Next Nintendo Console May Not Be A Full-Fledged Switch Successor
The next console from Nintendo may not be a full-fledged successor to the Switch, and instead may fall somewhere between a “Switch Pro” and a “Switch 2”.
During the latest episode of Kinda Funny Games Daily podcast, Jeff Grubb, who is known for his sources in the game industry, stated that the next console from Nintendo may be something in-between the “Switch Pro” and a full-fledged successor in order to continue the Switch generation.
Grubb further clarified that the new console will definitely be an upgrade in terms of hardware. According to him, it will be positioned as a “Super Switch” in order to continue the generation in a way that is more significant than what the console maker has done with the Game Boy generation and the Game Boy color. He added that Nintendo has a lot of subscribers with Nintendo Online, and the company doesn’t want to disrupt its momentum at this point, as it has stated publicly during earning reports in the past.
Previously, it was reported that Nintendo is rumored to be optimizing Pokemon Scarlet and Violet for a new Nintendo Switch model. According to a 4chan leaker, who has correctly leaked information on the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC in the past, Nintendo is working on a graphics enhancement patch for the games, which will allegedly take advantage of a new Nintendo Switch model that will be released alongside the second DLC.
The leaker claimed to a programmer at a Pokemon outsourcing company, which is working on the aforementioned graphics enhancement patch for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. According to them, the patch will come alongside the second DLC, which will be released sometime in the year 2024.
They also revealed new details regarding the second DLC for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. According to them, the DLC’s focal themes are “Hidden Treasure of Area Zero” and “Hexagon”. They stated that version 1.2.0 of the game will include new character outfits as a reward for those who purchase the DLC. Furthermore, they said that the third Legendary Pokemon is a large blue turtle.
