Nintendo won’t comment on the Switch Pro rumors
In the past few weeks, there have been more indications that Nintendo has been working on a technically revised version of the Switch for a while. According to the unconfirmed rumors, the so-called Nintendo Switch Pro will offer support for 4K resolution and a seven-inch OLED screen, among other things.
The launch of the new hybrid console of the Big N will take place in 2022, according to a Chinese manufacturer of accessories. Despite the increasing number of rumors and hints, Nintendo is still unwilling to comment on a possible Switch Pro.
Instead, Nintendo’s President Shuntaro Furukawa commented in a recent shareholder survey the following: “The Company will continue to focus on creating unique games, and in order to achieve this, we will continue to propose games using a dedicated game console with integrated hardware and software.”
“We are constantly developing hardware, software, and dedicated peripherals, but we will refrain from commenting on specific products under development,” Furukawa said.
Since a clear denial certainly looks different, the rumors about the new 4k console of the Big N are unlikely to die down in the next few weeks and months.
The Switch Pro was, according to many sources, to be announced in June more or less at the same time as the last E3 2021. It was not the case. Today is July 1 and Nintendo has still not confirmed the existence of its new console.
Nintendo Switch console is still selling very well, it’s a fact, and it is also posing a major complementary product to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Skipping the new 4K console in 2021 does indeed seem dangerous, since televisions supporting this definition have become a trend now.
