Report: Nintendo NX is Portable With Detachable Controllers

A new report claims that the mysterious Nintendo NX console is portable, with detachable controllers, and uses cartridges.

Eurogamer reports that “a number of sources” have confirmed that Nintendo’s next gaming console, the NX, will be “a high-powered handheld console with its own display,” with two detachable controllers on either side of the screen.

Further, the report indicates that the system can be connected to a docking station for use on a larger screen. “A base unit, or dock station, is used to connect the brain of the NX – within the controller – to display on your TV,” the Eurogamer report reads. The new report also corroborates earlier rumors, which indicated that the system will use cartridges.

“Nintendo has not made any new official announcements regarding NX which is due to launch in March 2017,” a Nintendo spokesperson told Eurogamer. “As such [we’re] unable to comment on the various rumours and speculations circulating.”

The NX is slated to release in March 2017, accompanied by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Since we don’t have any pictures of the console, here’s a Breath of the Wild gallery to hold you over.
