Nintendo fans all over the world are really excited for the upcoming Nintendo NX, despite Nintendo having revealed very little about its upcoming new system. Very few titles have been confirmed for the console as of now, but it seems like things will be even better than anticipated.

Earlier today, MCV received some information from unnamed sources regarding titles coming to Nintendo NX. According to these sources, developer Game Freak is already working on a Nintendo NX Pokemon game, with another team working on a new Mario title. Both titles will apparently be released within the first six months of the machine's life.

Developer Game Freak will bring Pokémon to the platform, while Nintendo’s first party titles include the previously announced Zelda game – Breath of the Wild – and
a new Mario game. All three products are scheduled to appear within the first six months of the machine’s life.

The same source revealed that Nintendo is doing its very best to avoid the drought that hit both Wii U and 3DS shortly after launch. The Japanese company has approached several publishers, with Sega, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Activision and Warner Bros already on-board.

The firm has also been busy securing third-party support, with Sega, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Activision and Warner Bros already on-board.

Sources close to Nintendo have told MCV that the firm is determined that NX will not suffer the same slow start as either the Wii U or 3DS.

Don't expect mind-blowing graphics, though, as the report mentions that will fall somewhere between PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 with Nintendo targeting both smartphone and core console gamers.

Coming from an unnamed source, we must take everything with a grain of salt until official announcements come in. Still, there's definitely some amount of truth in what has been revealed today, considering several publishers have talked positively about Nintendo and its upcoming console in the past few weeks.

The Nintendo NX launches in all regions during March 2017. We will keep you updated on Nintendo's upcoming console as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
