Rumours of a Nintendo Switch Pro have been flying around for a while, and now the big N is attempting to end them.
It’s nearly been three years since the Nintendo Switch launched, and many suspect that Nintendo are planning to release an upgraded, more powerful version of the console/handheld hybrid.
In fact, there have been rumours of a Nintendo Switch Pro for quite a while now, with the most recent ones claiming that a new model will be released this summer.
However, it seems that Nintendo itself may have got sick of these rumours because, in a roundabout way, it has confirmed that no such Switch Pro exists.
While not an official announcement, a small statement was spotted in Nintendo’s latest fiscal reports and reported on by Kotaku, which shuts down any possibility of there being a new Switch console come this year:
‘Please note that we have no plans to launch a new Nintendo Switch model during 2020.’
It’s possible that Nintendo wants to quash these rumours so people aren’t waiting to spend their money on a new console that doesn’t exist and instead by a Switch now.
If we were feeling particularly pedantic, we could point out that Nintendo specifically says that it has no plans during 2020, meaning there is still a (albeit slim) possibility the supposed Switch Pro could come next year or even later.
As always, though, there has been no concrete information about it, so for the time being, it’s best to assume that the Switch Pro isn’t a thing. That way, we can be pleasantly surprised should Nintendo actually announce it.
