Nintendo Switch Pro appears on Amazon, launch is imminent


Nintendo Switch Pro

We’ve been seeing rumors that suggest the release of a new beefed-up Nintendo Switch variant for quite some time. Now, it seems that the big N is finally ready to unveil its new product. The Japanese firm will disclose the Nintendo Switch Pro ahead of the virtual E3 conference which is set to happen in June. This week leaks started to pop out everywhere. Today, the device appeared on the Amazon Mexico listing for a brief time. This was enough to add fuel to fire regarding speculations about the device. Amazon Mexico listing was clearly a placeholder but mentioned “New Switch Pro” in the product title.

The page has since been deleted, which further suggests that the listing was mistakenly published by the e-commerce retailer. The listing joins recent reports by Bloomberg and Eurogamer, which have claimed that Nintendo would host a conference ahead of the virtual E3 2021, announcing the new console.

New Nintendo Switch Pro will pack a bigger display, resolution, and superior processing power

So far, there aren’t many details about the new Nintendo Switch Pro. However, we speculate that it will be a good upgrade over the existing Switch. While games should remain compatible between the consoles, the Pro may offer a bigger display, more resolution, as well as superior graphics and processing power. The Pro will likely elevate the experience of the hybrid console. One could think that it will be capable of running games with Full HD resolution and 60 frames per second. We’re not expecting massive changes since Nintendo should keep supporting the current Switch and Switch Lite. It’s not a generation upgrade, just an incremental upgrade like the PS4 Pro and Xbox Series X was for their standard counterparts.

The new console, however, will be the biggest refresh to it ever since the launch of the Switch. We can also expect a bigger battery and an AMOLED display made by Samsung. Interestingly, the new console will sell alongside the Switch Lite, after its launch. This means that the regular Switch will be gradually discontinued. So newcomers will have to opt between the Pro and Lite modes. The Lite features a smaller screen and fixed controllers, and of course, only supports portable mode. It retails at $200 in international markets. The regular Switch, meanwhile, retails at $300 internationally.

We expect more details to appear ahead of the virtual E3 conference.

    You mean like the PS4 Pro and the Xbox "One" X, not "series x".

    I don't blame you for getting them confused, it's a stupid naming convention on Microsoft's part, but the "Series X" is akin to the PS5, while the "One X" was a mid-cycle update that added 4k capabilities several years ago (I think 2015?)

    I thank the Nintendo switch is old news and something else should be made like something that is combined with the Xbox or PlayStation and the switch

    Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation are rivals, there's no way they're gonna team up and make something together

    There isn't so much power in the mobile area to do 4k on the go and still keep the battery going for 8hrs+…

    They'd probably have to do some checkered 4k and even that requires power.

    Nvidia has a great Ai upscaler which i think they'll use in pro to achieve good results to visual when it's docked.

    When it comes to Nintendo systems they know most of there fans isn't looking for the same system as the other 2.. If that be the case they might as well go 3rd party.

    Seeing as Nintendo did ask nvidia to stop making the SOS for the OG switch and they put in that AMOLED order to Sammy.. If safe to say, it will be getting a graphical update in dock mode, to go along with the 1080p amoled.

    At most they'll probably bump the price to 349 or keep it at the same 299. 400 for a non new gen system would be stretching it, even by Nintendo standard 😆🤣

    You should look into the nvidia shield portable then. It sounds like exactly what you're looking for.

    And I'm over here still rocking my Nvidia shield potable from 2013 playing biomutant on public transportation in 4k.

    Nintendo makes 10 times the money sega makes. Sega is a only a publisher now, that just makes sh¡t games for all the consoles and pc. They are a failed company.

    Everyone is confused with the names, because Microsoft are a bunch of idiots apparently… (like who names the 3 console "Xbox ONE", just dumb) Xbox should have just stuck with a more conventional naming sense… xbox, xbox 2, xbox 3, xbox 4… and so on. But I actually think they should have used roman numerials, it just sounds cool, different, and would have stood out away from Playstation. So this newest generation out right now would be called Xbox IV (or 4), and they will eventually come out with an "S" model… because they always do, so it'd be called "Xbox IV: Slim Series", and the pro model they always eventually release just looks better as "Xbox IV: X Series". More streamlined and less confusing naming sense.

    They do realize that Amazon is like eBay now. Seller can post items for sell that Amazon has no involvement in. All it takes is signing up for a seller account. This posting could have been someone trying to pull a scam job and Amazon caught it and took it down.

    That's The Touryst by Shinen, it's a strange platformer action adventure and they also made Fast RMX, one of the switches launch games. They are masters of Nintendo hardware and tend to get very high resolution and stable 60fps in their games.
