A new Nintendo Switch – a modest improvement on the original called the OLED model of the Nintendo Switch – it will launch in October, but it is not 4K update that many players expected. Bloomberg reported On Wednesday, however, Nintendo Switch game developers were also shocked: They had been working on a Nintendo Switch developer kit that supports 4K graphics.
Bloomberg reported that developers from at least 11 game companies have been working on games with a Nintendo Switch 4K kit, both in studios large and small. Nintendo told Bloomberg that its information is “inaccurate” but did not elaborate further.
Reports of an updated Nintendo Switch model that supports 4K graphics have been around for a while; Bloomberg said In May, hardware to be released in October will have 4K resolution when docked. Nintendo reportedly changed the design due to a “component shortage” stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Bloomberg, and Nintendo only changed its design. after delivering 4K compatible kits to developers working on new games.
Dev kits are often distributed to game developers long before launch. These special consoles have the development tools necessary to create games.
Developers working on Nintendo Switch games told Bloomberg that they expect their 4K Switch games to come out sometime in 2022, “during or after the second half of next year.” Bloomberg reported that a Nintendo Switch 4K is not expected to ship until 2022 “at the earliest.”
Nintendo has not responded to Polygon’s request for comment.
