it’s done now A few years ago we talked about the imminent release of a new and more powerful Switch “Pro” at Nintendo.. Last year, several reports from Bloomberg revealed the availability of 4K development kits for a new Switch Pro. However, Nintendo had assured that it would not work on any new models, but that didn’t take into account other instabilities in the industry.
Nvidia had officially confirmed that they were working on a new, more powerful Tegra 239 chip, and everything seemed to indicate that it would be for the Switch Pro. Other reports have even indicated that it’s likely to launch in 2023 as the industry is slowly recovering from key ingredient shortfalls that have occurred in recent months. However, the Nintendo Switch Pro may never arrive.

Linneman says he doesn’t expect the Switch to have any successors in 2023, so hopefully 2024 will eventually be the year that welcomes a new generation.
