Nintendo reportedly showcased tech demos for the Nintendo Switch 2 at Gamescom behind closed doors, according to Eurogamer, and VGC confirmed this information with their own sources.

According to Eurogamer, Nintendo conducted developer presentations for the upcoming Switch successor, offering a sneak peek at the capabilities of this next-gen console. One of the most notable demos showcased was a revamped version of the beloved title “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” specifically optimized to use the full potential of the Switch 2’s improved hardware.

The demo had improved framerates and resolutions while targeting the Switch successor’s specifications. However, it’s important to note that this demonstration was purely technical, and there’s no indication that the game will be re-released.

VGC, a respected source in the gaming industry, corroborated Eurogamer’s reports of Nintendo’s Switch 2 tech demos at Gamescom 2023. They reported that Nintendo showcased Epic Games’ remarkable “The Matrix Awakens” Unreal Engine 5 tech demo, originally designed to showcase the power of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in 2021, running on the Switch successors’s target specs.

Also, the Switch 2 demo utilized Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling technology, enabling advanced ray tracing and visuals that rival those of current-gen consoles. Well, Nintendo’s patent filings in 2020, later made public in 2021, hinted at potential AI upscaling technology, aligning with the capabilities demonstrated in these Switch 2 tech demos.

Nintendo Switch 2’s release date and speculations

Nintendo has remained tight-lipped about its plans for the Switch 2’s official release date. Still, as rumors continue to swirl, a recent report suggests that the console might arrive in the latter part of 2024. Development kits for the Switch 2 have already found their way into the hands of key partners, aligning with previous insider information that Nintendo aims to launch the system as soon as possible.

Facing projected declines in both hardware and software sales for the Nintendo Switch in 2023, a new device could reinvigorate the company’s financial outlook.

Dr. Serkan Toto, a Tokyo-based industry consultant, shared his insights, stating, “I would generally say that looking at Nintendo’s financials, it seems clear that it’s time for a new piece of hardware in 2024.” He emphasized the necessity of a new device to mitigate potential losses, making the second half of 2024 a realistic release window.

Wonder,” a Super Mario RPG remake, and a new installment in the WarioWare series.
