Nintendo’s release of Pokemon GO! has certainly stolen the news for a game it didn’t even create and stopped the conversation about its super-secret NX for a bit given the roller-coaster ride of its stock and people getting shot trying to lure Pokemon GO! players into a robbery, but it appears we may finally have some NX details thanks to Eurogamer.

Nintendo NX details finally?

Eurogamer is claiming credible sources for the first real details for the Nintendo NX. Apparently, the NX will be a handheld, consequently portable, console with detachable controllers with its own display.

However, the fun won’t stop there as you can decide whether or not to remove the controllers that will flank it on either side. The hybrid bit comes in when you’re home and wish to play on a larger screen.

Apparently, you’ll be able to connect the NX to your television using one of the controllers. Eurogamer’s sources are also reporting that the NX will provide different gaming options via cartridge. The NX isn’t playing around when it comes to power and will enjoy Nvidia’s powerful Tegra mobile processor.

While it’s likely that downloadable games will make up the basis of this system at home, the cartridge (32GB?) option is clearly for portability but will certainly disappoint those gaming at home given that size limitation.

The guts of the NX

Once again, Nvidia’s powerful mobile processor Tegra will give the NX no small measure of power. It’s important to note that Nintendo clearly isn’t looking to compete with either the Playstation 4 or the Xbox One.

While Eurogamer may have sources, that doesn’t mean that it gets a comment from Nintendo ahead of the unveiling of the NX in September.

“Nintendo has not made any new official announcements regarding NX which is due to launch in March 2017,” a Nintendo spokesperson told Eurogamer when contacted about this story. “As such [we’re] unable to comment on the various rumours and speculations circulating.”

Essentially, we still know nothing, but we do know that Nintendo has a library of games that people love and will surely be building on this with the NX.
