Are we going to see a Nintendo Switch Pro console on the market this year? A little competition between the console game companies? Although the Nintendo Switch is already available for sale, several analysts are encouraging the company to launch a premium version of it. This step would be significant for the game company; however, the industry supporters have been backing an idea like this ever since the Switch launched in 2017.
The impact of Nintendo Switch would be unclear, with the handheld console offering something different from the others. Switch sales could be affected as PlayStation’s PS5, and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X arrange in for launch later this year.
It would be exciting to see a competition between Nintendo Switch Pro, PS5, and the new Xbox on the market sales this year. The Switch Pro rumor was revealed by Dr. Serkan Toto of Kantan Games, as well as what kind of specs the new console may have and what price.
Nintendo Switch Pro Rumored to Launch This Year
“There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Nintendo will launch a “Switch Pro” in 2020, my guess is at $399,” said Dr. Serkan Toto. “More specifically, I predict 4K support, bigger cartridge sizes, and of course, beefed-up components.
“I also think the device will launch after the summer holidays to counter the roll-out of the PS5 and next-gen Xbox later in the year – along with a first-party, system-seller game.”
The view shared by Piers Harding-Rolls of IHS Markit Technology is: “No real surprise, but Switch will again be the best selling console during the year. I think the likelihood of a higher-end Switch in 2020 has significantly diminished since the launch of an improved flagship Switch and the Switch Lite. 2020 is also set to be Switch’s best hardware sales performance since launch. The Switch Lite will launch in mainland China.”
