Report: Nintendo rolls out NX software development kits

Report: Nintendo rolls out NX software development kits
October 16, 2015 | By Chris Kerr




According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo has already started sending out software development kits for its upcoming NX console.

Dev kits are sent out to third-party developers so they can create software for a new system in time for launch, indicating Nintendo is looking to bring developers onside with a view to releasing the NX next year. 

Speaking to the WSJ, Macquarie Capital Securities analyst David Gibson explained that the "softness" of the Wii U and 3DS means that launching the NX in 2016 is quickly becoming a no-brainer. 

Adding more fuel to the fire, the WSJ has stated that people "familiar with the [NX] development plans" believe the NX will be not one, but two devices, with Nintendo packaging a console alongside a handheld system that can be used together or separately. 

They also explained that, after the Wii U was heckled by many for failing to match the technical capabilities of its next-gen competitors, Nintendo will ensure the NX is up to scratch by putting "industry-leading chips" in the device.
