In March 2021, the Bloomberg newspaper reported on the arrival of a new Nintendo Switch the same year, more powerful, equipped with an OLED screen and can rotate the games in 4K. According to the journalists in questions, studios would have received development kits from Nintendo to accommodate their games with a resolution in 3840x 2160. In the middle, this so-called console was called the Nintendo Switch Pro, and It has been at the heart of many speculations. The rumors multiplied during the year 2021, until the denial of Nintendo (it is extremely rare that Nintendo comments rumors) which stated that all these corridor noises were wrong. Racing Result: Nintendo Marketed the Nintendo Switch OLED on October 8, but in no way boosted in its performance. The cold shower for players who have fantasized to this new machine, but also for Bloomberg who nevertheless continued to say that a Nintendo Switch Pro will go out in the months and years to come. Piers Harding-Rolls takes the opportunity to predict that the switch will sell to 21 million copies in 2022, thanks to the OLED model.
Would Nintendo saw his plans, or was it simply fantasies of poorly informed players and insiders? For the Piers Harding-Rolls analyst, who spoke at GamesInDutry.biz, this famous Nintendo Switch Pro 4K model will never see the light of day. It is even a project that has been abandoned at Nintendo, which focuses on a new machine, a new console that will be the successor of the Nintendo Switch and who he depends on him at the end of the year 2024. ‘These are predictions on the Piers Harding-Rolls, all leads to believe that Nintendo has no reason to release a new pro model after 5 years of existence of its switch, which continues to sell as small breads around the world. It would be cannibalizing its own sales, knowing that the console’s audience does not seem to be in the technological race. It is not in the philosophy of the Kyoto firm to update its hardware. Furthermore, it never happened in the past, it does not seem to be on the agenda in 2022.
