For some time now, rumors have been circulating about a possible "reinterpretation" of the hybrid console Nintendo. While we have just witnessed the exit of the Switch Lite there are those who still want a version "PRO" that can allow the Nintendo console an upgrade more in line with rival machines.

The insider who had revealed the existence of this in the past few hours Nintendo Switch PRO has disclosed a lot of other information in this regard; he first of all confirmed that he had attended the presentation of the console and that he was also aware of many details relating to the price, the technical characteristics and the launch window.



According to him the console should come out around January 2021 at the introductory price of $ 400 (probably 399 dollars / euros). But that is not all. Always together with the launch of the console will also be released the new chapter of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Darkness, sequel to Breath of the Wild also released on Nintendo Switch Day One in 2017.

Speaking of technical characteristics, the insider released what he believes to be the various components following a closed-door presentation to Nintendo's marketing managers:

  • Nintendo Switch PRO Features
  • NVIDIA Tegra Xavier (Custom) SoC
  • 64 GB SSD disk
  • Support 4K / 60 fps, 1920 × 1080 resolution
  • Audio: PCM 5.1 Stereo and 7.1 Surround
  • Two USB 3.0 ports
  • Nintendo Switch / Switch 2 game card input
  • Two USB Type-C ports
  • Two HDMI outputs
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.1

The latest news, slightly in line with what seems to also be the Nintendo policy, is that if on the one hand we have the Switch released in 2017 as a true console of this generation which has in its name the characteristic of switching between the console screen and the one at home, on the other hand we have a Switch Lite that keeps its name but loses this peculiarity in favor of an exclusively portable experience. Well, Switch PRO instead seems to want to take that missing market slice that wants to play the Nintendo console exclusively on the TV at home without a paddone that would allow the possibility to play anywhere, in company, when you want.
