Rumblings of an upgraded Nintendo Switch model have once again surfaced.
Reports of what the internet has dubbed the “Switch Pro” have been circulating online since 2019, and the latest details regarding the expected upgraded Switch models adds more credence that it will support 4K resolution.
Bloomberg‘s Takashi Mochizuki reported Wednesday that Nintendo has reached out to multiple third-party game developers to ensure their titles are capable of supporting 4K graphics. “Several outside game developers, speaking anonymously as the issue is private, said that Nintendo has asked them to make their games 4K-ready, suggesting a resolution upgrade is on its way,” Mochizuki wrote.
The report didn’t mention any sort of deadline for Nintendo’s request, so there’s still no clear timeline as to when the Switch Pro could be released. But this adds to a mounting body of evidence that Nintendo wants to deliver on higher graphical fidelity, a department that the Switch has been lagging behind in compared to Sony’s PlayStation and Microsoft’s Xbox consoles.
