Considering that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will arrive in November and NVIDIA and AMD announced a new set of powerful cards, you would say that 2020 reached its pinnacle in gaming. But not so fast, as Nintendo has a little trick up its sleeve.
Nintendo didn’t say anything clear about a Pro version for its Switch console, but hints from the online realm are there to contradict the huge Japanese company. 4K support for games is easily among the highlights of what the supposed console will bring.
Third-party developers are preparing 4K titles
According to Bloomberg, Nintendo has been asking third-party developers to make their titles 4K-ready. This is a huge hint that a new piece of hardware is on its way. No Switch console features 4K video support for its games yet.
Nintendo Switch was released worldwide in most regions during early 2017. The gear is a hybrid console that can be either used as a home console or as a portable device. The wireless Joy-Con controllers, along with tactile feedback, standard buttons and directional analog sticks for user input, motion sensing, can attach to both sides of the console for supporting handheld-style play.
Nintendo Switch is far from being able to run all games available for other consoles and PC, but it still has some interesting titles within its roster: Fortnite, Mortal Kombat 11, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, Minecraft, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Mario Kart 8, Diablo III, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Overwatch, Hollow Knight, Tetris 99, and much more.
We’re eagerly waiting to find out more about Nintendo’s next console. Feel free to tell us your own opinions on the matter! How do you think a future gaming gear from Nintendo could compete against PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X?
