New Mario, Pokemon Releasing on NX Six Months After Zelda – Report
Nintendo looking for a strong line-up out of the gate.
Nintendo isn’t wasting any time getting its biggest franchises on to the upcoming Nintendo NX. According to MCV, which cites “sources close to Nintendo”, the company will be releasing a new Mario and Pokemon for the platform following the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Not only that but these titles will be available six months after the launch of Zelda. Nintendo is determined to give the NX a strong launch line-up and will ready its top first party titles for the occasion. Mario is looking to be a completely new game but it’s unknown if Pokemon on the NX will be brand new, especially with Pokemon Sun and Moon releasing this year.
Support from other publishers like Square Enix, Activision, Ubisoft, Sega and so on has also been confirmed by Nintendo so there certainly won’t be any lack of games when the NX finally arrives.
