Well well well… If a current rumor pans out to be true, players could expect to see an all new Paper Mario title headed to Wii U.

Nintendo NX in Steady Development Will Offer Something New


How often have we heard that the Nintendo NX will do something different for gamers? Well my friends, mark another one in the books as the good people over at DualShockers have posted another story stating that the NX will indeed offer something new for players.

Nintendo’s recently appointed President Tatsumi Kimishima briefly talked about it during an interview on Sankei West, mentioning that the company doesn’t intend to just jump to the market with the console, that is in steady development to offer a new experience, different from what is provided by the Wii U and 3DS.

I am always interested in hearing what Nintendo has been working on and this time around is no different. I am very eager to see what the NX is and think that Nintendo will put out something very special.

More as it develops.

Big Nintendo Announcement Incoming?

Apparently is ready to announced something “big” tomorrow. Yes my friends, on Monday, December 7th, the big N has eluded that it will announce something. What that is we are not sire but senior manager of marketing and licensing, has indeed teased that a major Nintendo-related announcement will definitely be made. Here is what he had to say:

“Speaking of announcements, I wish I could tell you guys, but stay tuned for Monday,” Baker said. “Monday there’s going to be something… something happening on Monday. It’s going to be big. Stay tuned, it’s going to be good.”

Our guess is that they will announce when the Smash Direct will happen but we are praying for something related to the next generation Nintendo system, NX (even if it was when they are going to reveal the system).

Here Are The Latest Nintendo NX Rumors


More rumors have surfaced regarding Nintendo’s NX system(s) and we have them all listed below. This rumors supposedly comes from someone who is close to the project but still take the following list with a grain of salt. Never-the-less, here we go:

NX is a platform, not tied with a single device

Wii U is still in the picture thanks to good software results for games like Splatoon, will still be the main home console in 2016

3DS is a bit old, they’re planning of replacing it. Some games will still come out on it, but big projects are being moved on portable NX

With NX, Nintendo wants to create a platform where they can develop software for multiple devices with ease, from the home console to the portable to smartphone and tablets. They’ll have a big catalogue available for multiple platforms, with cross buy, cross saves and cross play, similar to what

Microsoft is doing with Xbox One and PC thanks to Windows 10 (that allows to play many Xbox games on PC, which is also getting a bunch of ports from Xbone). Each platform will still have exclusive games

NNID is tied to the single device, but it will allow to share details between platforms, like friend list, contents, local coop games, etc. Thanks to the new membership program (the successor of Club Nintendo), we’ll benefit from the new Nintendo policies in terms of rewards

They’ll show the portable in spring 2016, will be out for the end of the year or spring 2017 max. Specs will be higher than PS Vita but nothing mindblowing, screen resolution should be 540p, considering 720p if costs go down. BC with 3DS was problematic

Wii U successor will not have an optical drive, which will be optional. It will sync with the portable (not obligatory). Specs won’t be super high, but close to PS4/X1 (doesn’t know how much, like with the portable this is still subject to change anyway). Cross games will look better on the home

Nintendo is focusing a lot on the anti-piracy system

Big focus on the OS as well. They hired people that worked for Google on Android, the guys who worked on the Gamecube OS and Wii U browser are there too. Optimized versions of the same OS for every NX platform (think, again, W10), each with its set of specific functions. Updates will come out at the same time, they’re focusing on making the OS blazing fast on every platform

The home console can connect with the portable to send to it its own version of the games you buy, will use the same tech as the Wii U-Wii U Gamepad streaming to do that, or the internet connection

The home will have bc with the Wii U. Gamepad should be compatible as a controller, considering selling it standalone. Can connect with the portable for offtv and bc. WiiMote compatibility is being considered too. As for support, since the new home won’t have an optical drive, they’re considering an external one. Also being considered NNID/eShop bc for titles bought on the eShop. Seems they’re considering digital games sharing too, but this bit is not perfectly clear


The portable will have its own internal memory, which will be expandable

There will be a complete overhaul of online infrastructures, but Nintendo is determined to hold successful operations as Miiverse, extending it even further and making it a central hub for communications by developers and a meeting place for players. It will be even more interactive with the ability to upload videos and screenshots in an integrated system and not dependent on the game

Voice chat and interactions between users will be revisited too, much will depend on the users age though, to protect the minors

The home will be out 6-12 months after the portable, creating the “NX system” that will allow Nintendo to better use their resources in games development

They approached third parties during E3. Capcom, Square-Enix, Ubisoft and Electronic Arts already have devkits. Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Sonic, F-Zero and Metroid are in development, doesn’t know if these are main episodes or spin offs. Zelda is currently a Wii U only title due to high development costs, but they can reconsider to have another big game at NX launch

Prices will be low, 200-300€ (for the home?), considering a bundle with both for no more than 500€

Many of these things will be discussed in future Nintendo Directs, which will have a different host in every market if Nintendo can’t find a new CEO by October

A new 3D Mario will be shown, along with a new Zelda trailer. Retro moved their project on NX, will not be unveiled before 10-18 months

They’ll talk about a new “Club Nintendo”, which will be in full function with NX

Considering making agreements with phone carriers in order to better manage applications like Miiverse, Club Nintendo and the ability to purchase software by phone. Some of these will be out by March 2016

Is everything set yet? Yes, but with Nintendo you’ll never know. If he has updates he will share them with us.


Could Nintendo be embracing an all digital future?

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.

Keep it here for all you Nintendo NX news.


Red Dead Redemption 2 Incoming?


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.

Keep it here my friends. E3 2015 is here!
