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.”Nintendo
