The Nintendo NX will be released in March 2017, but there aren’t known many details about this console/handled hybrid, only that it will include a controller that will integrate with a TV, via a special NX HDMI dongle and will connect through Bluetooth to any compatible device, supporting smartphones. Nintendo will release the Legend of Zelda game for this console, but it will run on the Wii U, as well.
Tatsumi Kimishima, Nintendo president, isn’t very optimistic about the sales of the most recent home console, saying that “We are predicting about 800,000 Wii U hardware sales in the fiscal year ending March 2017, which is a decrease of about 2.4 million units compared to the previous year.”
A while ago, the Pokémon Company International teamed up with British artist Quentin Devine and together, they’ve created the world’s largest trading card mosaic which contains 12,987 different Pokémon Trading Card Game cards. Kimishima has added that “NX and smart device business will be essential to cover this gap, but we also expect download content business to play a role. However, we are planning with the expectation that NX sales will compensate for much of the impact on sales from reduced Wii U hardware sales.”
The Nintendo NX will be released in March 2017 because in that period will be also launched many important games (a new Mario game), and people will be interested in playing them on the new console, as they will run at 900p and in 60 frames per second. Also, the console will stream 4K Ultra HD video and will include an AMD GPU, which will be backed by 6GB or 8GB of RAM. This information comes from a Reddit user untypedhero who said that he’s a Nintendo employee, but we suggest you to not take his word for granted. The Nintendo NX will run on an operating system that will be based on Google’s Android.
