Nintendo Announces Nintendo NX

Recently Nintendo unveiled plans for a mystery console currently known under the codename "Nintendo NX". Whilst more details aren't expected till 2016, speculations suggest that it will be nothing at all like the Wii U - Nintendo's worst-selling console - and may potentially also replace the 3DS as a report in the Wall Street Journal available here claims that the new Nintendo NX will somehow combine both console and handheld gaming. A patent was discovered and is available here which also suggests the new control design to be both a fusion of the touchscreen feature seen on the 3DS as well as the twin joysticks of the Nintendo Gamecube.

In an interview with Time's Matt Peckham, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said the following: "As far as NX goes, I've said it's different and obviously a new experience," Kimishima said. "That being said, I can assure you we're not building the next version of Wii or Wii U. It's something unique and different. It's something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base."
