Back in April Nintendo reported some enormous news: the organization’s next home console, code-named NX, will dispatch internationally in March 2017. That is a speedy turnaround from the Wii U, which launched in November 2012. In any case, despite the fact that it’s releasing in under a year, we know not much about what the NX really is. Nintendo has been close-lipped regarding what the gadget will be, yet on account of various reports and gossipy tidbits, we can at least sort out a few subtle elements of the Wii U’s successor.
The main thing Nintendo has truly said in regards to the NX so far is that it will be altogether different from the organization’s last two consoles. “I can guarantee you we’re not building the following rendition of Wii or Wii U,” Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima said in a meeting with Time a year ago. “It’s something one of a kind and distinctive. It’s something where we need to move far from those stages with a specific end goal to make it something that will speak to our purchaser base.” He additionally called it “a next step in our committed device system, the core and essential focus of our business.”
Be that as it may, what will the NX really look like? As indicated by a report from The Wall Street Journal in October, the gadget will “probably incorporate both a console and one mobile unit that could either be utilized separately or in as a part of conjunction with the console or taken on the street for use.” This proposes it will be some sort of hybrid console/portable gadget; that unites those two sides of Nintendo’s business.
Nintendo unveiled that the upcoming, at present untitled new Legend of Zelda game will go to the NX. The game was initially slated to go to the Wii U in 2015, preceding being deferred to 2016. Presently Nintendo says that it will come to both the Wii U and NX at the same time in 2017. It’s like the methodology utilized for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Initially a Gamecube exclusive, Twilight Princess in the long run released on both the Gamecube and Wii at the same time, with new motion control features added to the Wii. For the new Zelda, Nintendo says that “both versions of the game have been under development in tandem.”
Nintendo says that it will release more data on the NX in the near future, however it won’t say when.
