We heard yesterday that Japanese publication The Nikkei claimed that the Nintendo NX would use a version of Android for its operating system. However, a Nintendo spokesperson has come out and said that there’s no truth to this rumour. It certainly would have made some sense for the new system to use Google’s operating system, but that rumour has been shot down by the company. Still, I suppose they wouldn’t reveal whether or not it is running Android at this point in time anyway. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has said that we won’t hear more about the NX until 2016.
“There is no truth to the report saying that we are planning to adopt Android for NX,” a Nintendo spokesman said.
