It certainly seems as though Beyond Good and Evil 2 has a strong connection to Nintendo’s upcoming NX system. The game was already rumored to be an NX exclusive earlier this year, and while that has still not been confirmed (what with the NX itself not having been revealed yet), it seems as though the game will have a Nintendo association of some sort.
Take this newest report on the game, coming to us courtesy of Let’s Play Video Games. The folks at LPVG have leaked quite a bit about the NX before, and their newest rumor attaches the reveal of Beyond Good and Evil 2 to the NX reveal. The game will be announced officially alongside the Nintendo NX reveal, where it will be confirmed to be an NX exclusive, and pegged for a 2018 release date.
The title will also apparently be a reboot, or more accurately, a fleshed out reimagining of the original game, rather than a proper sequel. At the same time, fans left hanging by the original game’s cliffhanger will apparently find closure too, as this game will resolve that dangling plot thread.
As of right now, neither Beyond Good and Evil 2 nor NX have any official media or information associated with them, beyond their existence.
