We still don’t know what the NX is, but thanks to what I can only hope are well sourced leaks, we’re learning more and more about it. Take this newest one, for instance- French site Gameblog has released some more details which have been translated by the fine folks over at NeoGAF. And these details bring some new information about the NX to light.

The details are sourced to industry insiders, all of whom apparently have development kits for the console. There are about 20 games for the NX confirmed to be in development at the moment, and there is more to the NX than just its central handheld-console hybrid ‘gimmick.’ Essentially implying that there are more surprises to do with the new system that haven’t yet been revealed.

The leaks also note that the system apparently interacts with smartphone games in some form, which is in line with earlier reports from The Wall Street Journal. VR support is also mentioned, though it sounds like early tests on that front haven’t been too encouraging.

Developers are apparently fans of the development tools for the NX, and porting from PC, Xbox One, and PS4 should be extremely easy, in spite of the NX using a different architecture. A lot of third parties are apparently in the process of porting games over to the system, with Final Fantasy 15 and Final Fantasy 7 Remake having been named as two games coming to the system. Developers mentioned as being on board with the NX include Ubisoft, Square Enix, Capcom, and Platinum Games.

On Nintendo’s own end, they are in the process of porting multiple N64, Wii, and Wii U games, including Splatoon, Mario Kart 8, Smash Bros., and for some reason, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

All of this sounds too good to be true- and even if it is, at this point I will just repeat what I’ve been saying for a while now. As far as the NX goes, Nintendo needs to announce what the hell it is already, or more and more people are going to end up losing interest. Yours truly included.

    Great read. But losing interest is a normality on such scenarios and thats all good but let’s all be honest nintendo never ever gave a solid date for showing it thet said fall it is now fall and rumours suggest its reveal is this week. People getting angry about a reveal that was never given a solid date is kinda funny. But losing interest and then when its revealed get all excited ans go buy it anyway so eother way whenever Nintendo reveals it peeps going to be interested all over again. Its like waiting for a game and it gets delayed, zelda for instance botw ppl didnt say oh its been delayed twice im not buying it when it comes out. Yes Nintedno need to reveal it for sure. But aint no real gamer gonna not buy it because nintendo didnt announce it when them gamers wanted a reveal. Ninteno is a multi billion dollar company and they have thier plans wether or not we think its right or wrong they have their plans.

  • it could do vr, if it’s using nvidia tegra x2 which was base around the pascal gpus. nintendo have to make easier for 3rd party to port their game, making it hard will turn 3rd parties away, i think ps4, xbox and pc do use different architecture but still base on x86. if nintendo play it right, it’ll help them come back from the wii u failures.
