Nintendo Switch (aka NX)

Foxconn has supposedly layed out very general hardware details and specs.

Seems to support previous rumours and supposed leaks.


I was about to post that but it seems that its a fake; just a mock up made by a fan from a chinese forum.

Though there was a report of the NX entering a trial production at Foxconn, so I do expect some sort of info to leak out sooner or later if its true. The PS4 Pro was leaked this way, I think.

People are really thirsting for details. Nintendo should really just announce when we can expect a reveal already. All we know is that it will be "before the year ends". Some are even beginning to think that it will be delayed but I doubt that.

edit: now theres this making people think the NX actually WILL launch in time for christmas, things are getting out of hand. Everything will be set in order once they tell us everything about it.

Please if you are going to lie do it well. Why don't show the concept version from the console? The true 3d prototipe with the screen , bottons and colors , dimentions etc certified by Nintendo as this is a true product? Its stupid to believe something that come from someone than don't directly be a Nintendo employee , or speacker person. Also if Nintendo are close their lips for so long time its because they want to show their product by theirself , this mean that if foxcom reveal a secretively policy and reveal details that they don't are supposed to said, bye bye foxcom.


tbh is the nx looking like what is speculated cuz it will look like crap compared to SNES WiiU/Wii and NES

NX is not a hybrid? SuperMetalDave made a video which made me thinking about the concept. In SuperMetalDaves recent video you can see an Android tablet made in 2015 which was exactly like Eurogamer told us. It had detachable motion controllers a 720p display. Sadly the Android tablet never made it into the store shelfs. Now i think Nintendo won't copy another company. So maybe the NX will look completely different then what Eurogamer stated.
Wubba lubba dub dub.
Yeah, at this point I'm expecting something completely different from the Eurogamer rumour, and the recently filed patents of controller ideas this year.

As for whether it's a hybrid or not, I'm not sure, but I'm certain that it'll contain both elements of a handheld and a home console, based on Pokémon Company's CEO's statement from before.

I'm expecting the final product to blow these rumours and the Wii U out of the water in the end anyway. Yeah, I've got pretty high expectations.
So this came out of nowhere. Boogie, the youtuber, affirms he has spoken with 2 people who have used the NX, one being from Ubisoft.

Transcription of the video:

"Let's say you could play Assassin's Creed once you have your handheld plugged into your console. And then, you could then detach the thing and take it with you and play the Assassin's Creed mobile game out of your pocket. And then when you get back home, plug it directly in and now it attaches back to the... That's brilliant."

Note that the Assassins Creed thing is only an example, not a confirmation that it'll happen (given ubisofts support for new nintendo consoles every time i wouldnt doubt a port being made tho).

His example fits in with the hybrid rumors, however... The way he words it implies that there are two separate versions for every game. I hope this isn't the case. I'd hate having to play dumbed down, mobile-ish, versions on the handheld unit. That would really suck.

Haven't seen the video but it sounds like speculation to me. So far there hasn't been a credible source saying that the NX is not a "hybrid", meanwhile every major game news outlet backs up the initial Eurogamer article and everything that's been said since then relates to the handheld+console rumors.

I still have my hopes up for it being basically a handheld that can run BoTW/console games decently and can be plugged on the TV whenever, I'd honestly be disappointed if it's just another handheld or console just like the PS4 or 3DS.

ed: Boogie clears up the NX rumors he spoke about.

He says its all a rumor, and to not take anything as a fact as we all know but he does clear up that he did in fact mean that the handheld portion of the system would only play a "companion app" part of the game. This is exactly what I didn't want to see happen. I want to take the entire game with me anywhere I go, not just a portion or minigame. If resolution must be sacrificed then so be it, as long as it doesn't make the games look horrible. It would be even worse if the "companion app" are not included in with the games, seeing as they would need extra development.

Of course its just a rumor at the moment. In all honesty though, they have been calling it the NX for so long, I think I'd be fairly disappointed if they actually gave it a different name.

I kinda like the name, but absolutely expect that picutre to be a fake. It just looks something that is way too easy to fake in a few minutes, and in fact, people have already done that. It also look like it was just printed on regular paper and then quickly photographed with a camera. I'm rather sceptical as of now.
Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!
As you said, it's just a rumor, so I always take these things for what they are: speculation

That being said, Duo would be a nice name for it. Short, simple, and free of any marketing issues like Wii U was. NX was clearly a dev codename from the start, really, just like Revolution.

That didn't last long :P

Either way, still like the NX tag and wouldnt mind if they kept it

The NX will never be released because that's what the NX is, it's the ongoing hope of a console that will make our gaming needs come true. Maybe deep down the NX lives in all of us.

Copied from a YouTube comment. Shame on me.

Хуй войне!

That picture was made by someone who was trying to make a statement saying that anyone can make a fake. The origin of the actual picture is still a mystery. Just throwing that out there.

I kinda like the Duo name. Only because it becomes Ninten Doduo. Two names of actual Nintendo characters. Kinda neat. All I wish is for a name that isn't dumb like "Wii U".

In other news, Miyamoto was apparently spotted in Orlando, at Universal Studios with a film crew in front of the Universal Ball. At a grasp-at-straws theory: I think it is related to their upcoming theme park and/or films, which were supposedly related to My Nintendo according to their last briefing (entry tickets for movies and the park will be made into rewards, for example). So maybe they were recording a promotional for that. They're not only revealing the NX, but also things you'll also be able to do with a Nintendo Account and My Nintendo.

NX might possibly be unveiled next week according to an actual investment banking group.

That would mean an official announcement would come very shortly before the reveal, if it happens.

Also, another rumour from this week.

If it's revealed in a Nintendo Direct, I wouldn't even be too surprised. So far they've almost always just announced their Directs two days in advance.

Not that I wasn't skeptical about the rumor. Until Nintendo officially announces something, I will always remain sceptical, no matter how credible the sources. "Luckily", this week I'll be so busy with work that I probably won't even have time to think about NX rumors.

The "more expensive than expected" bit worries me slightly. Hopefully it does not go above $400. So much for the "cheaper than expected" article the other month.

And the 2nd link seems like a lot of conjecture, or speculation that was mistranslated as a rumor.

I actually look forward to mondays now. Hopefully they finally say something about it. Their next briefing is in 2 weeks.
Another news source, this time by Takashi Mochizuki of the Wall Street Journal on Twitter, also believing the reveal date to be next week.

So currently, we now have 3 sources stating that the NX will be revealed next week, one of which by the site Squish Turtle specifically claiming the exact date to be on Friday, which coincides with the 5th anniversary of the Nintendo Direct.
^ doubt its true

Seems like the rumor mill is at it again...

LPBG reports that BG&E2 is not a sequel, but a reboot that will expand the story of the original. The game will supposedly be shown in the NX reveal event and they'll announce that it will be an exclusive title to the system.

Meanwhile, Emily Rogers continues with the october tease with a few new tweets.

Only 2 weeks for October to end, we can only hope for any sort of announcement soon.
Double posting.

ITS HAPPENING


Edit: Trailer will be 3 minutes long.
MY PENIS IS READY!

(Actually, I thought this would be tomorrow, as in Friday, but according to Nintendo Germany, it's actually today).

EDIT: I guess the reason is, that NoA posted the news at 2:30 AM, wo you could argue that "tomorrow" is actually "today". What a weird time to post such news, anyways.
