Rumor: Nintendo Switch 2 will be made instead of the PRO version?

In the past few hours, a new rumor has leaked on the net from a rather well-known Nintendo insider who has revealed numerous details about a probable Nintendo Switch 2

There has been so much talk about a Pro version of the Nintendo Switch that, once the OLED model was officially unveiled, many tech enthusiasts went out and were almost disappointed. This is because the new model of the Nintendo hybrid, released simultaneously with Metroid Dread, net of all the speculations has improved the handheld screen and some details, but left the internal hardware virtually identical to that of the first model (and Switch Lite, of course). Nintendo also recently stated that it has no defined plans for the Nintendo Switch in addition to the OLED model, so the rumors about its possible hardware upgrade have been gradually fading. Until a few hours ago.

A well-known Nintendo insider, NateDreak, has disclosed a video via ResetEra in which, effectively, he does not speak of a new model of Nintendo Switch, but directly of its successor. According to the words of the insider, in fact, the development of a Pro version of the Switch was at one point interrupted and diverted towards the creation of Switch 2, a direct successor to the first model released in 2017.

Will Nintendo Switch 2 really get it done?

According to NateDrake’s words, Switch 2 will support 4K via DLSS (a feature that many reports regarding the hypothetical switch Pro had already confirmed) and that the development kits have already been sent to the most important teams towards the end of 2020, while the “smaller” ones will receive it shortly. There would also be numerous games in development, both exclusive and porting of Xbox or PlayStation titles, and the exit period is expected to be late 2022 or early 2023. Finally, at the current time Switch 2 would not be backwards compatible with the first model, an element that already makes us understand that there are substantial differences at the hardware level, but at the same time the big N is already working to make sure that backwards compatibility is present. .
