Nintendo Switch Pro: Everything You Need To Know

An enhanced version of Nintendo's handheld/console hybrid is reportedly in the works.


Since way back in 2018, rumors circulated of a new and enhanced model of the Nintendo Switch.

Similar to the iterative updates of both the Xbox One X and the PlayStation 4 Pro, the unofficially named Nintendo Switch Pro supposedly offers a range of improvements to the incredibly popular console. With the success of Animal Crossing: New Horizons pushing the hybrid console into more hands than ever, it would make sense that Nintendo would want to capitalize on its latest triumph with a refined version.

Whilst Nintendo haven't officially confirmed the existence of a Pro model, they also didn't make any comments regarding the previous rumblings of new hardware. These rumors ended up coming to fruition with the handheld-only Nintendo Switch Lite and the new Nintendo Switch model, so everything we've heard so far about the latest improvement is looking more likely as the days go by.

We've compiled all the rumors and gossip surrounding the new console right here, so if you want to get an idea of what Nintendo has in store, you're already in the right place.

Let's just hope there's no Joy-Con drift this time.
