As part of the ongoing wave of AI-related reveals at CES 2024, Altec Lansing revealed an artificial intelligence-powered successor to GameShark called AI Shark. More interestingly, the press release revealing this software claims that Nintendo Switch 2 will launch in September 2024.
“Formerly known as GameShark, AI Shark is set to redefine the gaming landscape with its revolutionary AI-enhanced technology,” Altec Lansing explains in a press release. “The innovative gaming software is set to mark a significant leap forward in the gaming experience, bringing enhanced gameplay for beginner-level users. The official launch is planned to coincide with the Nintendo Switch 2 in September 2024.”
Altec Lansing declaring that is very odd, considering Nintendo has not confirmed the name of its next console or the release window for it. That means that Altec Lansing either revealed this release window and name information earlier than it was supposed to, or is just speculating on the name and release window of Nintendo’s next device in order to drum up hype for its AI product.
Digital Trends has reached out to both Altec Lansing and Nintendo to confirm the accuracy of the press release. We’ll provide an update when they respond.
As for what AI Shark is, Altec Lansing says it’ll “utilize exclusive XGPT technology and real-time TPU acceleration to elevate users’ gaming experiences by providing personalized hints and assistance that keep up with fast-paced, competitive gaming.” The press release unveiling AI Shark does not explain what data set it will pull from in order to give players that advice, so we’ve also asked Altec Lansing for clarification on that.
Regardless, if what Altec Lansing says is true, then Nintendo Switch 2 might be hitting store shelves as soon as September 2024. Definitely take that with a grain of salt for now, though.
