According to new information from a reliable source, Nintendo could still be releasing the rumored 4K DLSS Nintendo Switch in 2022. The news comes amidst the backlash from the latest Switch OLED reveal from Nintendo.
Earlier today Nintendo officially revealed their latest upgraded Nintendo Switch console, the Switch OLED. The news that many Nintendo fans have been eagerly anticipating for a long time finally arrived unexpectedly. However, despite an upgraded OLED display, fans are still unsure what to make of the reveal.
Interestingly, the reception towards the Nintendo Switch OLED has been relatively mixed due to its apparent shortcomings. In fact, many fans regard the new Switch model as “useless” due to the lack of 4K capabilities and the absence of DLSS.
However, Nintendo fans may want to weather the storm for the time being thanks to new information from Jeff Grubb on Twitter. Now, it could be that the original rumored Switch model is still coming, complete with upgraded hardware to rival that of the next-generation consoles.

Jeff Grubb has given fans hope that a new 4K DLSS Switch is still planned for release next year. In a recent Tweet Grubb had the following to say:
I still have only ever personally heard 2022 for a Switch Pro. And if that still happens, I’ll continue to speculate that will have 4K output with a significantly more efficient chip with DLSS. Does anyone think this is the last Switch from the company that released 6 3DS models?@JeffGrubb – Twitter
Interestingly, according to Grubb, the earlier rumors regarding the Switch Pro could still be true. Furthermore, Grubb suggests that the 4K output and more efficient chip with DLSS is a likely next step for Nintendo. After all, Nintendo has shown their willingness to produce different variations in the 3DS.
