The code reveals 8220;preliminary support8221; for a new Switch model dubbed 8220;nx-bcd8221; within the firmware update. That model name would tie into Nintendo8217;s naming conventions, suggesting something is indeed afoot. Heskin says there are 3 of 5 DRAM profiles are for the new hardware type.

He doesn8217;t go into specifics on what this evidence here, so it8217;s very much a case of taking his word for it at this stage. It could be something as simple as making it possible to play on the Switch console and a TV at the same time.
However, it8217;s not as if Nintendo is a stranger to adding a secondary display to a handheld games console. After all, the Nintendo DS, DSi, 3DS, 2DS and their XL counterparts were massive hits for the company over the course of about fifteen years.
Such an addition to the Switch would surely resort to a similar clamshell design, but it8217;s hard to see where that display fits into the Switch8217;s proposition. It would be somewhat of a regression at this point, so we8217;re very much taking Heskin8217;s claim with a heavy pinch of salt at this stage, intriguing as it may be.
That included the ability to transport Switch games from the console to an SD card, whereas gamers have previously had to re-download their game in order to move it. It8217;s a pretty simple process to carry out too. The company has a new option within the Data Management Tab reading “Move Data Between System/microSD Card.”
