Nintendo's newest machine, NX, is raising some eyebrows. It will be a portable, handheld console with detachable controllers, according to Eurogamer. The NX will also function as its own display when you are using it remotely. The interesting part is that the game is bookended by two controllers. These sections can be removed or attached as you go.

When you aren't out in the world, the system easily connects to your TV for gaming through a docking station.

NX uses cartridges and will have an extremely powerful Tegra mobile processor. They are suggesting a 32GB cartridge, which does seem on the smaller side. There will also be digital games available for download.

There isn't going to be a plan for backwards compatibility with some of the older cartridge games because the technology has advanced so much that it wouldn't be easy to do. However, the platform will run on a new Nintendo operating system, not simply run on Android like some previous reports have said.

NX planning has become increasingly important for Nintendo now that they are riding a wave of success. After the problems with the Wii U launch, they are trying to get all of their ducks in a row now so that they can spot any problems. There hasn't been many reports on the games we can expect, though it is likely that Mario and Zelda will be included. However, there have been a few reports that various Wii U games will reappear on NX, including Splatoon and Smash Bros.

"Nintendo has not made any new official announcements regarding NX which is due to launch in March 2017," a Nintendo spokesperson told Eurogamer when contacted about their story. "As such [we're] unable to comment on the various rumours and speculations circulating."
