Following 18 months of rumour and speculation (yes, you read that right, its been 18 months since Nintendo confirmed the existence of the NX and we still haven’t seen it yet) the CEO of the Pokemon company has suggested that Nintendo’s next system may indeed be a hybrid home / handheld console.
Speaking to The Wall Street Journal Tsunekazu Ishihara stated “the NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a handheld device,” before confirming that the Pokemon Company “will make games for the NX”.
At this point, it’s probably safe to assume the NX is going to be some kind of incredible handheld from the future. Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the train. The thought alone makes my pants space feel all funny.
The NX is set to be released next March.
18 months with no details. Insane really, when you think about it, isn’t it?
