Nintendo NX is coming out in March 2017 and Nintendo hopes to expose it to a wider audience. However, some part of the “wider audience” Nintendo is targeting is apparently made up of moms.
That is why Nintendo hopes that your mommy would like Nintendo NX and is going to greatly enjoy the games they have to offer.
Speaking in a recent interview, Nintendo’s Shinya Takahashi, the General Manager of Entertaining Planning and Development, stated:
I can’t talk about this in detail yet, but we are aiming so that neither people who like games nor moms dislike it. I think that I want to release a game device that both customers who have much experience in gaming and customers who haven’t played much can enjoy greatly.
I wonder what kind of games they are making, especially while working with third parties. Such statements certainly don’t imply that Nintendo is trying to move away from its very casual image.
Nintendo is expected to host an exclusive event to showcase the NX. We hope it would be a defining moment for Nintendo and it allows the company to make a comeback in the console space.
There are many rumors and speculation about the NX. Some claim that it is more powerful than PS4 while others say it is using an Nvidia Tegra mobile chip from 2015.
The Nvidia Tegra rumor spread like wildfire once we heard that TEGRA X2 might be the one inside NX. Sources say that the X2 is much more powerful but still shouldn’t be expected to exceed the capabilities of current-gen hardware.
