Nintendo NL: "NX console still planned for March 2017 release, not playable at First Look 2016"

This is a part of a short Email Q&A with Nintendo Netherlands in regards to First Look 2016 and the NX release: 

Translation from Dutch: 

"Dear Sir/Madam, Is the Nintendo NX Console playable at First Look 2016?"

"Dear Mohsen, Thanks for your email. The Nintendo NX (Codename) will not be playable at First Look"

"Does this mean that the said Home Console will launch later than March 2017 in the Netherlands?"

"Dear Mohsen, that's not what we said. The NX is still planned for a March 2017 release. Even we don't have any more details than this/don't know more than this.

Nintendo NX: Games i've heard about so far..

Third Party Games:

- Mass Effect Andromeda (EA)
- Star Wars  (EA)
- Fifa 17: Indirectly confirmed by EA on my public Twitter feed.

Pinkey Elefante: posted a video about it on my Youtube Channel days before the Developer confirmed it on Twitter

Also a post on 9th September 2016:

Developer post on 12th September 2016:


- Rayman NX
- Rabbits NX
- For Honor

- Call of Duty NX

Nintendo First Party Games:

- 3D Mario (Could be a Super Mario Galaxy Game)
- Metroid NX (confirmed by different sources)
- Kid Icarus NX (could have been in development by Retro Studios but likely moved to different studio)

*I posted on the same day and 5-10 minutes before Emily Rogers that Retro Studios NX game was an old IP, Emily Rogers posted "Is a new IP". We both were confused. I later asked my source what he ment.

He replied: "It's not Metroid. It could be old, completely new or new IP".  Interesting note: The source contacted me after seeing my video: "Top 5 IP's that will likely make a comeback on NX"

A video where i listed 5 games:

- F-Zero
- Kid Icarus
- Wave Race
- StarTropics
- Metroid (confirmed by different sources)

My final thoughts on NX: 2 Consoles and Mobile interconnectivity

My final thoughts on NX:

    Nintendo will release 2 Consoles: Handheld & Home Console
    Main Gimmick of the Handheld: Interactive Dynamic AR
    Main Gimmick of the Home Console: Could be Basic AR with Glasses. I've seen some things related to a Haptic Screen Controller (prototype), may or may not be included in the final products.

        The Home Console has streaming features: 

    Can stream AAA games to the Handheld, Basic Games to Mobile
    Nintendo might offer ‘basic’ detachable controllers for the Mobile Games & the basic games that can be streamed to Mobile.

   DMP Handheld:

-       I speculate that DMP is involved in the Handheld for several reasons
-       I know about several Indie Developers who are working on NX AR games.
-       The AR tech is where DMP makes more sense than Nvidia: DMP is already highly involved in the AR/3D/3D Eye Tracking technology, used in Nintendo 3DS/New 3DS. More important: DMP is working on next-gen AR tech.

The company has just released the M3000 GPU series in august 2016.

The GPU series is build around VR/AR and DMP has multiple design wins for Q1 2017.

Among the design wins:

-       Mobile SoC
-       Portable Gaming Console SoC (VF2 with Custom M3000 series GPU)

   AMD Home Console:

     The Home Console will be powered by AMD.  AMD has multiple design wins, among those also for Gaming in 2017.

I recently asked Xenko about future Nintendo platform support (Handheld or Home Console)

“Support for Nintendo’s next Console is planned for Mid-2017”.

 I specifically asked Xenko about Handheld & Home Console (future platforms) support and that was his reply.  So what all this info in mind: Enjoy the reveal!

HNF Exclusive: Xenko Engine Nintendo NX support by Mid-2017

Pierre Rahier from Xenko Engine was together with DMP, Samsung and Khronos representatives at CEDEC 2016 recently.

The topic of the session was :"Khronos: The Future of Graphics"

Xenko Engine is a Next-Gen Game Engine, powered by Vulkan API and cross platform development features: Nintendo logo's & DMP logo's are seen on all these slides related to Vulkan API & Cross-Platform Development.

I asked Pierre Rahier about future Nintendo platform support, he replied:

". Currently we don't support Nintendo platforms. We are planning to add support for Nintendo next console for mid of 2017."

Which is an interesting comment.

Recently there's a lot of talk about DMP and NX in Japan. DMP & Xilinx will also attend SNUG 2016 Japan, to talk about ASIC/SoC Prototyping and Emulation.

This is why investment firms such as Fisco Group, speculate DMP will power the NX Handheld, not Nvidia.

This is all very, very interesting!

Hopefully we'll know more soon.
