The details surrounding Nintendo’s next console are now becoming clearer, thanks to a new Eurogamer report. Various rumours have flooded the internet in recent months and it appears some of them might actually be true.
“NX will use game cartridges as its choice of physical media, multiple sources have also told us.
Considering NX’s basis as a handheld first and foremost, the choice may not come as too much of a surprise – although we have heard the suggestion Nintendo recommends a 32GB cartridge, which is small when considering the size of many modern games.”
“On the move, NX will function as a high-powered handheld console with its own display. So far so normal – but here’s the twist: we’ve heard the screen is bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached or detached as required.
Then, when you get home, the system can connect to your TV for gaming on the big screen.
A base unit, or dock station, is used to connect the brain of the NX – within the controller – to display on your TV.”
