Switch Pro release date news: Nintendo confirms that new hardware IS in development


The launch of a new and improved Nintendo Switch Pro is the rumour that won’t go away.

The Nintendo Switch Pro is tipped to have a late 2021 release date, which means an announcement should be coming soon.

Indeed, Nintendo has dropped the biggest hint yet that the improved console is in the works, after confirming that new hardware is in development.


“The Company will continue to focus on creating unique games, and in order to achieve this, we will continue to propose games using a dedicated game console with integrated hardware and software,” Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa told investors (via VGC).

Furukawa continued by saying that new hardware is constantly in development, which presumably includes the Switch Pro.

“We are constantly developing hardware, software, and dedicated peripherals, but we will refrain from commenting on specific products under development.”


Nintendo remains tight-lipped on the specifics, until its ready to make an official announcement.

If the console is pencilled in for a late 2021 release, then fans can expect a reveal this summer, most likely during a Nintendo Direct conference.

If the rumours are to be believed, the Nintendo Switch Pro will support 4K visuals when docked.


The handheld, meanwhile, will feature a bigger 7-inch OLED display for improved visuals.

According to a recent report on Spanish website Vandal, the Nintendo Switch Pro will make other useful improvements.

The handheld will reportedly feature a flap on the back on the device, similar to the Microsoft Surface Pro.


Replacing the flimsy kickstand on the current Nintendo Switch, this should make the device much more stable when resting on a flat surface.

The dock will also be larger, and will feature an ethernet port for speedier internet connection, as well as a USB 3.0 port.

Finally, while the console will be a similar size to the current model, the display will reportedly be a bit bigger.


The suggestion is that Nintendo will remove (or at least reduce the size of) the bezels surrounding the screen.
