New concept renders of a Nintendo Switch Pro console have been shared online that have convinced some fans they could be looking at the real deal. However, while gamers wait for the Big N to officially announce the Switch Pro or Super Nintendo Switch, the truth behind the alleged “first leaked images” has surfaced.

Renders of a supposed Nintendo Switch Pro have been doing the rounds on various forums and social media lately, with some fans wondering if they are actually getting a first look at the real thing. However, Nintendo has remained silent about the whole subject so far, much like Sony was with the PlayStation 5, allowing those anxious to hear official news to come up with their own take on the matter.

An alleged “first leaked image” of the Switch Pro (or Super Nintendo Switch) started circulating on sites such as Reddit, NeoGAF, and unsurprisingly 4chan (get that salt). The same picture, which shows a purported Switch console with a Joy-Con lying in front of it, also appeared on a number of Twitter accounts. Many commenters immediately shouted “fake”, but there was a similar situation with early leaked photos of the PS5 that ended up being genuine.

Fortunately, it appears the designer behind the render has come forward and has even produced more images now that show the conceptual Nintendo Switch Pro turned on. The renders, created by Shigeryu, were made by using Fusion 360 CAD software. There’s also another render of a Switch Pro on the 4chan thread, but this is simply a screenshot from the YouTube clip of a Switch sequel concept shared by Computer Bild over a year ago.

The images made by Shigeryu, who has not claimed that they were anything but fan-made efforts, have been received warmly for the most part, as they show the expected larger display and remodeled Joy-Con controllers. However, some have also pointed out the presence of the “Nintendo Switch” logo, but as nobody but the Big N itself really seems to know the name of the likely upcoming console, it has been left to u/JardsonJean on Reddit to produce a suitable logo that covers most bases (see below).
