Nintendo NX To Use x86 Architecture, To Feature Support For Additional Screen And More – Rumor


The Nintendo NX continues to be one of the biggest mysteries of the video games industry. Nintendo has been working on its new console for some time, but very little has managed to leak out, with only rumors giving us potential details of the new system. Earlier today, another rumor on the next Nintendo console has surfaced online, a rumor that comes from a source that is very likely to have information on the system.

According to reddit user untypedhero, the Nintendo NX is going to use x86 architecture, and it will be able to handle ports of current-gen games. Additionaly, untypedhero confirmed that the console will come with support for additional screen and that it will be able to interact with smartdevice apps.

As promised, I've decided to share some more NX information with you. This is second-hand information from trusted sources (like last time) and I have little reason to doubt its validity.

Here you go:

  • x86 architecture.
  • Backup data to Nintendo server (most likely My Nintendo).
  • Support for additional screen.
  • Can handle ports of current-gen games.
  • Will be able to interact with smartdevice apps.
  • Using NX software will unlock My Nintendo reward points.

As the rumor comes from an anonymous source, we must take everything with a grain of salt. Untypedhero, however, has already proven a few hours ago that he indeed has access to confidential information, as he revealed yesterday that no new footage of the new Pokemon games, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, was going to be shown today, despite what has been previously announced by Nintendo and the Pokemon Company. The user has also been verified by one of the moderators of the Nintendo NX subreddit, so there may be some truth in what untypedhero has revealed today.

While I cannot comment on the specific details mentioned above, this user has provided proof to the mods that they very likely have actual knowledge about the Nintendo NX.

The Nintendo NX has yet to be revealed, so there's very little we know about the console. We will keep you updated as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
