Nintendo Confirms They Have “No Plans” for Another New Switch Model at the Moment

The Nintendo Switch Pro might not be real, for now.


There is only one thing the videogame community likes talking about more than video games themselves – video game consoles. Nintendo, being one of the most legendary and prolific game and console-makers around have had a position in the industry unlike any other.

In contrast to other console-makers like Sony and Microsoft, who have been locked in battle for a couple of decades by positioning their consoles against one another – Nintendo follows its own path. While the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 usher in the next generation of gaming, Nintendo Switch, on the other hand, is chugging along at its own pace without a hardware upgrade.

While rumours of a Switch Pro had been making the rounds of the internet – it seems like the Switch OLED model is about the only upgrade Nintendo fans will get.
