Rumors of an updated version of the Nintendo Switch have been swirling around for years, and it seems like there may have been some truth to it.
The original Nintendo Switch was released in early 2017, meaning the console is almost six years old.
Console developers like Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation often release an updated version of their consoles at some point during their life cycle.
Although two newer Switch consoles have been released since then, neither is a technological upgrade.
The Switch Lite is a smaller, portable version of the Switch that doesn’t plug into the TV.
The Switch OLED was released last year with a much-improved screen but no hardware upgrades to the entire console.
Many speculated that a Switch Pro would be released due to the components purchased from Nintendo.
Usually, the company increases its order of components when it produces a new console.
Corresponding Digital Foundrythe Switch Pro was in the works but has since been abandoned by the company.
When the Switch OLED was released, this appears to be the mid-console upgrade Nintendo came up with.
There are many reasons why the Switch OLED might not feature the updated hardware we expected, the most likely being the world’s shortage of computer chips.
The report claims that Nintendo has backed away from the idea of making a Switch Pro and is instead working on the successor to the Nintendo Switch.
It is claimed that the next Nintendo console will not be released in 2023 as Nintendo ponders how to manage the console transition.
Nintendo previously had problems switching between consoles. Despite the Wii’s massive success, the WiiU was a commercial failure.
If the Switch successor is to improve the Switch formula, the new features must be carefully considered.
It seems we’ll be playing with our switches for at least a little longer.
