Nintendo Switch came out back in 2017, and it has revolutionized gaming. This console offered both local and mobile play, which is why it was very exciting for every gamer. From what we can see, this gaming concept that took over the world is getting an upgrade at soon.
In spite of the global pandemic, the portable gaming industry is rising through the roof. Nowadays, there are many high-end games that are available for mobile devices, and the latest Nintendo will continue on the same path.
Nintendo’s biggest competitors, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox series X have been released, and people are going crazy to get their hands on the next-gen console.
There isn’t a lot of information about the new upcoming Nintendo Switch sequel, but we gathered some of the important facts and rumors in order to give you a better idea of how it will perform.
Nintendo Switch 2 Release Date
As we said before, there isn’t a lot of official information, and we still haven’t heard anything from the company. However, a Taipei-based report said for Economic Daily News that the latest Nintendo Hybrid console might arrive in the first half of 2021.
People’s excitement is slowly rising and they cannot wait for an official announcement.
Another report suggests that the new Switch will be coming next year and will support 4K and the new expansive lineup of games.
Economic Daily News hit us with a new update, where they said that Nintendo is still planning to launch their console in 2021. They have supposedly been visiting companies in Taiwan in order to find displays for their new console.
Nintendo Switch 2 Price
When it comes to price, we can also speculate from all the information we gathered. Some experts predict that the new console will cost at least the same as the current base model at $299 US. In an interview with Serkan Toto (Japan-based games consultant), he said that there is a chance that we will see a Nintendo Switch Pro coming at a price of $399.
While we don’t know if they are going with two models for this console, we definitely know a high-end version of the console will be more than the basic one, meaning we are probably looking at a $100 price difference.
Nintendo Switch 2 Specs
When it comes to specs it is hard to determine the outcome just because Nintendo often surprised us with new technologies that revolutionize gaming. Many experts suggest that the current Switch will receive a modest upgrade with a significant power boost to the new console.
They also suggest some major changes like a custom Nvidia Tegra Xavier processor, 4K video support, two USB-C ports, and a 64GB SSD.
Some even suggest that the Nintendo Switch Pro will be a TV-only console, and will not be playable in a portable mode like its predecessor.
We’ll definitely see some major improvements in the display. Roomers suggest that we will see an all-new mini-LED display, which is significantly better than the 720p LCD on the current one. By using Mini-LED technology, your console will have better responsiveness, contrast, and energy efficiency.
Some of the information available online is not that optimistic. A post from a Korean website suggests that the new Switch won’t be a big leap by utilizing next-gen technology. Yes, they are working with Nvidia to come up with a custom processor, but it probably won’t include the Tegra X1+ chip, which means that 4K support might not be available for the Switch 2.
Nintendo Switch 2 Features
When it comes to new features, the sky is the limit. Many people suggest that the latest console will be packed with new features. Once again, we might see limitations in portable and TV-only play with a couple of different models.
Nintendo recently patented a unique health-tracking device, which can track your sleep or monitor your mood using sensors and microphones.
Some have suggested that we can see this new technology in the dock of the new Nintendo Switch.
This is everything we know about the new Nintendo Switch sequel. Information on this subject right now is as rare as a basketball player achieving an NBA quadruple double.
So, for now, we just have to speculate and wait until the officials come up with an official announcement.
