The Nikon Report 2021 has recently been released, detailing some of Nikon's plans for the future of the imaging company. One of these plans includes the introduction of new "entrance models" that will not only be affordable, but will also have good video functionality as well.

With the Nikon D3500 discontinued in Japan, we're not surprised to see Nikon pursuing a new inexpensive entry-level model. While there's no further official information on what kind of camera we could be expecting, it seems likely that it will be a Z mount camera.
