Latest Nintendo Switch 4K Model Rumors Puts a Question Mark on Purchasing the OLED Model

Published 10/04/2021, 10:23 AM EDT


The OLED version of the Nintendo Switch releases this Friday, October 8th, 2021, and it is definitely an upgrade from its original variant. The new model will have a 7-inch screen with double the storage of the original and much more. Although it might just be better to hold on to the cash you have saved up, as new reports suggest a potential Nintendo Switch Pro Model might be in the works.

Before the revelation of Nintendo Switch’s OLED model, many expected the company to bring a common feature from rival systems to the console. Many game developers in the industry even aimed to launch their upcoming titles on a new 4k variant. Surprisingly, the 4k feature will not be a part of Switch OLED.

Now, according to a recent report by Bloomberg, 11 companies already possess the Nintendo 4K’s developer kit, and the kit is a common instrument for testing and trialing unfinished games.

Nintendo’s Response to Switch Pro Rumors

The company took to Twitter to respond to the report, denying all claims of Nintendo supplying the developers kit to studios.

The corporate account for Nintendo responded to the claims as a new model’s rumors could negatively affect the sales and pre-orders of the upcoming OLED model, which is now right around the corner. Referencing an earlier announcement, the same account restated the OLED will be the only console from Nintendo launching “at this time”.

From experience, it is safe to say that Nintendo has a habit of not being completely honest with the community. Just like the launch of Nintendo 64’s Zelda games. But in their defense, the company carefully chooses its words while delivering any news or responding to theories. So the Switch Pro could really be happening, as the tweets only focus on denying the distribution of kits.

The sales for Nintendo Switch have been doing great, and OLED is expected to go down the same path with its price point at $349.99 / £309.99. So it’ll be quite a while before the fans get any confirmation from the devs themselves.
