Nintendo Switch Pro: Nintendo boss comments on the rumors about a new model

Nintendo Switch Pro

The fact that Nintendo should work on a Switch Pro has been circulating for months through the vastness of the Internet - but Nintendo has not yet announced a technically upgraded Switch. Even around E3 2021, the group did not show a new console; at least this rumor has not been confirmed. In a recent interview with the Washington Post, Nintendo America President Doug Bowser took up the current speculations, but continued to keep a low profile on a possible Nintendo Switch Pro.

Accordingly, one constantly looks at new technologies and how they improve the gaming experience. However, it is by no means exclusively about technology. "It's about how technology can actually improve the gaming experience," added the Nintendo America boss. There is also the question of where this technology will ultimately be used. "Do you want to use it on the currently available hardware or platform or wait for the next platform? And what is the right gaming experience then?" Continues Bowser and adds that there are a number of factors that play a role.

Nintendo finally responds to Switch Pro rumors

Doug Bowser, president of the US division of Nintendo, has commented on recent rumors that the company is going to release a Pro version of the Nintendo Switch this year. Speaking to The Washington Post, he talked about how good the console is in its fifth year since launch, but technological advancement is something that is always on the mind of the company.

“We are always looking at technology and how technology can enhance gameplay experiences. It’s not technology for technology’s sake,” Bowser said.

“It’s how specifically can technology enhance a gameplay experience. And then where do you apply that technology? Do you want to apply it on current existing hardware or platforms, or do you want to wait for the next platform? And then what’s the right gameplay experience with that? There’s a host of factors that goes into it, and it’s something we’re always looking at.”

The comments from the president of Nintendo of America follow a recent Bloomberg report claiming that the company intends to announce a new Switch model soon. Last month, the publication calim that the Switch Pro console will sell for over $ 299, replace the existing model, and be available in September or October this year. Bloomberg also said the new Nintendo Switch could be announced ahead of the Nintendo Direct E3 2021 digital show last week, but that didn’t happen.
