Wall Street Journal Speculates That Nintendo Will Share NX Details In Coming Week

Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki has stated on Twitter that he believes Nintendo will share the NX announcement details sometime in the coming week. However, Nintendo has yet to mention when we can expect a Nintendo NX reveal so we shall just have to wait and see if any information comes this week.

Thanks, Paidenthusiast

  1. They were right about Nintendo ceasing Wii U production this year. So this could be possible. That said, I think only the announcement of the event will happen. I don’t think the event itself will happen for at least a couple more weeks. If not later next month a to not overshadow Pokemon Sun and Moon. You’d think they’d want to wait till their last big 2016 release is out before talking about the NX.

    Though guess we’ll see in time. Either way this is a rumor I can sort of see having some credibility to it.

      1. Exceptionally well. I think that is the only Pokemon gen that I have played all versions of. Black/White & Black 2/White 2 were just too doggone good!

      1. After Junichi Masuda’s comment about Pokemon main games only appearing on handhelds, I think you might be right. >.<

    1. Wrong. There are no plans to cease production of Wii U until at least 2018 and even that’s only speculation. Nintendo have clearly stated that codename NX will not be a direct successor to the Wii U which means they don’t regard the two pieces of hardware even in the same category. The NX is a new Concept/hybrid device. This means they still have plans for Wii U for the time being. What that will actually mean for the fate of WII U remains to be seen but you would image if the NX is a success they would gradually wind Wii U down.

      Nintendo knows that they have to be smart business wise when it comes to decisions they make after recent years failings. Despite those feelings the Wii U still has a 13 million user base and have sold 88 million software units. The Wii U is actually becoming quite a hallowed and sought-after piece of hardware so if there’s any profit left to squeeze out of the machine be sure that nintendo will capitalise on it while it can.

      As for this latest rumour my advice consists of three words

      HUGE GRAIN AND SALT

      1. And yet Nintendo has no more games planned for Wii U (that we know of) aside from Breath of the Wild, which isn’t even exclusive anymore since it’s planned as an NX launch title now too. If that’s Nintendo’s idea of supporting the Wii U until 2018, that’s a bad sign.

        Unless their idea of supporting the console is just keeping its online services up until then for the eShop, apps, and games like Splatoon and Smash, which still isn’t great.

      1. }{ Some games are built first on console then ported to PC, some the other way around… The first system to have it is generally the least buggy (ever since Arkham Knight most peasants just kind of assumes PC is buggier)… That’s one reason I favor a universal system so that nobody has to get a buggy port… With regards to requesting ports of certain games to the PC, the only reason they are not put on the PC is due to forced exclusivity by publishers who hope to sell their consoles for extravagant prices, not to mention their insistence on $60 per game, which on PC is not usually the case (not to say it never is, as that would be a lie, but far less often). PC has plenty of beautiful games consoles could never even dream of having entire genres even such as RTS’s, MOBA’s, City Simulators, and with rare exception MMO’s, not to mention an indie scene vaster than anything you could possibly comprehend… To claim the PC is constantly begging for ports and has nothing but inferior ports and tons of glitchy games demonstrates a clear lack of understanding about the platform. I might suggest you research PC gaming heavily to fully understand it before attempting to make any sort of assertions about it… }{

      2. Right? I mean why come here and just…wow. Maybe I can shed some light for him. I tell you why we prefer “inferior” device for games…its because they are made for the games alone. You seem to forget, a console is a PC. just made for the games alone. Its not really meant for apps like they have today such as hulu crunchyroll, vudu, and others. The PC is powerful yes, and its meant for daily use like news, programming and others…but people just want to play games and what a better way then a handheld (even smartphones) and home consoles on the big tv. I suggest you look into that. Or do you want to sound more like blackb0nd? As I said before, “your no dream walk in the park either”.

      1. }{ While your statement is indeed true, the Wii U has plenty of good software, I would like to point out that were they to simply use the PC they wouldn’t be nearly as constrained by hardware limitations and they wouldn’t have to waste resources on producing hardware… I’m not knocking Nintendo’s software creation capabilities as their games are quite excellent, I’m simply stating they would do that much better if they would focus on the PC, rather than creating new gimmicks that developers will have to actively try to find a use for such as the gamepad… }{

      2. I don’t think you are understanding why they do that…and when you said “I still fail to see why there is so much excitement for the announcement of an instantly inferior device…” You just showed that you are being a hypocrite. As I said up there…”I think you are forgetting that a console is a PC. It’s made for games alone”. You have to realize one thing…not everyone likes to stay at the computer 24 7. specially families that want to play games together…or as they say “casuals”.

      3. PC’s can work for casuals, but it can still take a bit of a loop to understand. It doesn’t work exactly like a console. A console is pretty straightforward. You buy it to play games. And the games are set up exactly the same way for everyone. The casuals have no idea how it’s running or what settings it’s on and they really couldn’t care less as long as it’s playable for them. If every PC were this way, they’d gladly play games on there and I’m sure there’d be way more gamers considering how many people use a PC. But if you expect to play anything on a PC aside from online flash games or something, you’re going to need to understand the technical stuff. It isn’t really that difficult, but someone that’s used to playing consoles and having everything already done for them and set up, they’re going to wonder why they should spend extra time learning that stuff when they’d rather just get to the game.

It allows the open platform experience of a PC that would make programming games for all much simpler, while at the same time creating a system simple enough for the technically challenged. }{

      5. A Steam Box does not run like a console either. It’s still a PC and the way the games run still depends on the specs of the one you got instead of being optimized the way console versions are.

  2. I’m interested in knowing if anyone is actually getting any hope up when these Non-Nintendo (so called) Sources spew their figurative crap in form of guesswork, in blind hope that they are lucky enough for a coincidental reveal roughly at that point?
    You should not, as it will be revealed only when the time is right, by Nintendo.

      1. As for LadyRosalinas question: In a sense, yes; the console war will likely be waged forever, and second tiered to this is a simple “War of Ideas and Preferences”, you might call it. One simply sides with whoever you find have the best stand on matters, so do you, so do we all.

        And to tie in with your remark Giygas: If you’re alluding to Nintendo First Order Commander Quadraxis, you might be surprised to learn that you are mistaken.
        There are similarities, true and for example; he has stated that he is stationed in Sweden, and since you can see my name clearly, I might not need to explain that resemblance further.
        A difference, although under misconception maybe, is that I am no robot, and I have never claimed to be.
        I am however aligned with the Commander, because I find our interests to coincide, and thus took on the Nintendo First Order’s “garb”, so to speak.

        But like everybody here, you, I and everyone else are seen through the veil of the Internet, and can therefore be exactly what they want; whether it’s good or bad I won’t say, but it makes the “role player” argument useless.

      2. So that explains why we are seeing commander this military that guys here…if you really want my opinion about it…”why”? I just don’t understand why they call themselves (sorry Nintendo commander) military PC commander, first so and so commander and such. Maybe I don’t clearly see eye to eye on the concept, but I guess I’m no acceptation on the matter either *looks at my name for the net*. But what I turly don’t understand is why so much hate for a console? Like fanboys/fangirls of playstation, xbox and even pc. That to me is very stupid…and the employees of the other companies showed that they love each others games on their consoles and even complimented. Take Phil Spencer for an example. He sat there and told the fanboys of xbox that “if it wasn’t for nintendo, we wouldn’t be here” in a sense. Plus released a xbox port with Mario in it minecraft Super Mario edition. People need to chill, get a dose of reality, and enjoy what we got rather your a PC only gamer or not. Goes for those women nazis’ (feminist) too.

      5. And that is why I am more open minded about the others. You can neglect it, not care for the others and do your own investigation. You might get some good news out of it for all I know. However respect is due where it is credited. That is something banboys/fangirls can’t grasp around their heads…as you said yourself, ” I don’t care about anyone elses unless it nebefits Nintendo”. Let me put this in your “processor”. Keeps your circuits close, keep your enemies closer”. I’m a reader and hope to be a designer myself but I keep an open mind up and going for the sake of nintendo making it and to keep the gaming revolution going. That means as I told many countless times, even you, that with out the competition, there goes the gaming revolution…if nintendo falls, there goes the whole gaming community. means to your destruction too…for being careless of the competition in the company but I for one don’t believe there really is a war of the big 3. That has been thrown out the widow by them playing each others games and liking them. Even sakurai plays playstation and his favorites have been mention by his “lord’s” mouth. Let me tell you a little secret about myself. I actually do look up to miyamoto and Iwata as my inspiration to become a designer. But…like you I was close minded and thought Nintendo was king of the 3…boy was I so stupid, I had fun playing the other systems even though nintendo is my main console still to this day. Open your circits, see the real world of gaming.

      7. I disagree…fully. and again your not opening your circuits…and by saying “The human motto “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer” has absolutely no value here, now it is only destroy or be destroyed…” means your full destruction. Never underestimate the “human race”. As for that last paragraph, Opposite. Failure, error, 404 page not found by that logic. You know just as well as I do that without the competitors, nintendo would go dull, resorting back to the gaming crash of the 80’s. Remember those big bulky gaming systems called arcades? Yeah, um that would be a repeat of that failure if nintendo didn’t step in.

Surely that suit she has have to help but she was an orphan if I’m correct. And yet she beat all of the space pirate, INGS, metroids and even you if I’m correct. So if humans are obsolete by your logic…how come she can beat you and others, and not just her, but all the humans in that same battle? Well, I guess it doesn’t matter. Even putting you back together serves as a small service to me in a way since I am on the side of the NX and hope they do good. So in that case, I better stop malfunctioning you. I would hate to see a bot of my own stature ruined before the battle comes.

Its not everyday I get to mess with minds though, anyways back to being serious. NC, you just can’t ignore it. That’s my whole point on the first few comments. I for one, hopes the NX does pull through…My dream depends on its success for the gaming community. I only hope I’m not too late with my dream.

  4. Well, there probably won’t be many games since not many people know how it works. Even if there are games it’s hard to imagine too many of them using the gimmick (if there is one). Nintendo will have to carry this for some time before it picks up. Probably not a smart thing to buy right out of the gate. I know the WIi U never ending up getting a price cut (in 4 years) but I would imagine a new console just might in a year or 2. Can anyone else think of a product that hasn’t improved and hasn’t come down in price in 4 years?
