Nintendo is somewhat renowned for revising their hardware. Whether it be colour variations, improved specifications or special editions, Nintendo consoles never really see just one version of themselves getting released. Now some are speculating that the Nintendo Switch will be no different.
GameFaq member ORANGE666 spotted that Nintendo registered ‘HAT-001’ today. To make things a little clearer, Nintendo had registered ‘HAT-002’ quite some time ago which resembles a portable development version of the Switch console similar to the design of what we have today. And to put things into perspective, usually, Nintendo uses ‘001’ to signify a consumer console as it was used for the DS, 3DS and Wii U. The current retail version of the Switch is HAC-001 and the dock is HAC-007 so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see if this new registration points towards a revision or new colour of the Nintendo Switch.
