Report: Nintendo’s NX has entered production

We’re in the home stretch of 2016, and it’s been a busy couple of months for the video game industry. Microsoft brought HDR gaming and 4K video to the fore with the Xbox One S in August. Sony responded with a console refresh of its own in September, along with the announcement that it would launch the first ever 4K gaming console, the PlayStation 4 Pro, in November.

All this time, Nintendo has been eerily silent.

This won’t come as much of a shock to anyone who has been keeping up with the unprecedented success of Pokemon Go, but the company’s ties to the NX were previously just a rumor.

Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem mobile games delayed to make room for ‘Super Mario Run’

After originally planning to launch mobile games featuring characters from both the Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem franchises this fall, Nintendo has announced that both titles have been delayed into next year.

In a press release sent out shortly after Shigeru Miyamoto appeared on stage at the Apple event to unveil Super Mario Run, Nintendo confirmed that the Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem mobile games are now scheduled to launch by March 2017, which marks the end of the company’s fiscal year.

Nintendo kills off 500 fan games that use Mario, Zelda or Pokemon characters

Nintendo kills off 500 fan games that use Mario, Zelda or Pokemon characters

Nintendo has never had much patience for copyright infringement. Whether it’s a YouTube video or a fan game paying homage to one of the company’s classic franchises, sooner or later, there’s going to be a takedown notice involved.

These have become increasingly common in recent years, but Nintendo made a huge splash this week when it reportedly flagged 562 games from indie game site Game Jolt for removal under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

All the biggest announcements from Thursday’s Nintendo Direct

Amid all the NX rumors floating around the internet lately, some gamers expected Nintendo to carve some time out of its Direct video stream on Thursday to discuss the upcoming console. Instead, Nintendo focused almost entirely on the 3DS, but there were plenty of exciting announcements for fans of the portable machine.

Nintendo NX Rumor Roundup

Everything we think we know about Nintendo’s NX

Everything we think we know about Nintendo’s NX

Microsoft just released the Xbox One S and Sony is preparing to unveil the PS4 Slim, but in a few short months, Nintendo will launch the first truly new major video game console since 2013. The NX is currently scheduled to release next March, but we still know hardly anything about the console, as Nintendo has been predictably tight-lipped ever since the console was announced.

So in truth, we don’t know anything concrete about the NX, and likely won’t for a few more months. But at the very least, what do we think we know? More →

See Link’s rune abilities in new ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ video

Not only is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild one of the most anticipated games of 2017, it’s also one of the last major titles to ever launch on the Wii U. With that in mind, you can understand why Nintendo is already hyping up the game, despite the fact that Breath of the Wild doesn’t even have a release date.

Nintendo already shut down fan-made Pokemon game people were going crazy over

It took just nine days for Nintendo to kill the fan-made Pokemon Uranium game that took its developers more than nine years to create. The game became an instant hit – not surprising, considering it has the magic “Pokemon” word in its title – running up no less than 1.5 million downloads during that brief period of time. More →

Nintendo NX launch window to feature Mario, Zelda and Pokemon games

Nintendo NX launch window to feature Mario, Zelda and Pokemon games

Who would have thought that a console might actually need games to succeed? Although Nintendo managed to overcome the odds with the Wii, there was no Wii Sports to keep the Wii U afloat. And so it sank, further and further every year, to the point where some gamers have probably forgotten the console exists.

Nintendo isn’t going to let the NX suffer the same fate.

The Pokemon Go accessory you want most has been delayed

If there’s one official Pokemon Go accessory that some fans want most, that must be the Pokemon Go Plus wearable device that lets you perform various game actions without using the smartphone. The device costs $34.99, a more than reasonable price for a dedicated “smartwatch” that only handles Pokemon Go chores. The gadget was initially supposed to launch in late July, but that’s not the case anymore. More →
