New Nintendo Switch 2 — everything we know so far

There have been so few rumors surrounding the Nintendo Switch 2 lately that we may not be able to see any new Switch consoles for a while.

But now that 4K TVs are so prevalent, there are certainly cases for Nintendo consoles that can output ultra-high-resolution graphics and compete with PS5 and Xbox Series X.

I got a Nintendo Switch OLED last year, but that wasn’t enough to change what’s already on the main Switch. We were looking for things like a 4K display, more storage space, and more ports for accessories on the Nintendo Switch 2.

Nintendo Switch 2 News & Rumors (Updated April 25th)

  • Rumors of a new Nintendo Switch haven’t surfaced recently, but it’s no surprise to hear more hints about the next-gen Switch in the fall.
  • The Nintendo Switch 2 may have been referenced in some Nvidia DLSS source code, suggesting that a second-generation Switch may be in the works.
  • In a recent Q&A after the release of their latest financial results, Nintendo teased that a “next-gen” device would be available, suggesting that the device could be backwards compatible with the Switch’s existing game library.
  • Nintendo has reiterated that the current Switch has a lifespan of 4 or 5 years. This means that Switch 2 may not be needed for a while.

The release date of the new Nintendo Switch 2

The absence of new rumors surrounding the Nintendo Switch 2 means we’re starting to think there won’t be a next-gen Switch for a while. That could mean we’ll have to wait at least another 12 months before we get specific hints that a new Switch is coming.

But we can’t forget that some of the rumors so far are carrying some weight, and it’s possible that Nintendo has plans for an improved Switch model at some point. Exactly when that will be is still unclear.

Nintendo Switch 2: Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite

It’s not just Kanterman. in conversation with Gamesindustry.bizSerkan Toto, a gaming consultant based in Japan, estimates that the Switch Pro will cost around $399, which is the same console as the Switch 2, so it could be the same price or a different, higher-spec version. less.

New Nintendo Switch 2 Specifications

The OLED Nintendo Switch is related to some, but not all of the leaks we’ve previously reported, featuring an upgraded “Pro” version of the current Switch, rather than an all-new Switch.

For example, previous leaks mentioned a new Switch console with a custom Nvidia Tegra Xavier processor, 64GB SSD, 4K video support, and two USB-C ports. But it also suggests that such a console is a TV-only device, which seems unlikely. We don’t know the new model’s chip yet, but Nintendo has confirmed a 64GB storage upgrade from the previous 32GB capacity.

There are also recent mobile GPU innovations that point to a bright future for upcoming handheld consoles like the Switch 2. Samsung and AMD expect Nintendo to work on a new Exynos 1000 chip with integrated AMD graphics that could significantly boost the Switch 2’s performance if Nintendo decides to opt for that CPU over the aging Tegra X1 you’ll find on the Switch today. It’s possible.

New Nintendo Switch 2 Display

The screen is one of the most important parts of the Switch, so I’m not surprised that Nintendo has made this panel prettier with OLED. This means it’s still a 720p panel and only outputs 1080p (maximum) when docked. This is in line with its own scope, which has confirmed that the upcoming Nintendo Switch version will use Samsung OLED displays.

In an interview with Tom’s Guide, Ross Young, co-founder of Display Supply Chain Consultants, discussed the possibility of a Switch Pro or Switch 2 having an OLED display and the pros and cons of such screens.

“The LCD uses maximum brightness whether the image is white or black. OLEDs don’t,” Young explained. “The power consumption varies depending on the content. So it depends on the type of content you are playing. When it comes to video, OLED has great advantages. But if it’s a bright video game with a lot of white, the OLED can use more power.”

The OLED theory was recently backed up by the president of Universal Display Corporation, referring to the new Switch console. The company’s president and CEO, Steven V. Abramson, said Nintendo is considering moving to OLED because of its advantages over LCDs in contrast ratio and response time. Even if Nintendo is silent about it, it’s a good sign that a new Switch is coming.

Regardless of which display type Nintendo chooses, the resolution may be improved. According to Bloomberg, the new switches will use advanced upscaling technology to achieve 4K resolution. Called Nvidia Deep Learning Super Sampling or DLSS, it uses AI technology to effectively upmix graphics into high-resolution images in 4K without the performance requirements of native rendering. Bloomberg has heard that the new switch will also use a new chip, along with the hardware needed to turn DLSS off.

According to the same report, the new switch will be capable of 4K output if not native 4K rendering and will feature a larger OLED display.

Also, a recent investigation into the switch firmware revealed a line “4kdp_preferred_over_usb30” that could indicate the possibility of 4K output over DisplayPort over USB 3.0. For switch 2.

However, the improved specs could be just the tip of the iceberg for the Nintendo Switch 2. A set of codes found in the Switch’s April 2020 firmware update shows what dual-screen consoles can support, suggesting that the next Nintendo Switch could be a dual-display device.

Given the company’s popular Nintendo DS and 3DS handhelds, this isn’t a first for Nintendo, but I’m curious to see how dual-screen support will affect the Switch ecosystem. Similar to the Wii U, you can play in handheld mode while casting certain content to your TV.

New Nintendo Switch 2 Features

Like the original Switch, the OLED Switch lets you play games on docked TVs, desktop and handheld modes. Neat upgrades include an Ethernet port on the dock and a new pedestal for better tabletop gaming.

However, Nintendo recently patented a unique health-monitoring device that can track sleep, monitor mood through microphones and sensors, and even change the smell of a room. Interestingly, this patented device has its own dock (much like a Switch) and appears to be designed to work with health related games like Ring Fit Adventure.

This skill doesn’t seem to exist this Nintendo Switch. It’s too early to say whether such a device will ever arrive, but it will be interesting to see if Nintendo can improve its fitness tracking game for the next Switch console.

How about the Nintendo Switch Pro?

For a while, the so-called Nintendo Switch Pro was called the successor to the original Switch. However, the Nintendo Switch OLED appeared, improving some of the original Switch, but not performance. This means there are still rumors that a “Pro” version may be in the works.

However, Nintendo has stated that it will not. That said, the rumors and alleged leaks we’ve heard so far are for the 2nd Gen Switch, not the midgen upgrade. There is no easy way to get a confirmation here, so be sure to bring your guts. We know that an upgraded Switch console is in the works. Whether it’s called a Switch Pro or the Switch 2 might be debatable.

What we expect from Nintendo Switch 2

Why we want the Nintendo Switch 2

Having said all of this, we still hope Nintendo will speed up and add 4K at some point. The Nintendo Switch is the absolute joy of a system powered by some of the best games Nintendo has ever released. However, the hardware is showing its limits more than three years after release, especially when porting important third-party games.

Kotaku’s Ethan Gach gets his hands on a new switchport from Outer Worlds. This port is “too bad looking on the Switch, I’d say it should remain, even for those who have no other way. Away”. Based on Gach’s screenshots, the ports look incredibly blurry and framerate drops. Players had similar problems with ports like Pillars of Eternity and Wasteland 2.

Nintendo games like Breath of the Wild and Animal Crossing: New Horizons are optimized to look and run great on the Switch, but the console seems to have issues with AAA games. This can be especially difficult for Nintendo, especially as the next-generation third-party games in development for the PS5 and Xbox Series X may have higher graphics requirements than ever before.

Nintendo doesn’t necessarily need a top gaming PC or a system as powerful as Sony’s and Microsoft’s latest consoles (and the Switch performs well on PS4 and Xbox One), but OLED panels can make Nintendo’s games look a lot better and the company’s ‘s hybrid console makes it more appealing to fans of large third-party franchises.

Should I wait for the Nintendo Switch 2?

If you’ve been waiting for 4K, you might be disappointed, but if you’ve been wanting a better screen for gaming on the go, you’d probably have been expecting it. We’re not really screaming “Nintendo Switch Pro” to be honest, but we’re very excited about the new kickstand.

Still, the Nintendo Switch is a great game console when it comes to hybrid design and good gaming. Both the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite are at the top of our list of the best portable gaming consoles. So we will continue to support them for years to come. If you haven’t boarded the Switch train yet, now is the best time. It won’t be replaced anytime soon, so you can rest assured.

The OLED Switch works as expected with the console’s existing game library. Nintendo has historically supported handhelds on several iterations, with the Nintendo DS/Nintendo 3DS family supporting the same game library for over a decade. Given the Switch’s popularity, we expect Nintendo to take a similar approach to its current consoles.
