Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Bloomberg: At least 11 studios are in possession of a 4K Development Kit for the Nintendo Switch.

"Employees at 11 game companies said their teams were in possession of Nintendo's 4K development kit for the Switch. The companies span the globe, ranging from large publishers to small studios and include at least one that has never made a console game before, Zynga Inc., according to the employees, who asked not to be identified because they weren't authorized to discuss their projects publicly."
"But a system capable of handling 4K games isn't expected to be released until late next year at the earliest, people familiar with the plans said. That leaves Nintendo at a technical disadvantage to rivals, whose shares have soared this year while Nintendo's have lost 20%. It also risks alienating developers who have spent months tailoring their games to take advantage of upgraded hardware capabilities.

Nintendo responded to a list of questions by saying Bloomberg's reporting is "inaccurate" and declined to specify which parts of the information it was referring to."

Rumors are still swirling about a Switch Pro. I still think there will be a Switch Pro Model. I don't think that model will play games in 4k, but will be nice upgrade from the base Switch model.

Yeah its pretty obvious a new Switch is in the works.

Going to say they're gearing up for Switch 2 next year (Q4). By which time it will be just over 5 years since the NSW launch, which sounds about right for a Nintendo hardware cycle.

The Pro term is a Sony thing, it will not be a new model of Switch, probably a Switch 2 but that will be in 2024/25.



34 years playing games.

 

Yeah, is this for an upgraded Switch or the successor to the Switch? Or will it be like a Game Boy Color situation where the line between successor and refresh is blurred?



^ Nintendo are releasing a refresh model of the Switch, which is due next month. The OLED is essentially the DSi/3DS XL of this gen. This is will be the successor.

I remember that. The Switch OLED is supposed to be the final Switch model.

So... Everything debunked?



Aww, no Super Switch U (yet)

Nintendo has called a report false before when it was actually true, if I recall.  I think it was with the release of the New Nintendo 3DS?  Or the XL?  I can't really  remember, it's been a while and I don't want to spend the time looking it up.  

So I wont exactly take everything Nintendo says at face value.
