Nintendo Switch 2 report reveals first details on upcoming Nintendo console
Nintendo is working on a successor to Nintendo Switch that will be released between the holidays of 2022 and early 2023, according to a new report. Throughout this year and throughout last year, Nintendo fans have heard a wide range of issues. range of sources, many of which are generally reliable – that Nintendo was working on a Nintendo Switch Pro and that it would be revealed this year. This does not happen. Instead, Nintendo revealed the Nintendo Switch OLED, which is an upgrade to the base Nintendo Switch model, but hardly a “Nintendo Switch Pro”. That said, if a new report is to be believed, it may be because Nintendo ditched console overhaul plans in favor of releasing a brand new successor to Nintendo Switch.
The new report comes from Nate the hate on YouTube, a Nintendo insider and leaker who has proven to be reliable in the past, but a source that has also been wrong in the past. As noted, the report mentions that a release is in about a year, plus or minus a few months. If this is true, an announcement should arrive a bit soon.
In addition to the console leak and its release window, the report also mentions that it is currently not backward compatible with Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, and Nintendo Switch OLED games, but Nintendo is apparently making an effort to remediate.
On top of that, it is claimed that the console will support 4K through Nvidia DLSS, which in turn suggests that it won’t be far from the PS5 and Xbox Series X specs, but how it would achieve it while being a machine. portable and maintaining a friendly price is not clear.
In terms of important information, the report doesn’t divulge much other than to assert that dev kits for the console started rolling out to studios and developers last year, which may explain why we’ve heard so much about a “Nintendo Switch Pro” since 2020.
That said, take everything here with a grain of salt. Not only is everything here not 100% official, but it’s also subject to change. In other words, it might all be right for now, but that doesn’t mean it will remain so. Things are always changing in game development, and so is console development.
