Nintendo might be developing a new 4K Switch variant

Nintendo might be currently developing a new variant of switch that would be a 4K-capable hybrid console. Nintendo released Switch OLED earlier this month, and it seems likely they won’t stop just here. Some industry experts also noted that Switch OLED was initially intended to be the Pro model, but the plan did not work out because of the global chip shortage.

YouTuber Nate The Hate claims that this 4K model that has been distributed to game developers will supposedly be the successor to Switch, the Switch 2. This new console could release anytime soon between holidays 2022 or early 2023. This model would be powered by Nvidia’s DLSS technology, allowing games to run at 4K.

Developers have already started working on exclusive titles for the new Switch model, and these titles might also be ported to Xbox and PlayStation later.
