Finally, Nintendo NX is a thing. The thing is called Switch, a hybrid system able to be a console or a portable machine. Switch will use cartridges, will connect to a dock to at least charge and enable the TV out connection and during the presentation we saw an ephemeral footage for a new 3D Mario in development for Switch.

Nintendo has to confirm a lot of points to clear the official stand about Switch, but until then, we have some rumors for this new piece of hardware:

Nintendo Switch Specifications:

  • Four ARM Cortex-A57 cores, max 2GHz
  • NVidia second-generation Maxwell architecture
  • 256 CUDA cores, max 1 GHz, 1024 FLOPS/cycle
  • 4GB RAM (25.6 GB/s, VRAM shared)
  • 32 GB storage (Max transfer 400 MB/s)

New information:

Switch Games:

  • Splatoon, Mario Kart, Smash Bros and Zelda would be enhanced ports, but not new developments.
  • The new Beyond Good & Evil game could be a Switch exclusive. The game confirmed by Michael Ancel some days ago, would be a half-reboot. The tale of Jade would be re-built to expand the beginning of the story and would continue when the first game ended.

No concrete details:

And that’s all for now.
