Could Nintendo be embracing an all digital future?
In case you missed yesterday’s hoopla surrounding Nintendo and their latest patents, the company has filed for a stationary game console without an optical disc. This could strongly point to Nintendo being very proactive in working towards an all digital future. Here are some other facts regarding Nintendo’s new NX system.
This summary of the patent was created by NeoGAF member, Sinxtanx:
According to Twitter user Tamaki, NX, Nintendo’s next gaming device, will not be as powerful as a PS4. Tamaki has repeatedly shown that he is able to obtain unknown information on multiple Nintendo projects so I would listen close to when they say something. Although this is somewhat of discerning news, I have read recently that 3rd party developers seem interested in what Nintendo has cooking up so only time will tell what the NX actually is. Nintendo has gone on record stating that we will not hear anything about the project until 2016 so we may have to wait a while.
Ubisoft has published a new survey to find out what fans are playing, what they’ve bought and what they plan on buying in the future.
Within the survey, gamers are asked to indicate which upcoming games they are likely to purchase. Here is where things get interesting; the survey may have leaked the existence of the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2. A sequel to Red Dead Redemption seems like a no brainer but it’s still pretty interesting to hear more about the rumored game. If indeed Red Dead Redemption 2 is alive and well, we should know more in a few short days.
Marty Sliva from IGN has stated that “IGN is going to be premiering the gameplay reveal of an unannounced Platinum game during our E3 2015 live show.” The reveal is set to take place after Nintendo’s E3 2015 Direct…. Here’s where things get interesting:
The popular website submitted their news article to the good folks over at N4G but we noticed a peculiar thing… Only the “Wii U” was tagged in their submission. This, along with some other tweets, may be pointing towards the new Platinum release to be for Nintendo’s Wii U console.
Platinum has a fantastic relationship with the big N and they have already released two stunning titles for the system. Is there a 3rd in the works? Looks like it to us…
It’s that time again my friends; time for MVGN to peer into our gaming crystal ball and try to predict what the big 3 will bring to this year’s E3. Our gaming company for today will focus on Nintendo. Nintendo has been in an interesting predicament for the past couple of years and this year is no different. With NX already being confirmed to NOT make an appearance at this year’s E3 and with their QOL project not showing its head either, Nintendo seems to have no choice but to double down on what is currently available.
What will they bring? Read on and find out what we think.
Nintendo NX, the upcoming next generation console from Nintendo, may be region free if the following comment turns out to be true. The comment was taken from the recent Q&A portion of the company’s latest financial results briefing.
Removing region-locking from current game machines presents various issues, so we don’t consider that to be very realistic. However, regarding NX, given the customer feedback and proposals from the market, while nothing has been decided yet, we’re currently investigating internally what problems there would be in realizing it. You can think of that as the current situation. I understand your desire, so I’d like to look at it optimistically going forward.
The quote comes from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. It seems like Nintendo NX may indeed be a region free system. We hope to hear more about Nintendo’s plans for its next generation dedicated console but it may still be some time before we see the system.
Hold onto your chainsaw equipped weapons; it appears as though there may be a Gears of War Collection headed to XBOX One. Take a gander at the image above and let the speculation begin. Apparently someone was asking Phil Spencer, the main honcho for XBOX, if we were getting a Gears of War Collection for XBOX One and he had a very coy reply… Check it out and let us know if you would like to see the series on XBOX One.
Could Rayman be headed to Super Smash Bros. in the near future? Check out the image above and the video below as some convincing footage and screenshots have surfaced that have everyone’s favorite limbless hero joining the battle in Smash. Although nothing has been confirmed, presumably the character would be apart of some sort of un-announced DLC for the popular game.
What do you guys think? Is Rayman coming to Super Smash Bros?
Amazon has apparently put up a description for the February issue of Game Informer magazine. Amazon has listed the February issue of the popular magazine will feature Earthbound Forever. The description also states that the game is coming to Wii U in 2016. Take this as you will my friends but it would be an interesting play if Nintendo made it happen.
