It’s time for another Nintendo leak, as new details reveal that an important Nintendo Switch feature was cut before the console’s release.
To this day, the Nintendo Switch is one of the most innovative consoles ever released. Despite the fact that it contains only a fraction of the power of the next generation of games, Nintendo’s console refuses to stop.
In fact, the device still delivers incredible sales figures, and the Switch even outperformed the Xbox Series X in November.
This is likely to do with Nintendo’s famous playlist and Switch’s groundbreaking design. But a new leak suggests that the Nintendo Switch could have had a larger feature, which was cut before launch.
The Nintendo Switch could have had this great feature
According to a new report from Comicbook, there is a feature that the Nintendo Switch lacks that was cut shortly before launch. In a recent leak, we not only got a look at the Nintendo Switch’s prototype design, but other details also emerged about the original features.
In the old documents, readers have discovered that the Nintendo Switch originally included 3D video support. Interestingly, this would have made the console backwards compatible with the Nintendo 3DS handheld.
Of course, even the 3DS did not stand strong on its 3D gimmick of selling devices by the end of its life. And it is not clear if the switch was actually backward compatible either.
But the potential was cut completely, along with the 3D video support in a later construction. Back in 2014, the documents also reveal that the Nintendo Switch screen was only 480p.
Could the switch have had two screens?
It is possible that this limited resolution was necessary because Nintendo originally planned for the Switch to have two screens. Maybe this is why we did not end up with such poor image quality at launch.
Fortunately, Nintendo managed to increase the resolution to 720p with the final release. And rumors suggest that the Nintendo Switch may even show 4K with its Pro model.
We are absolutely glad that the resolution saw a boost for release. After all, the Nintendo Switch would look very dated with only a 480p screen in 2020.
With the powerful PS5 and Xbox Series X to compete with, the Nintendo Switch is already struggling to keep up.
However, Nintendo only addresses the Switch Pro rumor, which suggests that an upgrade may be quite a long time away. That doesn’t stop a huge new Nintendo leak from bothering some exciting new details about what’s to come.
