Leading up to E3 2021 (runs June 12-17) we can expect lots of rumors, especially as we get closer to Nintendo’s E3 Direct on June 15, 2021. But this leak came from both Chinese accessory manufacturers and Spanish & French online retailers, who seem to confirm a new Nintendo Switch Pro model being prematurely listed in their sales system at $399.
Aside from the already known New Super Nintendo Switch Pro Release Date, Price, Specs details leaked earlier in the year, we now know the following…
- The portable has the same size, but with a bigger 7 inch OLED screen, meaning there’s almost no bezels around the screen. Which also makes the system compatible with the current Joy-cons.
- Instead of a tiny pop-out stand, the portable now has a Microsoft Surface-style flap for tabletop gaming. And the Micro SD slot is hidden behind this flap for easy access.
- The portable can be connected to a slightly thicker dock for 4K TV output playing with 2 USB 3.0 ports and a wired Ethernet port.
- Like was previously reported, America can expect the Switch Pro to arrive mid-November 2021 before Black Friday. And it’ll arrive in Europe at the end of November as part of a very limited units run, so expect shortages the first year. 🙁
Don’t expect any official confirmation from Nintendo until June 15th.
Are you excited for the Switch Pro? I think I may have to try and get this at launch for the 4K upscaled gaming goodness in docked console mode! 😀
