Nvidia Involved With Nintendo

There are so many rumours around the Nintendo NX that it can often become confusing for people to know what the facts are.  The problem is though are Nintendo too secretive over NX?

This has been touched on recently by Coldwood Interactive who worked on Unravel:

“they’re really secretive about it! About the NX, it’s funny, really. I wish I knew more about it, but they’re really secretive about it. I actually had a really fun discussion with a person from Nintendo a while back. It was basically ‘I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours’ (laughs). So he wanted me to pitch something for the NX, and then he could tell me more about what it was.”

It appears that they are not the only company having this issue as Thomas Mahler of Moon Studios, the company behind Ori and The Blind Forest have revealed on NeoGaf:

“This is actually THE singlest most annoying thing for every dev out there. We also talked to Nintendo and got absolutely nothing – I’ll never understand that. And just to be clear, it’s not just Nintendo, every hardware manufacturer is treating their devkits and their unreleased consoles like they’re the second coming and are insanely secretive about it to a stupid degree in todays time. It’s not even that the hardware isn’t finished (duh), but you could at least give me the goddamn specs, so we’d know what to build shit for!

What’s needed to sell hardware is goddamn good software. With Nintendo not having any devkits out there at this point and probably even wanting to sell it in 2016, I can already guarantee that they’ll just not have any software support, since nobody can just jumble games together in less than a year. I mean, you can, but it’ll be garbage.”

So with rumours that Ubisoft have dev kids as well as some Indie developers just who are working on Nintendo NX games?
