For the last year or so, we’ve been hearing continuous rumors that Nintendo has some kind of “Switch Pro” in the works, with enhanced 4K features and improved performance over the base model system. However, it hasn’t confirmed anything just yet. But it could be revealing the system as a big surprise during its E3 showcase, based on a new listing that appeared on a retail site.
Following a previous report from Bloomberg that the system “could” arrive in September, a tweet from Nintendeal recently captured an image over at Amazon Mexico, pointing out the Nintendo Switch Pro in the listing. Though technical specifics aren’t available, it does hint that this is the next level of the console. The listing has since been taken down, but the tweet is as clear as day.
There aren’t too many technical specifics available for the system just yet. It’ll have new semiconductors to beef up its performance; and its price tag could be slightly higher than the $299 point. There’s also word that it’ll have a new 4K display, making OLED gaming sharper than ever before. There could also be performance enhancements with the JoyCons, so that players won’t have to worry so much about drift possibilities.
Nintendo hasn’t said a word, of course, so this is all in question. However, the company has released enhancements of consoles in the past, like the NES redesign with the dogbone controller, along with the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS XL and the smaller, more compact Wii with red design. We’ll have to see what’s in store, and, fortunately, it’s only about two weeks out before the company’s digital E3 presentation takes place.
