Rumor: Switch Pro was real but canceled, claims Digital Foundry

The Switch Pro was heavily rumored not so long ago as a mid-generation upgrade to the existing Switch console that launched in 2017.

Reports suggest that Nintendo plans to release a more powerful variant with an improved screen, but despite numerous sources seemingly confirming this – including developers who were apparently briefed on this – there is no Switch Pro coming, and the arrival of the OLED edition seemed to indicate , that another hardware update won’t be on the way for a while.

Now, the gang behind Digital Foundry claims that the system was in Nintendo’s plans at one point, but was ultimately scrapped. There are currently no plans to release a more powerful version of the Switch before its successor arrives.

This rumor has been confirmed to Digital Foundry by more than one unnamed developer.

As for Nintendo’s next console, Digital Foundry says we shouldn’t expect to see it next year.

Digital Foundry also speculates that Nintendo is “concerned” about the transition from the Switch to its next system. It’s a fair guess considering Nintendo went from boom (with the Wii) to bust (with the Wii U) and back again with the Switch, but one would think the company would be wise enough to stick with the hybrid approach , given that it has proven to be so successful and is essentially its own niche. But who knows?
