According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, we have new news in Nintendo’s Wii Us successor, the Nintendo NX. Will we get a hybrid handheld/console?
The exact shape of the NX hardware isn’t yet clear. People familiar with the development plans said Nintendo would likely include both a console and at least one mobile unit that could either be used in conjunction with the console or taken on the road for separate use. They also said Nintendo would aim to put industry-leading chips in the NX devices, after criticism that the Wii U’s capabilities didn’t match those of competitors.
NX platform is “likely to have... more than two devices and powerful chips.
There are rumors that we could see Nintendo NX as soon as 2016, which would make sense for the new The Legend of Zelda game that was recently delayed.
