Doug Bowser on Switch Pro rumours: “We are always looking at technology”

Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s president, recently took part in an interview with The Washington Post where they asked him about the ongoing Switch Pro rumours that have been floating around for quite some time now. In the run-up to E3, Bloomberg even went as far as publishing a report that stated that they understand an updated Switch model will be released sometime later this year. Of course, there was no sign of it at E3.

In clear Nintendo fashion where he’s said it before in other interviews, Doug Bowser has reiterated that Nintendo are always looking into the future at new technologies and how it can be applied to their hardware.

Here’s what Bowser had to say on the matter:

“We are always looking at technology and how technology can enhance gameplay experiences. It’s not technology for technology’s sake”.

“It’s how specifically can technology enhance a gameplay experience. And then where do you apply that technology? Do you want to apply it on current existing hardware or platforms, or do you want to wait for the next platform? And then what’s the right gameplay experience with that? There’s a host of factors that goes into it, and it’s something we’re always looking at.”

  1. Nintendo is looking forward for the future on what they can improve for the company’s future. I mean, rumors has been spreading like wildfire for the new Switch pro this year. Remember when Emily Rogers says back in May that the announcement of the Switch pro reveal will come this week. Well good news, she is wrong for the first time.

    Some people don’t trust her sources and find it irrelevant. It’s ok to be wrong sometimes you know.

  2. Nintendo isn’t going to show that card (the long-rumored Switch Pro) until they want to. Yet, this is such a non-answer that I feel staying quiet would have been preferable.

  3. I WAS trying to save money for the Switch Pro (or whatever it might have been called). But when Nintendo didn’t reveal it during E3, I started spending that saved money. Now watch them go and announce it. It would be just my luck.

  4. If the rumours carry on and on, ‘like they do’ then eventually Nintendo will release their next hardware anyway and it’ll be true.
    That’s ultimately what’s going to happen anyway

    1. Honestly probably for awhile. I would argue that most third party games don’t push the hardware limitations of the generation’s consoles. Instead, they just have really fun experiences within them, so even though the current Switch model is fairly old now, it’s still very successful and would be a great place to put games on

      1. In other words the exact same answer every time questions have arisen about this clickbait nonsense since 2017. Gotcha.
