Nintendo recently announced plans to develop mobile games featuring its popular intellectual properties in collaboration with DeNA. On top of this, the company also announced plans for a new core system codenamed the NX. Nothing is known about the system at this point other than Nintendo and DeNA jointly developing “a new membership service, which encompasses the existing Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, the new hardware with a brand new concept NX, smart devices and PCs.”
So it’s a bit odd to note that EB Games Australia is accepting pre-orders for the NX. Think about it – a new system which doesn’t even have an official name can be pre-ordered.
While we don’t doubt that it will eventually release, EB Games Australia may be jumping the gun a little too early. That or it believes the concept is strong enough to warrant enough consumer participation at this stage, without an official name or other details. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
