There are more and more rumors appearing about the coming NX home console from Nintendo, and their frequency will probably increase in the coming months, especially if the company is not interested in making an official announcement to deliver information about the features and the included hardware. A new source on NeoGAF says that the coming device will be designed to offer the same computing power as the also-rumored PlayStation 4K from Sony, and that the GPU will be based on the new Polaris architecture, with the fabrication process taking place in 14 nm.
The rumor also mentions that at least one of the controllers associated with the NX will have a screen, although the look will be different from the fake images that appeared earlier in the year.
Nintendo is planning to offer a new take on the GamePad for the Wii U, but the platform is not designed to be a handheld that will provide an experience like the 3DS.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 is one of the video games that are set to arrive alongside the NX at launch, and there are many other developers who currently have access to prototypes and are planning to create interesting titles for it.
Information about the console has been leaking since the start of the year, and the current understanding is that there are factories in Taiwan that are already preparing the manufacturing process, which will go live towards the end of spring.
The plan at Nintendo is rumored to include an official announcement in early summer, possibly during events associated with E3 2016, and that the device might arrive in stores before the end of the season.
Information that the company shared with its investors mentions that it is seeking to boost its sales of hardware by about 12 to 15 million units for the fiscal year that will end in March 2017, which it cannot do with the currently available Wii U and 3DS.
Rumors are also saying that the NX will be the platform on which the new Legend of Zelda title, which moves to 3D and offers an open-world structure, will arrive, and there are also planned remakes for Splatoon and Mario Maker.
Nintendo has been saying that its new hardware platform will offer a unique experience to gamers, but it's unclear when it will be ready to come up with actual details.
