New NX Rumors Reveal Name of Nintendo’s Console… “Duo”?

Published

Several new leaks by a large retail partner through Reddit might have revealed the official name of the Nintendo NX, as well as its pricing, features, and packaging.

It has essentially been confirmed that the NX will be a console / handheld hybrid that’s detachable. It will come with a traditional console that serves as a dock, containing the hardbdrive, cartrige slot and various other interfaces; a performance module that serves as the systems power supply, containing a lithium ion battery and the CPU / GPU; and a detachable handheld unit featuring a 6 inch, 720px screen.

According to GamesBulletinUK, the console itself will sell for $299, in line with the Xbox One S and PS4 Slim’s pricing, but a a premium bundle (contents currently unknown) costing $399 will also be available at launch. Stores should start recieving demo units around February 2017.

4k streaming will be a feature of the NX, but it will likely only be for playback of content such as Netflix and not for gaming. Many, if not most games, are expected to run at 1080p and 60fps.

Speaking of games, they will be on cartridges, lending credence to past reports. Early adopters can expect at least 4 titles, including a Mario game and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Although slightly larger, the packaging of the NX will be relatively clean and simple like the Wii U package design. It will have a white and blue color scheme compared to the Wii U’s blue and black.

Unfortunately, the area of the packages that usually depict the console were blurred and redacted by Nintendo in attempt to keep the NX hidden.

A leaked image (show above) that recently surfaced on the Internet may have revealed the console’s official name: ‘Nintendo Duo’. How does that sound considering that the NX is a console / handheld hybrid?

Nintendo has remained silent on every tidbit of alleged info on their upcoming console, so only time will tell if any of this is true. Just make sure to stay tuned to GameTribute for future developments.

Animal Crossing Switch

No more rumors — Animal Crossing is coming to the Switch.

After gutting disappointments at E3 2018 and subsequent Nintendo Directs, Nintendo has finally confirmed that Animal Crossing Switch is gearing up for a 2019 launch.

Details are pretty scant — all we got is “Animal Crossing” for a title — but we can expect Tom Nook to return and, hopefully, at least a visit from all, if not most, of the other characters when you use their Amiibo figure.

Watch the announcement trailer, and let us know what you hope to see in Animal Crossing Switch…
