Valve may be developing a Nintendo Switch competitor — ‘SteamPal’ in the works

Valve is expected to be working on a new handheld console to rival the Nintendo Switch, as Steam’s latest client beta revealed references to a new project called “SteamPal.”

In the beta notes, Valve makes references to its rumored project “Neptune” controller and hints that the “NeptuneName” will be called “SteamPal.” What’s more, there also appears to be a games list in the works for the expected hardware.

Spotted by SteamDB (SteamDatabase) creator Pavel Djundik (via Windows Central), the GitHub shows clear signs that Valve may be developing a handheld Steam console, with the update also hinting at a “quick access menu” and a “power menu” coming to the SteamPal project.

Along with this, the SteamDatabase GitHub also shows a line of code stating “GameList_View_NeptuneGames: “SteamPal Games.” This indicated there might be specific games coming to the SteamPal’s library. There’s reason to believe there could be console exclusives akin to the Nintendo Switch in development, but it could also be games on Steam coming to the portable console.
