Nintendo terms any swap-in deal news as ‘fake’

Nintendo Switch

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 for support or to contact our consumer support team,” the spokesperson said.
