The Nintendo Switch Pro, or Super Switch, has been long rumoured, and thanks to the Spanish website Vandal, we have some very interesting info on the new console.
According to their report, we can expect that the upgraded Switch console will be the same size as the current model, but it will have a slightly bigger OLED screen. Further, they also claim that Nintendo will tweak the positioning of the micro SD slot, making it easier to access and will also feature a slightly bigger dock.
The dock will allegedly have 2 USB 3.0 ports and an ethernet port, which is a necessity especially now that Nintendo are finally seeming to embrace the power of online multiplayer. Their report also states that it will have a 4K output, which is something we have discussed a few times before, as wella s full compatibility for current Joy-Con controllers.
Hopefully, though, a Joy-Con revision is also planned because those things are not friendly to those of us with a larger hand span.
As for when we can expect the Nintendo Switch Pro to release, Vandal states that we will see a November launch with very limited units. Given the shortages and availability issues that have hung over 2021 like a bad smell, that’s hardly surprising news.
Recently there was a report from Bloomberg that claimed we would see this console formally announced just before E3, which probably means we can expect Switch Pro games to be showcased or at least teased at the Nintendo Treehouse event.
