Nintendo Switch could present a new model of its console this year.
Some curious rumors began some time ago, Nintendo would be planning a new model of its Switch and apparently, these rumors have gained even more strength after an acquaintance insider have commented on this. The rumor was created from the fact that the Pokémon team is working on an update and graphic improvement for Pokémon Scarlet and Purple on the occasion of this new console model.
After these comments, a well-known insider from the video game industry has given even more strength. Yes, we are talking about Jeff Grubb; he has also confirmed that he has heard the rumors about a new Nintendo Switch model and that, presumably, It could be announced and launched for sale this year; more specifically during the winter.
Nintendo Switch reinvents itself for this year
In addition to all this, Jeff Grubb also tells us that the sources They do not really agree that the new model can be announced and put on sale this year. Even if that were the case, it would still be necessary to see if it would hit the market during the Christmas holidays. It is clear that this is the best time to announce new hardware, but as we say, nothing is confirmed yet.
To put us in context a bit, the two additional Switch models were announced during the month of June, so we will have to keep an eye on those dates to see if anything new arrives. More specifically, the Nintendo Switch Lite was announced in 2019 and the most recent OLED model came out two years later. If we take into account that this year would be two years since the OLED launch, it would not be unreasonable to think of a new announcement.
Be that as it may, this is not the first time that there has been talk of the presentation of a new model of Nintendo Switch. As we have told you throughout the news, this is a rumor and there is no official confirmationTherefore, this must be taken for what it is. We repeat that there is no information from the company, it is all speculation and rumors, but it is true that coming from Jeff Grubb, everything has a little more weight.
