New Nintendo NX Metails May Have Been Revealed

Posted by at 10:47 am on July 26, 2016


No official Nintendo NX details have been revealed by the company, though a new report from Eurogamer may have shed light on the mysterious new console.

The outlet reports that the new console is actually portable, with its own display screen and detachable controllers on either side; they provided their own visual interpretation of this which you can see below. When players bring the console home, however, they can connect the NX’s “base unit/dock station” to the TV for in-home gaming.

Eurogamer also confirms the long-standing rumor that the console will return to the realm of game cartridges instead of discs, though Nintendo reportedly briefly considered a digital download-only console. Due to this style of play, the outlet says there are no plans for backwards compatibility with other console games for the NX

Finally, Eurogamer reveals the console will be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra mobile processor. With this processor choice, Nintendo is opting for a “lower level of performance” when compared to the Sony PlayStation 4 or Microsoft Xbox One due to their desire for players to have a mobile gaming experience.

Nintendo is reportedly planning a September date for the official reveal of the console, opting not to show it at this year’s E3 in favor of focusing on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild instead.

The Nintendo NX is currently slated to debut in stores globally on March 2017.
