As the biggest gaming industry event approaches, Bloomberg is reporting that news of an upgraded Nintendo Switch console is about to drop. The publication is stating, thanks to sources familiar with the matter, Nintendo will be assembling the new model as early as July and the improved console is set to hit shelves between September and October of this year. Interestingly, it’s also mentioned that this new ‘Switch Pro’ is set to supersede the current original model at some point and we can expect the Switch we know and love to be eventually phased out, according to the report.
In terms of pricing, Bloomberg is reporting that the upgraded Switch will likely come with a higher price tag thanks to the global semi-conductor shortage and it will be sold alongside the already available Nintendo Switch Lite. It’s been previously discussed that the new model will house a new 7 inch OLED screen and have 4k capabilities; read our previous post on that here.
With E3 just around the corner, it’s not completely out of the realms of possibility that we would hear news of this new and improved revision of Nintendo’s hybrid console. But, as always, we’ll have to wait until we hear from Nintendo.
