A former Big N employe states Switch 2 - ? coming along with BOTW 2 in (now) Feb 21 of 2021 and will be a home console and feature 4k 60fps, makes you wonder what their plans will be.
Will it allow the game carts to work across both systems will it download 4k texture packs to the home system? What will it mean for the portable Switch going forward?

Makes me think it will be the WiiU 2 with the Switch acting like the gamepad but this time you can actually walk away and continue to play your games on the go

Also details about BOTW2 Spoilers

take this with a small grain of salt .. I only care about the possible effects it could have on the ecosystem :)

Making a home-only box IMO practically requires them to dramatically improve sharing saves between systems, so you can still take your gaming on the go when you want with a mobile Swtich. Being Nintendo this won't ever happen so you can write this rumor off as fiction.

what if they implement save sync through network? I know it's something I've asked for

who releases a new console after holidays? Just after Christmas. Legit fake.

maybe they are copying Apple's way of thinking :blink: sell all the Switch and Lite stock then boom hello Switch Home

because Nintendo + good online = does not compute

and what if they allowed it through the home system to sync save data?

A successful console like the Switch only lasting a little less than 4 years? I don't believe it.

but isn't this the WiiU really with the ability to take the games on the go allowing both systems to coexist?

No it's not like the Wii U at all. Also FYI you posted the thread none of us believe it so give up some guy on 4chan claiming he used to work for Nintendo is not believeable in the first place. Come back when it's backed by a legit source.

That's not what you were doing you're taking a 4chan users word as fact and running with it and no ones running with you, and won't.

I'm sorry I didn't think this was fact I was merely striking up a conversation on a Friday :grog: and the only thing I'm running with is the idea if there would be a home console and what effect it may have .. thats it so if you are not interested it's cool ,was more curious to see what people had in mind

I don't buy this rumour. Going back to a pure home console seems awkward to me.

They'll never name the sequel Breath of Darkness, that sounds like a fanfic title.

Besides, the glimpse we got of BOTW2 doesn't look like it will have vastly improved graphics over the first one. It's more of a Majora's Mask thing which reuses many assets to shorten dev time.

Whoever came up with this didn't even try.

I might have bought that if you hadn't made a poll saying "Is this what you were hoping for?"

thanks for deleting my link to the original source I shared to the temp page on Facebook admins. It took sometime to find the non-4chan link...I did my monthly browser clean up, so I no longer have it

What if Nintendo releases the Switch 2s as the Switch Go (handheld) and Switch Home (console). The games known as Switch 2 titles, but rather than a system that is a “hybrid” it’s the games that are switch-able aka completely compatible with both systems.
