Rumors about the Nintendo Switch 2 or Nintendo Switch Pro have been trending in the past few years. Despite the number of leaks, we’re yet to see an official move from Nintendo. The fact is that it’s about time for a new Switch console, and it seems to be coming soon.
Unlike past rumors that have been indicating a Nintendo Switch Pro with revamped hardware, it seems that Nintendo will move straight to a new generation. Obviously, we believe this Nintendo Switch 2 would be compatible with the current Switch games, providing a smooth upgrade.
Nintendo Switch 2 keeps making rounds across the web
The latest set of Nintendo Switch 2 rumors is making rounds around the internet thanks to the popular Reddit channel /GamingLeaksandRumors. Apparently, a popular Chinese leakster that goes as “Factory Uncle” has been banned from a Forum where he used to share leaks.
Factory Uncle acquired a good level of reliability. He had shared several hardware leaks related to multiple Nintendo Switch models. One recent post seems to have suggested that the “Nintendo Ninjas” were doing the ban request. That raised rumors about the launch of the Nintendo Switch 2 as the brand could be trying to suppress the leaks.

Worth noting that Factory Uncle is not the same leakster that mentioned a new powerful Nintendo Switch model that would be launched at the end of 2023.
In any case, the leaks seem to converge around the launch of a new Nintendo Switch for late 2023 and early 2024. If that is the case, then we can expect Nintendo to make an announcement soon.
The Nintendo Switch is about to celebrate its sixth anniversary. Technology has made significant advances. Also, with the new generation going forward for Sony and Microsoft, it’s time for Nintendo to launch new hardware.
With the imminent launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, launching the Nintendo Switch 2 would be a good way to celebrate. But if that is the case, then an announcement should take place a few months forward. Powerful hardware could ease Microsoft’s job of bringing COD to the console.
