Could Nintendo be making a mistake in pitching the Switch's successor? [VIDEO]

According to Digital Foundry editors, the Japanese company may have made a mistake with a component of the device that has not yet been presented (we do not know its name).

On the DF Direct Weekly podcast, the editors received a question from fans regarding Nintendo's next-gen console. Rumor has it that the Switch 2 (or whatever it will be called, hopefully not called the Switch U) will have a 1080p display, and if the console is capable of running Switch games thanks to inverse support, then when it comes to image quality there may still be criticism.

On the current console, if you choose handheld mode, games will run at 720p, which can look washed out on a 1080p screen. For this reason, the Switch 2 should run backwards-supported games in docked mode, as that’s where Switch games run at 1080p. The only catch is that you have to use docked mode in handheld mode, as this won’t be an issue when docked (and therefore won’t play on the handheld’s screen).

Even next-gen games can struggle with a 1080p display. Of course, developers can design for 720p, and the display won’t look as good, but Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling technology can help, because if you upscale from 540p to 1080p, it will look better than upscaling from 720p to 1080p. According to Digital Foundry, a 720p display will be more beneficial for the new big N, because the lower resolution will allow for more performance in handheld mode and give us a great view (the Steam Deck proved that), and let’s not forget HDR support, since this will also be a big improvement over the visuals offered by the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo should talk more about upcoming hardware after the Switch soon. Perhaps the Japanese company will do this in the fall, as the Switch also received its offer in the fall of 2016 before starting its invasion tour in March 2017. The company has only officially said so far that it will announce the new console by the end of March 2025, but we believe that the release will be announced By then…
