We do know that Nintendo is developing the Nintendo NX console, but now it looks like the company is making a separate portable device too as this has a codename of “MH”.
According to a report from Traders Japan, it talks about Nintendo entering new business ventures by releasing the “next-generation game machine “NX” and next-generation portable game machine “MH” (tenative name)”
This is the first report to mention the portable device as a separate thing. Previous rumors suggested that the NX was a hybrid console that can act as both a home and portable device. Now it looks like we might see the release of two devices from Nintendo in the near future.
It’s possible the “MH” stands for mobile handheld and that it will work as an extra accessory to the NX home console. Nintendo has been teasing that the NX will add something new to the table as they are alway thinking outside of the box.
It’s been several years since the 3DS was released so it’s due for an upgrade. The NX is already sounding cool as The Legend of Zelda might be a launch title so it will be interesting to see what type of games the MH has.
