There is a lot of anticipation surrounding Nintendo’s new console, the first it has released in many years, and we have already heard a lot of rumors and reports about the Nintendo NX. A new report published today claims that the Nintendo NX is going to receive Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon Go games within the first six months of launch. The report claims to have obtained this information from “sources close to Nintendo.”
British trade publication MCV reports today that Nintendo’s new console is going to receive three titles from these iconic franchises within six months of the launch. It makes sense for this to happen as it would certainly drive up demand for Nintendo’s new console.
It’s unclear what the new Mario game is going to be, but the Zelda title is believed to be The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which Nintendo has already said will be released in March next year. This will be the first main Zelda game since 2011. Details about the Pokemon game are slim as well.
Recent reports have suggested that contrary to popular belief, the Nintendo NX isn’t going to be a conventional home console. It will actually be portable with an embedded display and that it would be possible to dock it to enjoy gaming on a TV.
Nintendo is expected to reveal more information about the NX console later this year.
