Just a couple of days ago, reports were swarming in on all media outlets that Nintendo is offering a switch offer for its ‘Switch consoles’ wherein you could swap your older version of the Switch console could be traded-in for a brand new upgraded version. However, now it seems like the news was fake as Nintendo in a statement denies any existence of such a deal being available.

The offer was first noticed and reported by Reddit user u/DarthMewtwo23. which was then confirmed by a Nintendo customer representative stating that the swap deal is live but the customer needs to pay for the shipping costs of the returning package. On getting a free upgrade, many Redditors thought that you bought a Nintendo Switch after July 17 you would be qualified to exchange your support for the more up to date form, with practically twofold the battery life.

A Youtuber even faked a video recording of a Nintendo representative confirming this deal over the phone. But now, a spokesperson from the company has reportedly told The Verge that the reports of any such upgrade program are false.

“We do not have a Nintendo Switch exchange program. We always want players to enjoy their Nintendo Switch systems, and if anything ever gets in the way of that, we encourage them to visit http://support.nintendo.com for support or to contact our consumer support team,” the spokesperson said.
