If you saved money for Nintendo's rumored 4K Switch version, you might want to find another use for it now. The company explained that it has no plans to launch such products without any ambiguity. The only new model of the switch under construction is the official OLED version, which will be released on October 8.
The bad news comes after recent reports that Nintendo recently provided "tools" for developers to help them create 4K Switch titles. Given Nintendo's speed in this situation, it appears that the Japanese game giant wants to dispel rumors about the 4K Switch before it is even considered.
While Nintendo may still have something up its sleeve, this 4K switch appears to be less. It might be an all-new console — the Switch Pro might be a real X and PS5 series — but it won't be a copy of the current generation console. This is very certain.
We would also like to emphasize that, as we announced in July, we have no new models other than the Nintendo Switch - OLED Model, which launches October 8, 2021. (2/2)- ・ （ ）広 ・） IR） (NintendoCoLtd) September 30, 2021
There are many reasons why Nintendo is going down this path. The severe chip shortage plaguing the entire tech industry is one, Covid-19 shipping delays and operating restrictions are just a few. And of course, it's possible that the company doesn't see any value in creating a 4K key. Perhaps he'd prefer to focus his efforts elsewhere, like a new console, or the next (hopefully) big success of a video game. Breath of the Wild 2, anyone?
In any case, this information will undoubtedly disappoint some Nintendo fans (in fact, based on the reaction on Twitter), but most would probably agree that the setup is better than sooner expected. Let them intensify. This is especially true when you are concerned about investors, such as Nintendo.
