UK trade publication MCV is reporting that they have heard word from their sources that there will be new Mario and Pokemon game within six months of the Nintendo NX launching. Game Freak is busy preparing the new Pokemon title while Nintendo is hard at work on a new Mario game. Nintendo has also approached a number of third party developers and currently Sega, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Activision and Warner Bros are already onboard.
Game graphics will be ‘somewhere between a PS3 and PS4’, with Nintendo targeting an audience that sits between smartphone gamers and the more hardcore users of PS4 and Xbox One.
“It’s a nice bit of kit, a bit of a novelty, but a good one,” said one exec that has got hands on with the machine. “It won’t appeal to PS4 fans. Nintendo seems set on trying to upgrade smartphone gamers. That’s going to be a big job for the marketing department.”
