What if Nintendo suddenly released all of its Wii games?
How many would you buy?
How would you know whether they’re worth buying?
In a nutshell, we’re asking those questions now, because there’s no doubt Nintendo’s next-gen console, the NX, will be a big deal.
But before you dive into the details, it’s worth noting that the NX is still a work in progress.
The console is still in the early stages of development and has yet to release software to test on.
The NX is set to launch sometime in 2019, and the final hardware version of the console, codenamed NX, is scheduled to be released sometime in 2021.
Nintendo hasn’t revealed a price, but if you’re interested in getting your hands on one, it could sell for as much as $1,200 on Newegg, a site that offers both preorders and pre-orders with discounts.
It’s worth paying attention to the NX’s specs, too, because that’s what it’ll need to play games on the NX.
The Nintendo NX is powered by a 2.4GHz dual-core processor and a 4GB of RAM, which will be the only major hardware change between the NX and Wii U. The main reason for that is to enable better battery life, and that’s why the NX will also come with a pair of infrared ports for wireless gaming.
It also has a pair more powerful HDMI ports, one for 3D and another for 4K gaming.
(The Wii U’s HDMI ports also work with the NX.)
Both of those ports will be able to connect to the Nintendo Switch, which Nintendo will ship with for its own home console release in 2019.
The Switch will be one of the first Nintendo consoles to come with the new 3D functionality.
Nintendo also announced a new wireless controller called Joy-Con.
Nintendo is also expected to unveil a range of other new products during the NX launch.
These include new Nintendo Switch peripherals, as well as a new Switch game console, a new Nintendo 3DS XL, and a new, smaller Nintendo Switch portable gaming system.
The Wii U and Wii are still in development, but we can already tell they’re going to have a lot more power to offer.
It’ll be interesting to see how they do when the NX launches, because it’s still early days.
But with the Wii U still in its early stages, it’ll be fascinating to see what other hardware and software Nintendo will release in the coming years.
