nintendo-hh-patent

Nintendo has filed a new patent for a single screened handheld device, presumably for the handheld portion for the NX. Twitter user ZhugeEX spotted the new trademark filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patent describes a “handheld information processing apparatus” that features a single screen which comes with a touchscreen. The device features built-in speakers and a vibration system to provide a “higher sense of immersion.”

Interesting to say the least. Will Nintendo break away from its two screened design? What do you guys think?

The upcoming edition of Game Informer magazine will feature two of E3’s biggest games; The Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild and the all new God of War game. Both games made a huge splash at this year’s E3 and we can’t wait to get the magazine in the mail. The covers themselves are pretty attractive and I am hoping I get the one that features Link (although I won’t be too disappointed if I end up with Kratos).

Check out the magazine covers and let us know which one you want.
