Nintendo denies Bloomberg report on 4K Switch system

Nintendo hit back this morning on the newly released Bloomberg article which said that Nintendo had begun issuing developers with 4K development kits for a revised Switch model. The company took to its official Investor Relations account to state that the Bloomberg article was false and that they are not supplying developers with tools to create higher spec games for a future Nintendo Switch system. The Bloomberg report said that eleven development studios they had spoken too had been supplied with new tools to create higher specification games and the development kits began rolling out in July 2021. Bloomberg went on to say that Nintendo was preparing its new system for release in the second half of 2022, most likely the Christmas period.

“A news report on Sept. 30, 2021(JST) falsely claims that Nintendo is supplying tools to drive game development for a Nintendo Switch with 4K support. To ensure correct understanding among our investors and customers, we want to clarify that this report is not true.”

“We also want to restate that, as we announced in July, we have no plans for any new model other than Nintendo Switch – OLED Model, which will launch on October 8, 2021.”

  1. Looks like Bloomberg really can’t take an L as they are pulling things from their A-holes just to prove they are legit and so people can say they are right. If Nintendo has to make a statement on their investors Twitter account it means it doesn’t exist.

  2. Maybe they did some update so that the development software is displayed correctly on a 4K monitor. Bloomberg: “SWITCH PRO CONFIRMED”

  3. Bloomberg is using a smart way of boycotting Nintendo’s sales: they feed the public with false rumors about a 4k model, getting the people to have high hopes for it knowing that when they find out that it is not happening there will be a general disappointment which will hurt Nintendo’s sales. I wonder if Sony hired them for the screwjob

    1. The fact that there are fanboys dumb enough to think that a false switch pro report is an attack from Sony is so insanely funny.

  4. Well not to be all tinfoil hat, but their comment does not necessarily mean there is not a next-gen in the works. It is like saying “There are no new plans for PS4 models”, but a PS5 is being worked on. If the next thing releasing is indeed considered to be a different gen, then their statement is true, albeit falling under the “I’m not lying if I’m telling the truth” category.

  5. We won’t be seeing another Switch system for another few years tops. Also we can’t always believed what we see in any sites. Nintendo and polygon is the proper source to go to.
