The Much Awaited News
Ever since the rumors began making their rounds about a potential Switch Pro console being developed by Nintendo, fans had begun speculating on the probable features and upgrades that will come with the all-new console. Among the major guesses was the probability of the Switch Pro being a crossing over to a new horizon from the chain of the old consoles. However, it seems like the Nintendo Switch OLED Model will be a building upon the existing models. That does not mean that the excitement is any less. The sudden announcement of the release date alone has created enough buzz among the gaming community which is well echoed across the walls of Twitter. Here is the announcement trailer.
The Nintendo Switch Pro offers a set of upgrades that are worth looking forward to. The latest model will also be priced higher than the existing ones at $349.99. Perhaps after the release, fans can decide whether the high price corresponds to equally high upgrades and features. What we know is that the Switch Pro will have an OLED screen which in fact is its major highlight and the reason for its name. Another feature that adds to the convenience of fans is the fact that both the Switch OLED dock and Nintendo Switch will be compatible with one another. However, it doesn’t seem like the rumors regarding 4k resolution are true after all.
