed to 2025. While Nintendo has yet to comment on these rumours, it seems that shareholders are a bit annoyed by this, as share prices have taken a dip.

According to Bloomberg (via VGC), the company’s share prices have dropped to around 5.8%, though it was originally a much lower 8.8%. Even though the company is still doing well financially, the Switch 2 seemingly not coming this year has lost the faith of some stockholders.

Various analysts are pretty calm about this, though they feel that the stock will continue to drop unless details on the Nintendo Switch 2 are eventually revealed. Considering how fans want to hear about the new console, the company not detailing anything has annoyed everyone in the process.

“There seem to be a lot of new buyers of Nintendo who may be less familiar with the name and more impatient for the company to put up visible numbers,” analyst Mio Kato said. “Nintendo’s numbers for the March 2025 fiscal year could start to look rather ugly if key software is delayed at the same time that the current hardware has aged so much.”

We still don’t know any concrete details on the new system coming out, though the rumours that have been spread are interesting. Games like Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch on the system, showing just how powerful it’s going to be. Some reports have also said that Persona 3 Reload is going to launch on the new system, which should get Atlus fans talking.

Only time will tell if the Switch 2 lives up to our lofty expectations, especially since fans are hoping it keeps the console/handheld appeal of the first system. It seems that investors just want Nintendo to announce that a new console exists, with most of us hoping it won’t be another Wii U.
