Square Enix open to Bringing Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn to the Nintendo NX


Square Enix and Nintendo “seem” to have something going with the Nintendo NX, because another game could be heading to Nintendo next system. According to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’s producer Naoki Yoshida, he is open to bringing his game to the NX. Yoshida is waiting to know when the console will be released, and Nintendo’s policies when it comes to cross-platform play (which Nintendo is open to on Wii U/3DS). Just remember, the negotiations have not started yet, and Yoshida is also open to bringing the game to Xbox One. Via: Nintendo Everything, Source: Dualshockers

Dragon Quest X & Dragon Quest XI are Coming to the Nintendo NX


Yo! Rumors busted in one big swoop. Square Enix’s official press release for Dragon Quest XI says that the company is “considering launching on Nintendo’s in development NX platform”. At the Dragon Quest presentation this morning, Square Enix said both Dragon Quest X and Dragon Quest XI are coming to the Nintendo NX.

Nintendo hasn’t formally announced the Nintendo NX, so Square Enix couldn’t say too much, (or maybe they weren’t supposed to say too much) but it looks like Dragon Quest is coming to Nintendo next system.

More Hints AMD is Powering the Nintendo NX’s Processor


While nothing is confirmed at this time, evidence is building that AMD will power the Nintendo NX’s processor. Here are some tidbits from a VentureBeat article on the matter.

- AMD has won a third semi-custom chip design
- the promise of these chip designs is that they could yield products that could generate a billion dollars in sales
- AMD would have to enable a way for the new console to use software translation in order to run older Wii and Wii U games

The following comes from Patrick Moorhead, an analyst with Moor Insights & Strategy

- “I think it’s a very high probability (of AMD pairing with Nintendo) unless Nintendo goes Android where I would expect them to go with Nvidia.”

Could Nintendo Launch the Nintendo NX Successfully in July? - Nintendo Enthusiast


Our friends over at Nintendo Enthusiast have posted an interesting article, discussing the possibility of Nintendo launching their next system in July compared to the holiday seasons. If you don’t like NX/sales talk, please ignore this article. Check out a few snippets below.

“If Nintendo sees 60% of its sales in the fall, it may seem at first glance that the holiday season would be the ideal time to launch a product. If we dig deeper, however, this may not necessarily be so true. Perhaps the reason why the holiday is so successful is because of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Nintendo’s biggest games (Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, Super Smash Bros) tend to launch in the holiday, so of course it makes sense that during this period of the year sales are far higher than during the spring or summer months.”

“A great example of this is Mario Kart 8, which launched in May, and is the highest-selling Wii U game to date. Fire Emblem Awakening and Bravely Default, both February launches, performed very well in the States. It seems like games tend to sell based on the property and quality, rather than their launch month. If a console were to launch during non-holiday season, it is more than likely that a good price and appealing product could sell more than enough consoles.”

“Nintendo has stated that it would share more information on the Nintendo NX next year, but did not say specify whether we would see this initial information at E3 or beforehand. With Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem seemingly being the only 2016 release for the Wii U, Nintendo could absolutely announce the NX officially at an event in February, then continue to slowly release information on the console leading up to E3 (through Nintendo Directs and small press-releases). Then, with a massive showing at E3 2016, the company could surely launch the NX in late July or early August.”

Nintendo Starting Pilot Productions on Nintendo NX in October for 2016 Launch - Rumor


An article in the DigiTimes has stated that Nintendo is set to launch their next console, codenamed the NX, in July of 2016. The console will be manufactured by Foxconn Electronics, while Pegatron Technology will be trying to receive some of the orders. Apparently, the orders are set to be complete around February or March of 2016, with major production starting in May/June for a July launch. They’re looking to ship 20 million units in the first year….. which is just a little bit over the 2 million the Wii U has shipped this year (sarcasm). Remember, this is a rumor, but it does seem we could be seeing a 2016 launch for the NX with software coming to Wii U AND NX. Via: GoNintendo, Source: DigitTimes
