Nintendo NX Is A “Reboot” For The Company, 720p Screen Is “Very Highly Likely”; Possible Release Date Leaked
September is almost over now, and we still haven't heard anything concrete about the Nintendo NX, Nintendo's new console which is supposed to launch this March in all regions. Previous rumors suggest that the console is going to be a brand new concept that hasn't been explored in the past, and the words from a developer seem to confirm this.
A few hours, IGN talked about the currently known Nintendo NX rumors in its Nintendo Video Chat. One of IGN's founders, Peer Schneider, also took part in the chat, confirmed that he talked with a developer about the NX, and he's been told that the console is a "reboot" for Nintendo, referring to the console supposedly using carts as rumored. Peer also added that the 720p resolution for the screen is "very credible" and "very highly likely", and that the detachable controllers use IR and that they're not the main way to control games. Regarding the detachable controllers, Peer Schneider also heard that they are very cheap, in the vein of the Wii nunchuck.
As already mentioned, Nintendo announced that the NX will be released during March in all regions, but a precise release date has yet to be confirmed. However, it seems like the console might be released at the beginning of the month, on March 4th to be precise, as Nintendo France leaked the release date for the Zelda Breath of the Wild amiibo figures, which are supposed to release alongside the game. There's always the chance that Breath of the Wild Wii U may release before the NX version, so take this with a grain of salt until an official confirmation comes in.
The Nintendo NX will release sometime during March in all regions. We will keep you updated on the mysterious new Nintendo console as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
