New Nintendo Switch Model With Better Battery Life Now Available in the USA

59

It seems that Nintendo has started marketing the new Nintendo Switch model in the United States of America. It was reported by several users in the country, including the YouTuber DreamcastGuy. The new version of the hybrid console is identified by the number of the model HAC-001-01.

The latter, among other things, has given rise to an interesting discussion. According to what was said by the Dreamcast guy, in the package there would also be new Joy-Con, identical to the originals as far as shape and functionality are concerned, but made with different materials that seem to make them more resistant.

The YouTuber has not further investigated the matter, inviting its fans to wait for the upcoming video on its YouTube channel. Since this is the impression of a single person, we prefer to wait for other testimonies or announcements to be able to consider this information certain.

In any case, we would not be surprised at all if Nintendo had really decided to change the materials of Joy-Con, after the numerous criticisms addressed to the two controllers for problems like that of the Joy-Con Drifting, which also led to the start of a class-action suit in US territory.

Officially, we remember that the new Nintendo Switch model is characterized only by an improved battery life, which would be between 4.5 and 9 hours, against the 2.5/6.5 hours of the original model. Marketing in Europe should take place starting in September, more or less in conjunction with the launch of Nintendo Switch Lite (set for September 20), a smaller model without Joy-Con and no possibility of being connected to the Televisions.
