Nintendo Rumored To Be Working On New Consoles: Fusion DS And Fusion Terminal

nintendo logoAs you might have heard by now, Nintendo isn’t doing too well as they have recently slashed its Wii U sales estimates by 70%. The company announced they would be exploring a new business strategy and reassured gamers they were not done with consoles just yet, and now thanks to a new rumor, it seems that Nintendo could be working on new consoles, with one of them being the handheld variety. If the rumors are to be believed, the consoles are expected to be called the Fusion Terminal and the Fusion DS, with the latter being the handheld version. Now it should be stressed that these are just rumors for now, although admittedly rather extreme rumors, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt for now, although they do make for an interesting discussion.

It is unclear how well into development these consoles are at the moment, but supposedly they will be compatible with both the 3DS and Wii U games, meaning that gamers who have amassed a library of games will not have to start from scratch. Like we said earlier, things aren’t looking good for Nintendo at the moment and with the Xbox One and PS4 sales exceeding the Wii U’s own lifetime sales, the future does look pretty bleak. However will releasing new consoles change anything for Nintendo? Perhaps more powerful hardware could help, as pointed out by an anonymous Wii U developer, although whether that might change the perception developers have of the Wii U remains to be seen.

In any case do take it with a grain of salt for now, but if you’re wondering what sort of hardware the Nintendo Fusion DS and Fusion Terminal could pack under the hood, check out the rumored hardware specifications below (courtesy of Nintendo News):
