What does Nintendo's new announcement mean for the Switch Pro?

If, like most Nintendo fans, you've been wondering when the much-rumoured Switch Pro is finally going to arrive, the company's latest earnings report may – or may not – be music to your ears. Nintendo has just explicitly stated that the Switch is "only in the middle" of its lifecycle – which could have big implications for the Switch Pro.

The report announces that the Switch has just passed 100m units sold, making it officially the company's best-selling console ever. But if it's got another 5 years in it, does that mean we should give up hope for the Switch Pro? (Check out the best Nintendo Switch deals if you're ready to start gaming right now).
