Speculations were rife ahead of E3 about a new, advanced version of the Nintendo Switch in the pipeline from Nintendo. Dubbed as the “Nintendo Switch Pro,” rumors suggested it would come with an enhanced screen, a more robust processor, and better graphics for an improved gaming experience. However, post E3, the anticipated upgrade failed to materialize, leading many to dismiss it as mere hearsay. But as it turns out, Nintendo did indeed have a surprise in store for us, albeit not the one the grapevine had predicted.

Today, Nintendo confirmed the launch of an upgraded Nintendo Switch variant on October 8, strategically timed for the upcoming festive season. This revised model lacks an official moniker to distinguish it from the standard Switch but boasts several notable enhancements. The standout feature is its 720p OLED display, touted by Nintendo for its superior visual clarity compared to the base model’s LCD screen. Additionally, the new Switch presents a 64 GB onboard storage, along with a built-in wired LAN port in the dock for users preferring stable wired internet connections. Moreover, the upgraded model promises “enhanced audio,” albeit with scant specifics. Lastly, a significantly improved kickstand in the form of a robust flap spans the console’s length, offering adjustable angles.

Regrettably, the conjectures concerning enhanced processors and graphics seem to be unfounded. According to Nintendo’s disclosures, the new Switch doesn’t boast any upgrades in processing capabilities, and the included Joy-Cons mirror those of the base model. Nintendo also cautioned that the new console may not fit snugly in Nintendo Labo mounts as its predecessor did.

The revamped Switch is set to hit the market on October 8 for $349.99, offering the classic neon red and blue Joy-Cons with a black dock, as well as two white Joy-Cons and a white dock.
