Nintendo may be releasing a new Switch Pro console this year. This is according to an analyst that successfully predicted the Switch Lite, who now claims he has "absolutely no doubt" that Nintendo will launch a Switch Pro with 4K support in 2020.

As part of a round-up of analyst predictions by Games Industry, Kantan Games' CEO Serkan Toto predicted a number of enhanced features that will launch with a more powerful Nintendo Switch later this year. “There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Nintendo will launch a ‘Switch Pro’ in 2020, My guess is at $399,” he told Games Industry. “More specifically, I predict 4K support, bigger cartridge sizes, and of course beefed-up components.”

Toto's prediction aligns with speculation that Nintendo will release a console this year, due to the fact Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X are also expected to arrive in 2020. According to Toto, we'll see Nintendo's 4K Switch release ahead of the PS5 and Xbox Series X with a "system-seller game.”

The gaming analyst also predicts that Nintendo will release another popular title on mobile this year. “At the time of writing, Nintendo still hasn’t announced what comes after Mario Kart Tourfor smart devices,” said Toto. “The follow-up must be a big name, so I expect another hit franchise from the company to land on mobile in 2020, i.e. a Zelda app or Smash Bros. (don’t laugh) co-developed with a new partner. Next year should also see the release of the first Nintendo apps in mainland China.”
