‘NX’ is the next generation hardware of Nintendo
Today, Nintendo and DeNa announced they will join forces to develop new game apps for smart devices using Nintendo IPs.
It is no secret that Nintendo has been trying to enter the smartphone market for some time. But this alliance is probably the most solid step up-to-date.
Even more interesting things happened in the press conference. The NX symbol appeared on a slide alongside the Nintendo Wii U, 3DS and other platforms.
“As proof that Nintendo maintains strong enthusiasm for the dedicated game system business, let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated game platform with a brand-new concept under the development codename ‘NX,'” Chief executive Satoru Iwata says.
It is still unknown if it will be a direct successor to Wii-U, 3DS or a different complimentary system. All we know is, it will be a dedicated game platform and it probably was announced today to reassure that Nintendo won’t be leaving the dedicated game hardware market soon.
Unfortunately no new info will be shared about NX till next year. So it will be a long wait.
What do you think NX will be? A successor to Wii-U, a successor to new/old 3DS, or a totally different concept?
My guess is it will be the successor of Wii-U with new added functionality. Maybe VR or some other game enhancing feature that we expect from Nintendo like motion controls on Wii and tablet controller on Wii-U.
