Some Devs Still Know Nothing About The Nintendo NX Console

With the Nintendo NX console on the horizon, you would think some developers would know about it already. However, some developers know nothing official about it like everyone else.

EGM caught up with many developers to ask them if they know a little bit of information about the Nintendo NX console. The ones that were asked haven’t heard anything from Nintendo.

Ready At Dawn’s Ru Weerasuriya said: “The day one plan [for Deformers] is to launch on Xbox [One], PlayStation 4, and PC… What about NX? That’s the thing. Honestly, we are waiting“. The studio does not even have a developer kit for the NX yet.

Paul Yan from Toys for Bob’s knows little about it too. Toys for Bob’s is currently aiding development for Skylanders Imaginators and that franchise always comes out on lots of platforms.

Yan said: “We haven’t heard any news from Nintendo, so we don’t have any announcements“. Nintendo is keeping a very tight lid on any information from leaking out.

Mark Stanley from GameTrust (developing Deformers) confirmed that they have spoken to Nintendo about the NX, but no specific details have been shared. We do know a lot of first party developers are working on Nintendo NX video games. The next Legend of Zelda game is expected to hit the NX and Wii U in 2017.
