The Switch Successor Has Good Performance; Has A Launch Title Leaked?

With the Nintendo Switch now six-and-a-half years old, it’s time to start thinking about the future.


Several new details have surfaced on Reddit from an insider called I’m a Hero Too, who has accurately leaked several times so far. He responded to another leak, saying it was not from him, but then immediately added what he knew about the new Nintendo console. He says that the development kits (devkits) have been with the developers for a long time. Another rumor confirms it: we wrote earlier that a Spanish studio had also received the devkit (it could be MercurySteam, which developed Metroid Dread).

According to the insider, the successor to the Switch will be backward compatible with the current platform, meaning it will still run current games but will have new cartridges (hence maybe only digital Switch titles…?) and a new camera feature. He did mention that the hardware should be powerful enough to run Final Fantasy VII Remake and could be on par with the PlayStation 5. Square Enix’s game could even be one of the launch titles of the Switch successor!

The port is said to have been developed on short notice, which we have every right to doubt. Perhaps the performance is due to Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling technology, so running the Final Fantasy VII Remake shouldn’t be a problem. He also mentioned the sequel, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. According to him, this will end with a new protagonist for the third part of the remake project, hinting at how the story will end. The Final Fantasy IX Remake was reportedly planned for Summer 2024 but may not be released until later.

None of it is official, and there have been several imitations of I’m A Hero, Too, so it’s best to question everything we’ve heard. If the Switch’s successor can use Nvidia’s DLSS technology, the console could keep up with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.
