Another day, another Nintendo NX rumour. From AMD stating that you can expect it this year to expertly created fake controllers, there’s never been a dull moment in the run-up to Nintendo announcing it officially.
The latest is that the NX will be a lot more powerful than other consoles like the PS4.
“The NX will be more powerful than the PS4. ‘By a noticeable amount’. From the CPU, to GPU, to RAM. Sources don’t know the clock speeds, or memory type or amount of memory,” an insider posted on gaming forum NeoGAF after being verified as potentially accurate information. It’s in contrast to earlier information about the console coming with 900p and 60fps support.
In addition to this, other leaks on the forum claim it will be home to ports of hit Wii U titles. This information comes from Emily Rogers, an insider with a reasonable track record. Earlier in the year she noted that Nintendo would be releasing a new Paper Mario game for the Wii U before Nintendo announced it as Paper Mario: Color Splash.
“The following Wii U ports in development for NX: Zelda, Smash Bros, Mario Maker, Splatoon. But…and yes there’s a “But”…(read next tweet),” Rogers tweeted. This was followed by “Just because something is in development doesn’t mean it’ll be released. So either all four of these ports will come…or only two of them,” and “I spoke with at least 10 people regarding these four ports. Splatoon is up in the air. Zelda/Smash Bros sound like guarantees.”
Her Twitter account is private but screenshots of her tweets are available on gaming forum NeoGAF. With E3 2016 in three months we won’t be surprised if Nintendo unveils the NX in time for an end of year release.
