Gamescom officially took place last week and Nintendo was indeed in attendance to sell merch and show games to attendees. As it turns out, Nintendo may have had some very interesting meetings behind the scenes of the event, as word has begun to spread that the company is now showing its next-gen console to partners.
According to Jez Corden, who also attended Gamescom this year, Nintendo apparently began talking about its next console with select press/developers in private meetings. This matches up with recent rumours that claimed that some studios have started to receive the first development kits.
Recently, some people have been circulating the name ‘Nintendo Focus' online, but that name has not been corroborated or confirmed by any trusted source yet.
The Nintendo Switch first launched in March 2017 and has gone on to become one of the best-selling consoles of all time. Fans have been asking for a more powerful model for years but Nintendo instead opted to stick to its current technology and quietly work away on the next full console release instead. Nintendo's next console is expected to launch in 2024.

KitGuru Says: When it comes to Nintendo, there tends to be a lot of fake leaks and many rumours often don't pan out. With that in mind, take this information with a grain of salt.
