Nintendo stalls on NX console, teases new smartphone games

Tech Industry
Nintendo's next console won't be ready for another year, but you don't have to wait long for new Nintendo games on your smart phone. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your cnet update. [BLANK_AUDIO] Well there's no reason to buy a Wii U this year because Nintendo just announced that its next game console, code named Nintendo NX. Is coming out next year in March 2017. The company's fiscal year earnings report indicated that this NX system is going to be a brand new concept. So don't think of it as a new Wii. We don't know much about what the new NX is gonna be but there are some clues. Reports suggest this is a hybrid concept. It might blur together the portable Nintendo DS concept with a home system. So you could take some games on the go. Nintendo filed a patent application last year that featured this image of a new oval touch screen controller. Nintendo said it will not show the NX at the big E3 video game conference in In June, instead it will reveal details later in the year. Now here's something you don't have to wait too long for, more Nintendo smart phone games. The company announced Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem are coming to mobile app store this spring Nintendo launched the Miitomo app last month, which is more of a social thing than a real game game. It gets boring really quickly. But animal crossing could certainly be more addicting as a time wasting casual mobile game. This series has been around since 2002. You live in a little town and collect fruit and go fishing and build a home and talk to animals and send them letters, it goes on forever. Later this year, Nintendo is launching with could be an even bigger mobile game, Pokémon GO Nine minutes of beta test footage was leaked online by YouTube channel Game Previews. Once you customize your character's look you would turn on the phone's GPS and roam around the real world until the app alerts you of a Pokemon nearby to catch or to battle. It'll use the live feed from your phone's camera to make it look like Pokemon are standing in front of you on the street. Outside of the gaming world there's a brand new app that's getting some buzz for being different but It could also just be a flop. The app is called Talkshow and you have these text message conversations with friends where anyone can publicly observe your conversation. I tried it out a bit, and I don't really see the appeal to texting live in public when you could just do that on Twitter and on Twitter people can interact with you back. on Talkshow the only people that can talk back are the ones you allow to talk to you so It's a text form of podcasting. It's unique but. That's al for this tech news roundup. You can go to Cnet dot com for more. From our studios in New York I'm Bridget Carey [MUSIC].
