This will also hopefully benefit Nintendo as this partnership will help them in a time where semiconductor shortages are causing delays for PS5s, Xbox Series X consoles, and graphics cards. This rumored “Switch Pro,” as some have called it, has been in high demand from fans for some time. Nintendo has been tight-lipped about any new model.
