NeoGAF user 10k has leaked a ton of rumors related to the NX, and these rumors should be treated like what they are: just rumors. 10k has been backed up by some reliable sources in the past, specifically Emily Rogers, so his rumors are at least worth looking at. Without further adieu, let’s look at some NX rumors.
The first rumor is that the NX will have a screen controller that you can take with you wherever you want. The console will stream the game to your controller over the internet making it possible to finally play your favorite console games on the go. 10k also says that this does not mean the NX will replace handhelds because there are still “limitations” to the controller such as not having “…a full OS or the capability for physical game media”.
The next rumor, and most exciting in my opinion, is that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is in development for the NX. 10k goes on to say that it is being developed by Next Level Games, and that it started out on Wii U but was ported over to the NX due to the “…disappointing performance of the Wii U and the scheduled release date for the game being late in the console’s cycle”. I need this rumor to be true, and I need this game now.
The next rumor is that the NX will have a Polaris-like GPU which is theoretically 2x more powerful than the PS4’s. 10k also said that games could easily be ported to the NX, even the more power hungry titles. This is great news seeing how porting 3rd party games was a massive issue for Wii U, and one of the big contributors to the Wii U failing.
The last few rumors are that Nintendo won’t be giving out most dev kits until the NX’s reveal. That means the bulk of developers will be using SDK’s until the official reveal. Final Fantasy XV will be released for the NX sometime in the future, and that there are a lot of games being developed for the NX. The NX needs a good launch line up, and it seems it may have one.
There seems to be a ton of love for the NX, so I can’t wait for the official reveal hopefully no later than E3 this year. Just to remind you, these are all just rumors. These should all be taken extremely lightly until further affirmation, but man it’s getting hard not to be excited for a potential Luigi’s Mansion 3!
