There have been lots of rumors about Nintendo’s upcoming NX hardware in recent months, but Nintendo has remained largely silent. One of the more vocal sources of NX rumors lately has been Emily Rogers, an insider who has leaked accurate information in the past. Rogers has previously reported that four Wii U games are being ported to NX and that NX will have a very strong software lineup early on, and today she has expanded on those reports in a blog post. According to “sources close to Nintendo,” Nintendo’s development process has gone through radical changes in order to maximize the output of first-party software. Here’s the breakdown of what’s reportedly happening at Nintendo:
- The big fundamental focal point (and overall goal) behind NX is to vastly increase the software output from Nintendo’s first party teams and studios.
- To accomplish this, the entire process of how Nintendo develops and produces software has gone through radical changes.
- There is a new strategy that was put in place to create and release first party software at a faster rate.
- Multiple unannounced Wii U projects were moved over to NX.
- The NX could potentially see the highest output of first party software in the company’s history. (This applies to the entire lifespan of NX. Not just one or two years.)
