The gaming world is abuzz with rumors and speculations about the much-anticipated Nintendo Switch 2. A recent leak has potentially revealed some exciting details about the console’s release date and features.

A Surprise Leak

The leak originated from an unexpected source – a press release from audio electronics company Altec Lansing12. The press release was primarily about the revival of GameShark, now powered by artificial intelligence and rebranded as “AI Shark”12. However, buried within the announcement was a sentence that caught the attention of gaming enthusiasts worldwide12.

The press release stated, “The official launch is planned to coincide with the Nintendo Switch 2 in September 2024”12. This statement has led to widespread speculation that the Nintendo Switch 2 might be released in September 202412.

Backtracking and Speculations

Following the leak, Altec Lansing provided a follow-up comment to Digital Trends, stating that Nintendo has not yet picked a specific month for the Switch 2’s release, but added that it has a tentative launch window of “Fall 2024”1. However, the company later backtracked again, saying the Fall 2024 window too wasn’t official and added that Nintendo has yet to “officially” announce any Switch 2 launch plans1.

Despite the backtracking, the leak has sparked a flurry of discussions among gamers and industry experts. Some believe that console manufacturers like Nintendo often brief partners on details associated with upcoming platforms prior to said details becoming public knowledge2.

Features and Pricing

In addition to the potential release date, there have been rumors about the features and pricing of the Nintendo Switch 2. According to a leak in October 2023, the Nintendo Switch 2 is supposed to be released on September 24, 2024, with a fallback release date on November 33. The leaker also claimed that there will be two different versions of the Nintendo Switch 2, a digital-only version for $400 and a standard edition for $4493.

Another leak suggests that the Switch 2 may feature a new camera function, potentially with AR or VR capabilities4. It is also rumored to be backward compatible and use a new cartridge format4.

While these leaks have certainly stirred up excitement, it’s important to note that Nintendo has not officially confirmed any of these details. Until then, gamers around the world will be eagerly awaiting any official announcements from Nintendo about the Switch 2.
