Posted on April 27, 2024 by (@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Switch 2

Yet another round of rumored Switch 2 details have come to light, this time from accessory manufacturer Mobapad who has made products for Nintendo’s current system.

Mobapad first posted the information on its Facebook page. That has since been added to its Bilibili page as well.

Here’s the full roundup, as passed along by ResetEra’s –R:

  • The Bluetooth chip of Switch 2 still supports existing Joy-Con and Pro controllers, and still features HD vibration (ALPS dual-axis linear motor).
  • Switch 2 has backwards compatibility with Switch 1 cartridges, but Switch 2 cartridges will be different and won’t fit on a Switch 1.
  • The new Joy-Con are larger and are magnetically attached to the console with an electromagnet. The SL and SR buttons are metallic now, and there’s a new button behind each Joy-Con (location where the button is) and a new button below the home button on the right Joy-Con (location where the button is)
  • The dock still has an USB-C port and will also support 4K image output.
  • The new kickstand also has a damping bracket on the back for improved angle adjustment.
  • The screen is bigger, up to 8 inches and the resolution is upgraded to 1080p.

Another report from yesterday that the new Joy-Con controllers will be attached magnetically. You can read more about that here.
