A new Nintendo Switch 2 leak has revealed that there might be new cartridge and camera features, along with backward compatibility, and more in the new Switch console.
Some intriguing Nintendo Switch 2 leaks have surfaced, allegedly coming from a well-known leaker who goes by the name “Im A Hero Too.” These leaks have surfaced on both Reddit and ResetEra, and they are full of various claims, including some related to the PS5 Pro, but the focus is primarily on the Nintendo Switch 2.
Keep on reading to find more details on Nintendo Switch 2.
Nintendo Switch 2 Features Leaks
There’s almost a confirmation from the leaker, which is hardly surprising, that Nintendo has already distributed development kits for the Nintendo Switch 2, likely to trusted partners.
Notably, the new Nintendo Switch is said to utilize a “new cartridge,” a change that aligns with Nintendo’s history of altering cartridge formats between console generations. Another intriguing tidbit is the mention of a “new camera feature.” This aligns with previous forum discussions about the possibility of augmented reality (AR) being an interactive element in the Switch 2. However, it’s important to note that the terminology used here is “camera feature,” leaving room for interpretation.
The leak also touches on potential backward compatibility for the Nintendo Switch 2, but the source emphasizes that it has only been tested on “a few games” at this point.
The most exciting revelation in this list of leaks is that “FF7R looks and runs like a PS5 game on Switch 2 devkit.” According to the leaker, the porting process was swift, and there’s speculation that it might even become a launch title for the Nintendo Switch 2. Additionally, it’s mentioned that Square Enix has acquired new PS5 devkits, presumably for the PS5 Pro.
To add credibility to the leaker, it’s worth noting that Im A Hero Too previously shared accurate information about several Japanese games in development, and they have taken steps to verify their identity on Reddit and address imposters posing as them on Discord.
Before delving into the Switch 2-related information, the leaker briefly discusses Sega and Persona 6.
Other Leaks on Square Enix and Sega’s titles
In terms of Square Enix’s titles, the leaker mentions that there were talks of remakes for both Final Fantasy IX and Final Fantasy X. The Final Fantasy IX remake was initially scheduled for a Summer 2024 release. Still, it may be delayed due to additional polishing required. On the other hand, the Final Fantasy X Remake has a limited development team, and it won’t coincide with the original game’s 25th anniversary.
Also, Sega has several games in production, and they indicated that a new Sonic game, Jet Set, Comix Zone, and Guardian Heroes will all be released in 2019. In the meantime, Persona 6 is a little bit farther away than they initially believed. They claim that it won’t be available until after 2024. They claim that “black and white” is the primary theme of Persona 6. They also discussed a Persona game with a party theme that has not yet been revealed.
While many Nintendo Switch 2 rumors have revolved around its potential graphical capabilities, the claim that it can run a game comparable to the quality of a PS5 title is astonishing. Keep in mind that the original Final Fantasy VII Remake was developed for the PS4, with the PS5 port mainly offering faster loading times and visual enhancements. However, Nintendo and Nvidia possess the technical expertise to achieve this feat potentially.
