As per Nintendo’s announcement yesterday, the company did promise that they would share more information about its upcoming NX console today, and sure enough they did. It looks like the NX was merely a codename because the company has officially announced their latest console, the Nintendo Switch.
The Nintendo NX was officially revealed a year ago, and after months of rumor and speculation, it seems that all of that will finally be addressed tomorrow. In a tweet by Nintendo of America, it looks like come 20th October, 7AM PT, Nintendo will be finally taking the wraps off their upcoming console and reveal it to the world.
The Nintendo NX is a huge mystery as no one knows what to expect, save for the fact that we know that the console exists. In fact many believe that the NX is still the codename for the console and it is not its official name, although Nintendo has yet to confirm that, but it seems that could change next week.
Let’s ask ourselves what do we know about the Nintendo NX? We know it will be released in 2017, and we also know that it exists, but beyond that we just have to deal with a ton of speculation and rumors, which is why it is understandable that Nintendo is trying to cut down on that kind of chatter.
Despite Nintendo announcing that they have a new console in the works in the form of the NX, details about the console are pretty much zilch at this point. We know its name, we know it exists, and we also know that it will be released in March 2017, and that’s pretty much all we know as far as official information is concerned.
Earlier this year, Nintendo announced that their upcoming NX console would be released in March. It seems like things could very well be on track because according to a report from DigiTimes (via Nintendo Life), a trial production run at Foxconn is already underway, which unless something goes wrong, would definitely put them on track for a March release.
The Nintendo NX isn’t even out yet and basically save for the rumors and speculation, no one has any idea what Nintendo is up to. However it seems that Ubisoft is rather excited about the NX, and we’re not sure if they’re working with Nintendo to hype up the console, or if they’re genuinely thrilled with what Nintendo’s got so far.
Not much is known about the Nintendo NX, simply because Nintendo has been rather mum about its specs, features, and design. Instead what we have heard so far are simply rumors, and one of those rumors include how the NX could be some kind of handheld hybrid console. Of course rumors are just that, but we might have gotten some confirmation.
Pokemon Go and Nintendo go way back so it goes without saying that their partnership is going to continue into the future as well. CEO of The Pokemon Company has confirmed that they will be developing Pokemon games for Nintendo NX, Nintendo’s next-generation gaming console that’s yet to be officially unveiled. The Pokemon Company happens to be an affiliate of Nintendo which deals with licensing of Pokemon characters.
At this point in time, not much is known about the Nintendo NX. We know that it exists as Nintendo did confirm they were working on a new console, but how the console looks like, what kind of specs it is packing, and what kind of features it has is really anyone’s guess. However we have heard that it will be officially revealed this coming fall.
While we know that the Nintendo NX exists, we do not know much else about. There have been rumors such as how it would use cartridges instead of discs, but really at this point in time everything we’ve heard so far is pretty much speculation. That being said, if you wouldn’t mind getting your hands on one, Nintendo has plans to give one away.
Nintendo hasn’t confirmed a lot of details about its next-generation console but it appears that something that has been rumored in the past might actually be true. A big news outlet has reiterated reports that instead of using discs, the Nintendo NX consoles will use cartridges much like the company’s existing Nintendo 3DS handheld console. Nintendo has obviously not officially confirmed anything about the console and we can’t expect it […]
For the past few years, Nintendo has been region locking their consoles. For those unfamiliar with what this means, basically this means that certain games can only be played in certain territories, which can be rather annoying as gamers would then have to wait for a localized version which could take months or years.
According to the rumors, the Nintendo NX is thought to be something of a modular console. Why is this? For starters it is said that the console will be more of a handheld console that has docking capabilities for those who want to play it in the living room. It is also said that it will come with controllers that can be attached and removed from the console itself.
