A verified Reddit user named Untypedhero has posted alleged details on the future NX system, pointing out that it will be able to interact with smartdevice apps, handle ports of current-gen games and will have support for an additional screen, as well as other details listed below:
“As promised, I’ve decided to share some more NX information with you. This is second-hand information from trusted sources (like last time) and I have little reason to doubt its validity.
Here you go:
- x86 architecture.
- Backup data to Nintendo server (most likely My Nintendo).
- Support for additional screen.
- Can handle ports of current-gen games.
- Will be able to interact with smartdevice apps.
- Using NX software will unlock My Nintendo reward points.”
As with all NX rumours they need to be taken with a pinch of salt, as nothing is official until it has been confirmed by Nintendo themselves. However, it will be interesting to see if these are legitimate once we learn more about the NX and its development.
The stickied comment underneath the post reads “This user has been verified by the mod team. We have confirmed that he has connections to Wii U developer(s) and/or development hardware and very likely has knowledge about the NX via those same connections. This verification is sort of general/open ended and I unfortunately cannot verify specific details on a point by point basis.”
