Nintendo NX Cartridges Mentioned In New Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Trademark Listing

A new trademark listing for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild suggests that the NX will use cartridges in some way. This isn’t the first time we’re hearing similar reports regarding the media format for Nintendo’s upcoming system – but the company itself has yet to make an official announcement, which could come before the end of this week.

    1. Basically they are covering all bases. However, I’ve heard that game cartridges are better then discs when it comes to reading speed, storage space and production costs. I’m not sure about the last one, but the other two are legit.

  1. There’s only one main thing that makes me not like the cartridge idea. The fact that the cartridges will probably be hard to clean if they get dirty (like DS and 3DS game cards). With Nintendo’s past, retro cartridge consoles, they all had those security screws that could easily be removed (with the proper security tool bit), and you could open up the cartridges and give them a proper cleaning. I always hated any console that had cartridges that couldn’t be opened. Like how Atari 2600 cartridges had the screws underneath the label, and you had to damage the label in order to open the cartridge (same with some unlicensed NES games). Because of that, my Atari 2600 games are the most dirty out of all of the games I collect.

    Other than that one problem, I welcome cartridges. And my body is BEYOND ready for the NX announcement! Never have I been more eager for a Nintendo Direct than I am now. Or, however it gets revealed.

  2. How about we do this we all keep our options open until Nintendo actually reveals it and not just speculate and believe every rumour to pop up from reddit, 4chan etc? Plus I’m pretty happy with the wii u and 3ds to me it feels like a current gens gamer will say once a new fad comes out throw the old one away.

  3. With how much memory they can fit onto tiny chips now a cartridge would probably work again. The 3DS game cards can be up to 8gb, so making a larger cartridge would allow them to put in quite a bit of memory. Not to mention it’d probably load faster.

  4. If this is not a hoax or whatever & is 100% legit, Nintendo needs to get ahead of this & reveal the NX soon. It’s only a matter of time before other leaks hit the web. We don’t want another Cranky Kong fiasco.
