It’s been a crazy year for Nintendo rumors. “Industry Insiders” from across the internet were aflutter earlier this year with news of an impending “Nintendo Switch Pro”, with a new screen, 4K AI upscaling, and beefed up hardware. As it turns out, those rumors materialized into a much less sophisticated upgrade with the OLED Nintendo Switch. No updated hardware, no fancy AI upscaling dock, just a bigger, fancier screen.

Nintendo fans were a bit disappointed, (though not all that much, it seems, as preorders sold out almost instantly) but still remain hopeful that a Pro model of the Switch is still coming soon. Nintendo, on the other hand, has something to say about that.
 


 
In a statement from Nintendo to its investor partners, the company claims to have no plans for another Switch model at this time. While its likely Nintendo R&D is hard at work on the Switch’s successor, it might be some time before it makes it into the hands of gamers.
