    According to the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo won't be looking towards hardware revisions for the Switch, at least for a while. Sources close to the company state that Nintendo will instead opt to focus on making peripherals to draw in sales. The Switch is on track to have sold 17 million units by the end of March, a year after the console's launch. This report comes a month before the release of a peripheral for the Switch; the Nintendo Labo, which Nintendo plans for it to cater to a market that might not normally buy a Nintendo Switch. Additionally, the Wall Street Journal report claims that new peripherals that use the Switch's USB-C port are in the works, as well as new network features. In regards to a hardware revision of the Switch, the source says that this is unlikely, as Nintendo will be focusing on streamlining current manufacturing for the system.

    Amazing so a second screen to turn it into a SwitchDS? Or emulators so it's a almost proper 2DS XXL?

    From a company that often blatantly lied about their short term future I wouldnt trust anything like that.
    Switch has a couple of problems that would definitely benefit from a hardware revision. And I'm sure there will be one this year.

    does it support bluetooth audio output yet ? it did not at launch, and I doubt it can be added by software upgrades...
    Would be a nice addition. I bought myself a good bluetooth headset so it would be a shame if I had to go back to silly ear plugs.
    But I guess if they aren't doing hardware upgrades, we aren't going to see this happen anytime soon :(
