A new report on the Nintendo Switch Pro has Nintendo fans worried about Nintendo’s intentions for the console and what the release could mean for those on the standard Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite. Depending on the report you read, the Nintendo Nintendo Switch Pro, or Super Nintendo Switch as it is sometimes referred to, will be released sometime later this year or early next year. So far, Nintendo has not validated any of these reports with any kind of confirmation or even a hint of a new, more powerful model of the best-selling console.
That said, it sounds like the console may be more of a technical leap than a revision. According to the latest report from a credible sample, the console will have a larger screen and be capable of 4K gaming. If this sounds like a pretty significant shock, it̵
According to the prominent Nintendo insider “NateDrake”, who was among the first to pass on the word about the upgraded console and its features, there will be games made for the Nintendo Switch Pro that will not be made available on the basic Switch and Switch Lite.
“There will be some selected exclusives, especially from third party partners,” the insider said. “May not be a large number of them, but I know of at least one.”
Unfortunately, this is all the inside reveals. There are no further details or specifications, and while they suggest that there will not be a major concern for Switch players, there are enough here to have many worried that they will miss games. Although the number may be limited at launch, you expect it to grow. And of course this is to some extent inevitable, but Switch is only four years old and Switch Lite is even newer. In other words, it would be a pretty unforgivable conversion to expect Switch owners to upgrade to be able to play every game that comes to the ecosystem.
All this said, for now all this is information about the unofficial variation. Although the source in question has previously been shown to be reliable, this does not mean that any of this should be taken as official information about stone.
At the time of publication, Nintendo has not commented on this report and the speculation it has created in any way. This is unlikely to change, but if it does, we’ll be sure to update the story accordingly.
