Has the Switch Pro been delayed?
A new report from Bloomberg has pointed out that the development of the long-awaited Switch Pro has been seriously delayed by the problem of shortage of components worldwide. This, according to Bloomberg, has caused its development and manufacturing to be delayed until the end of 2022 at the earliest, so we’d have to wait until then to see it in stores.
In any case, the information handled by the medium is not particularly encouraging. The situation is so critical, that the launch could be delayed even further to the point of raising the cancellation of the project in the future. And the idea of the console is still a 100% undefined project, but that does not mean that the machinery has been in operation for a few months.
The project exists
In addition, it seems that several developers would already be having a development kit compatible with 4K resolution, something that would only confirm that the idea of the console is present and that its production would be taking place. What is the point of offering a development kit for a format that is not available today? It is clear that the idea is there, but that Nintendo has encountered serious problems along the way.
The NO of Nintendo
Taking into account that the information comes from a medium like Bloomberg, it is clear that everything around the supposed console is closer to reality than to inventiveness, but Nintendo is not willing to allow this type of information to circulate with such freedom , and that is why they have decided to go out of their way to deny everything. Through a publication on its official Twitter account, the company has denied each and every one of the points published, recalling once again that they have no plans for a new model other than the Switch or the OLED model.

A post from September 30, 2021 falsely claims that Nintendo is providing tools to boost game development for a Nintendo Switch with 4K support. To ensure a correct understanding between our investors and clients, we want to clarify that this report is not true.
We also want to reaffirm that, as we announced in July, we have no plans for any new models other than the Nintendo Switch or OLED Model, which will be released on October 8, 2021.
As you can see, once again, Nintendo is extremely blunt with the idea of launching a new console with 4K resolution. Although something tells us that, no matter how much I deny it, we are facing an undeniable reality.
