    Description says that it contains wireless devices.

    What's more interesting is the product code, the Switch product code is HAC-001.
    Here's some previous product codes from 3DSBrew (

    You'll notice that the original 3DS was CTR as per the Citra code name, while the New 3DS and subsequent revisions kept ta similar name (KTR, FTR)

    So, could this be a Switch revision or some other product? Keep in mind that -001 is reserved for the main consoles usually, and any higher numbers are used for accessories.

    Nintendo Switch 2.0: You can play it on your TV, you can take it on the go, and you can wear it on your head when you’re not using it!

    Finally, Team Fortress 2 on Switch!!

    Serious: curious what this could be about. I remember the Switch having two different sets of code names, or am I mistaking it with another Nintendo platform?

    HAC stands for Handheld and Console (well, not sure if this was confirmed, but this seemed like the surest of bets), but HAT... Handheld and Tablet? Seems redundant.

    Oh shit reopen the Hat in Time thread it's on now

    For real though, it reads like an SKU so I'm hoping for a cool dock or something

    Handheld and Console (that's for the Switch)

    As far as I remember, even back in the "NX" days, it was going around as either HAC or HACS.

    E3 announcement that most AAA games will then head to Switch too.

    No, HAC is for the Switch, and most likely stands for Handheld and Console.

    HAT, on the other hand...

    HAC = Handheld And Console (Switch)
    HAT = Handheld And T...?

    I'm pretty sure HAT is for Switch test hardware, I remember this coming up when we first got Switch info from FCC, etc.

    On the old site Rösti said it was just development hardware, nothing to worry about apparently.

    HAT = Handheld And Toy? Related to Labo maybe?

    That might be the case actually, not entirely sure.
    Aren't those SDEV and EDEV?

    In Korea of all places, where releases normally come later than any other region. It's curious indeed.

    Found it, the HAT code name:


    Basically, it's the cradle.


    wait a minute, the one that comes with the console is HAC-007.

    Nintendo starts selling hats, and soon after they'll be selling cats, too, I bet.

    It's the dev cradle, which probably has more features and stuff than the consumer dock.

    Coming from Korea I don't think it's going to be anything really important to be honest. All Nintendo Releases are late to the party there. The Switch released on December 1st in Korea, unless it's a specific thing for Korean Users I have no idea of what it could be. But a MAIN NITNENDO PRODUCT? I think we need to discard that.

    Hope I'm wrong, though

    Is the cradle the dock?
    Maybe a new dock with additional GPU for 4K output? Hehe

    Yeah, seems solid. Devkits after all share similar codenames and trademark patterns. So... If it's a new devkit.... It's a special devkit for korean developers for Switch? That makes sense having in consideration how Nintendo sees future in Korean mobile games being ported to switch.

    It' probably just a revision of the cradle remember they were scratching screens
  49. Gobias-Ind

    Gobias-Ind Member

    Yeah, prob. The only thing throwing me off is the table you found shows HAT003 as the cradle. The instructions I found show HAT002 as an actual dev Switch. I don't see any "cradle" mention in 002.

    So, would HAT001 be the whole package?
