More and more information about the Nintendo NX is coming to the surface as the expected reveal date looms closer. Now, new details indicate that we might not have been correct about the concept of the console/handheld combo.

The Nintendo NX is the Japanese company's newest answer to the other console on the market. It will bring a home and handheld combination onto the market. It can be taken anywhere with its screen and detachable controllers. However, there will be some limitations according to new reports.

Popular YouTube user boogie2988 mentioned at the Retropalooza one flaw that stood out: "I've talked to people [at Ubisoft] who have used [the NX]," he said (via iDigitalTimes). "Let's say you could play 'Assassin's Creed' once you have your handheld plugged into your console. And then, you could then detach the thing and take it with you and play the 'Assassin's Creed' mobile game out of your pocket."

This means that only a small "form of the game" will be able to be played "as you go." Or essential mobile versions of the games.

It seems like a player won't be able to actually finish the game without connecting it to the TV. It is unknown which games will have this capability just yet.
