What does the Zelda delay mean for the Nintendo Switch Pro?

Zelda fans have been left upset by the news of the highly-anticipated game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, being delayed. But while there is plenty to feel disappointed about, some fans have pointed out that the delay could have a silver lining. 

The sequel to the popular fantasy game was due to be released later this year
but the date was pushed back until spring 2023 earlier this week. The delay has caused an outcry among the Nintendo gaming community, but some fans think that it might mean we're getting a brand new Switch console.
