Nintendo NX

The Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara has spoken briefly about the Nintendo NX, and may have confirmed one of the system’s long-standing rumors. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Ishihara gave some insight into what kind of system the NX would be and confirmed software from the company would hit the platform. He had this to say:

“The NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a hand-held device. We will make games for the NX.”

It’s been long-rumored that the NX would feature both handheld and console functionality, and this latest quote seems to all but confirm that. Of course it’s not really official until Nintendo confirms it themselves. The Nintendo NX is set to be revealed sometime this year.
