With less than six months to release, it has increasingly become a test of patience in how long we have had to hold out for Nintendo NX‘s eventual reveal.
It’s still unclear as to precisely when that will be, which means that we are left to speculate over any leaks and rumours that continue to emerge. The latest has appeared on Reddit, and has been verified to have come from a source that works at “a very large retailer” in the United States.
“We have verified that our source works for a very large retailer. We have verified that this source is in a position to have access to this sort of information,” Nintendo NX subreddit moderator FlapSnapple clarifies. “Exact details of what was provided will not be released. We take protecting the identity of our sources very seriously. Our source has added the disclaimer that this is all initial information and subject to change as time goes on.”
Breaking down the information that has been passed to the subreddit to help safeguard the source’s identity, the details centre around the dedicated game platform‘s marketing plans, packaging, features and specs, and an undisclosed bundle that will be priced at $399.99.
The marketing campaign will concentrate on how players can interact with their games on the go, with a new Mario game said to play a significant role in advertising the console’s launch. There’s another nod toward the console using cartridges, supporting 4K streaming, and Nintendo will look to promote how many games will run at 1080p and 60fps when the handheld is docked with the console.
