Nintendo’s upcoming console, the Nintendo NX has been a victim of rumors on the internet for a couple of months. It was expected that the company might reveal its new console during the E3 2016 event, but that didn’t happen as Nintendo planned to reveal the console later this year.
However, there are several reports related to console’s specs, release, the hardware and interests of several game developers such as Ubisoft for the Nintendo NX were surfacing over the internet. Last month we reported the alleged pictures of the Nintendo NX, which appears to be a handheld console. Later on, there were also reports that the console will have detachable controllers and just now, a report from Let’s Play Video Games claims that the detachable Nintendo NX controllers will be supported with motion control, similar Wii Plus remote along with “advanced vibration force feedback”.
The report also suggests that the new controllers are designed to “phase out” the Wii U remote, while the old Wii U remote can be used for some games, not with every game. The report also mentions that the rumor was from a trusted source, which was later verified by two individuals. It says that the function of force feedback is quite similar to the Vive controller as;
“… in that it alters intensity, pulsing patterns and duration of vibration to mimic the sensation of a range of different movement types. It’s not just one vibration for all situations, there’s a notable difference between the hard abrupt feedback of a sword clash or the softer, longer thud of something like hitting a tennis ball.”
Furthermore, it claims that the Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2017 will support the detachable Nintendo NX controllers and the Wii remotes for the multiplayer. Just Dance 2017 will be released for the console on its first day.
The new Nintendo NX is scheduled for release some time in March 2017. As per the recent reports, Nintendo will reveal the console on September 21st during an event hosted especially for the new console. Stay tuned for more updates!
