Nintendo’s latest handheld console has had great success in terms of sales in 2020. It remained a top-selling console for a bevy of months consecutively and has multiple themed editions come out for it as well. However, Switch was released back in 2017, and fans aren’t having it without an upgraded version of the console anymore. Moreso, rumors have been going around hinting at the possibility of Switch’s Pro model to release in 2021.
The rumor this time comes from Emily Rogers who is a renowned marketing researcher and a contributor for Nintendo World Report. Replying to a question from an intrigued Twitter user, Rogers replied, “Yes, Bloomberg’s report was accurate. New screen, upgraded chips. Aiming for Sept-Oct release. An announcement is imminent. We might be getting news sooner than we thought.” Take a look at the tweet below.
Bloomberg came out with a report back in March that stated the upgrades of the new Nintendo Switch model. According to them, an OLED panel will be adopted over the current LCD screen of the console. In addition, a better processing unit and more memory are going to be added as well.
Rogers, confirming the contents of this report, has written that the US-based company is targeting to release their new console between September and October. She continues by saying that an official announcement is quite inevitable now, and might come surprisingly sooner than expected.
With all the horsepower that the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 are packing, Nintendo is finally ready to up their game as well, and make their console more relevant in the times of today.
