Nintendo NX, a new console for gamers, is going to be released in 2017 and with the success of Pokemon GO right now, it seems like the gaming company knows now what to focus on when they release the console.
Pokemon Go was released last week and it immediately became a hit across the globe. However, the question is – what is the feature of the game that the previous ones lack? The answer is, it uses internet just like all the popular games these days.
It can be recalled that the past games of Nintendo focused more on local multiplayer. But, with the help coming from a third party, Niantic, Pokemon GO hit the market big time. If the gaming company wants to create a hit-game like this, they should probably embrace the internet as well.
Another thing is that, Nintendo should give people what they want and refrain from pushing what the company wants on the consumers. That particular scenario was pretty evident on Nintendo?s Wii U, where they assume they knew what was best for the users without considering what customers wanted. But finally, when they decided to launch games like Splatoon, Mario Kart 8, and Super Smash Bros, which certainly gave the gamers what they really want, all of those were a success.
Meanwhile, with regards to the upcoming Nintendo NX, reports are claiming that the console will feature a new type of controller. It will be an oval touchscreen controller that will showcase two grips at the bottom and two large buttons on either side of the device. Also, the reason for the new controller is to be more effective on apps in the gaming platform featuring only original Nintendo games and NX content.
Aside from that, there are also posts stating that the new controller will be similar to the tablets available in the market, which will enable all the gamers to carry the controller anywhere and access the applications anytime they want to. With that fact, it is clear that the console is going to introduce a new way of playing games featuring a hybrid of home gaming consoles and a handy handheld gaming platform.
Furthermore, the new Nintendo console is also expected to be disc-less. According to reports, the console will promote the download-only approach and use game cartridges. Plus, instead of using an optical storage, it was noted that the flash storage is more reliable, faster and cheaper.
