So far, there’s not much information available about Nintendo’s next move, the NX. Tight-lipped about the project, ‘NX’ itself is a codename that refers to Nintendo’s forthcoming 2016 console – which will reportedly run as a parallel alternative to the Wii U and 3DS platforms. Japanese business institution Nikkei may have filled in a bit of Nintendo’s intentions though, recently releasing a piece that strongly suggests the inclusion of Android operating software. From a consumer standpoint, the inclusion would make sense as the brand attempts to crack the portable gaming market; Nintendo has recently announced that it will release its first smartphone-specific title later this year. Some of the knocks on existing Nintendo technologies include the relatively slow processing times, which inundates the native operator – perhaps Google’s lent expertise could clear the way for Nintendo to focus on its primary talent: classic games. Stay tuned for more on this story as we move through the summer – particularly as E3 approaches later this month.
