Nintendo News: No longer cling to an impossible, Juan Gabriel would say.
Rumors of the Nintendo Switch Pro have been around almost since the console came into our lives in 2017. From a high-quality screen, a 4k graphics engine, drift-free controls and alliances with Samsung, it was almost said that it would be the definitive console .
However, the dreams of many who waited for the idyllic console fell apart when Nintendo announced its new OLED model. While some said that this was the expected Pro, others clung to the idea that the powerful version is still preparing its arrival. We regret to say that this will not be the case.
Nintendo comes out to deny the rumors.
In a recent official statement, Nintendo finally cleared up rumors regarding the existence of a Switch Pro model and the expected profit margin between the OLED and the original model. This after the Bloomberg media published that the manufacture of the OLED model would cost 10 dollars more than the original.
The statement says: ‘A report of July 15, 2021, indicated that the profit margin for the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) would have an increase compared to the Nintendo Switch. To ensure the correct understanding between our investors and consumers, we want to make it clear that this report is incorrect. ‘
Then they added more by saying, ‘We also want to clarify that we just announced that the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) will be released in October 2021 and we have no plans to launch any other models at the moment.’ Nintendo might not plan to make a more powerful iteration of its hybrid, but the OLED surely won’t be the last we see. Let’s recall all the revisions he released of the DS and 3DS.
With his words, it seems that we have finally reached the end of the era of rumors of the Nintendo Switch Pro, although we do not doubt that there are still people who will continue to wait for him. Also, if you want a more powerful version of the Switch, maybe you should check out Valve’s Steam Deck.
