It’s important to note that while there are no plans for a model with significant changes like the OLED and Lite, Yes we will see a special edition of the Switch. Let’s remember that this month is a switch with a design inspired Splatoon 3But inside it will have the same OLED we already know.
On a related note, these are the Switch’s sales last quarter. Similarly, Mario Strikers: Battle League y Nintendo Switch Sports They are a best seller.
Considering that more than five years have passed since the Switch launched, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to think that we’ll see a new hardware version next year. We can only wait and see if the Pro exists or we will see a completely different model.
