Nintendo has been having a rough month. Notable leaker Zippo leaked some of the new titles Nintendo may have in development earlier this month, and just yesterday the Switch Pro‘s alleged release window leaked as well. One more leak is joining in right at the end of May, with new details on the alleged upgrades to the Switch Pro.
This new leak comes from Spanish gaming news site Vandal, who have been correct on other leaks in the past. This specific leak, according to the report from Vandal, comes from an anonymous employee at an unnamed Chinese accessories manufacturer.
The first two things noted about the Switch Pro are just confirmations from prior leaks, and what everyone was speculating anyway. These are the improved video output, which will allow docked 4K video, and the fact that current Joy-Con controllers will be compatible with the new system.
The first of the new Switch Pro Upgrades is the screen. In line with other leaks in the past, the new screen is reported to be a 7 inch OLED screen. Unlike other leaks though, this one specifies that the console itself will not get any bigger, which likely means the bezel surrounding the screen will be significantly smaller.
The kickstand from the original switch is getting an overhaul too, for those interested in setting their Switch up for tabletop gaming. The new kickstand is apparently a Microsoft Surface-style kickstand, which will cover the whole back and be a little more durable. The micro SD slot is getting moved behind the new kickstand, and will apparently be easier to access.
The last of these leaked upgrades are directly to the Switch dock itself. The new dock will reportedly have two USB 3.0 slots, as well as — online players rejoice — a built in ethernet port.
The last detail says that the Switch Pro will arrive at Europe at the end of November, but with a very limited amount of units. Hopefully this doesn’t end up the same way as the current PS5 shortage, but we’ll have to wait until September-November to see exactly how it pans out.
