Wall Street Journal continues the rumour what it started in October (and we reported about it, too).
The Wall Street Journal claims that the Nintendo Switch, which has been on the market for two years now, will get two new versions. One of them would have enhanced features but not the same strength as say, the PlayStation 4 Pro or the Xbox One X is capable of. The WSJ cites sources, namely „parts suppliers and software developers for Nintendo who have early access to a prototype of the machine.” The other version would be a cheaper option that Nintendo would effectively consider as the successor to the eight-year-old (!) Nintendo 3DS. The two new Switch models would be different from the original, surprising the players… hmm.
„You would be wrong to think the enhanced version is similar to what Sony did with [the] PlayStation 4 Pro and the other is just a cheap alternative that looks very similar to some past hand-held machines, say, Sony’s PlayStation Vita,” Takashi Mochizuki, someone who writes for the Wall Street Journal, wrote on Twitter.
If we follow Nintendo’s naming methods, then we could possibly say that the two other Switch consoles could be called Nintendo Switch XL and Nintendo Switch Lite, both coming possibly in just mere months. Of course, this information is unconfirmed, but the source is trustworthy!
