Report this on a new episode of his podcast, which you can listen to below. NateDrake, aka Nate the Hate, says he has heard from his sources that a new Switch system should be released in late 2022 or early 2023. According to sources, it will not be a professional version of the current switch, but rather a successor with 4K capabilities, made possible via DLSS technology .
According to the insider, leading developers received development kits for the new console late last year, and development kits are currently going to smaller studios. Some developers will work on console-exclusive games, while others are considering porting PlayStation and Xbox games.
Insiders are also reporting that the console does not offer backward compatibility at this time. However, this should not mean anything to the final version: it is possible that the final version contains software that makes it possible to play existing Switch games.
While NateDrake has correctly leaked information regarding Nintendo before, there were also predictions he made that did not come true. This mainly relates to rumors about a more powerful Switch console. When announcing the now available Switch Oled version, that turned out to be not the case. However, fans are expecting that insiders who were speculating about the “Switch Pro” earlier this year got information about this new console, rather than the OLED version.
Nintendo itself hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but a few weeks ago it publicly indicated that rumors about the new Switch turned out to be untrue. This statement was made shortly before the launch of the OLED version.
