When looking at the top-selling console for the 9th generation of console hardware, many would guess the PlayStation 5 is in the lead. However, the reality is that the Nintendo Switch is in the same ballpark as Xbox Series & PS5 as it started ahead in 2017. It wasn’t until 2020 that competitors joined the race. But despite the lacking power of the Nintendo Switch, it has recorded more than 111 million units sold as of this August.

But, is there some version of a “Switch Pro” out there? Well, according to Nintendo there isn’t. In a statement last September via Twitter, corporate Nintendo denounced ongoing reports of such a device existing. Howbeit, when tearing apart the Nintendo Switch OLED Model, it was discovered the new system was provided an HDMI 2.0 port which is compatible with 4K output.

Now according to a new job listing for Creatures Inc, there is potentially more evidence a new system is on the way. For those unfamiliar, Creatures Inc is a developer ties to the Pokémon since its inception and has worked on countless titles as it stands to be the co-owner of the franchise alongside GameFreak.

“Pokémon model/motion data production for the ‘Pokémon’ series, Pokémon-related games such as the ‘Pokémon Ranger’ series, the ‘Poképark’ series, and ‘Detective Pikachu’ and smartphone applications Video production for ‘Odoru: Pokémon Ongakutai’, ‘aDanza’, NHK’s ‘Minna no Uta’, Pokémon Kids Channel, etc., and other research and development with an eye on next-generation hardware,” the listing reads through an automatic translator.

What is more interesting is how the job posting references older subseries like Pokémon Ranger & Poképark as both remain dormant for roughly a decade. Even more is the nod to Detective Pikachu. As many understand, a sequel is in development, but details on the project has not surfaced since its unveiling at the time.

What are your thoughts on potentially nodding to a new Nintendo console?
