Report: Nintendo Switch 2 Will Feature Backwards Compatibility

Leaks and rumors surrounding Nintendo’s upcoming console, the Switch 2, have been circulating, providing key information about the highly anticipated device. It has been reported that Nintendo is aiming to sell 10 million units of the Switch 2 this year. Now, a Portuguese outlet called Universo Nintendo has received new information from PH Brazil, a prominent Nintendo content creator and journalist, who shared the details on his latest Spotify podcast episode. The report suggests that there is a high chance of credibility with this latest development.

Nintendo Switch 2 will be backwards compatible

According to the latest information, the Nintendo Switch 2 will offer backwards compatibility, allowing users to play games from the previous generation. This means that the upcoming console will be able to run older games that were made for the original Nintendo Switch. Developers will also have the opportunity to study improvements and enhancements for current titles in the Nintendo Switch library. However, the extent to which games will be enhanced on the Switch 2 remains unknown.

Compatibility with current-generation Switch cartridges and digital library

The Nintendo Switch 2 will be compatible with both the current-generation Switch cartridges as well as the digital library. This is similar to the backward compatibility feature offered by the Sony PlayStation 5. The PS5 not only allows players to play older games, but it also upscales and enhances many PS4 titles to improve the visual experience.

Specifications and pricing details

As previously rumored, the Nintendo Switch 2 is expected to feature an 8-inch LCD screen and will be equipped with the Nvidia Tegra 239 chipset. It will support 1080p gameplay and Ray Tracing, a rendering technique that enhances the realism of graphics. The console is anticipated to be priced around $400 and is set to be released later this year.
