Latest Nintendo Switch Updates

There are tons of gaming enthusiast podcasts out in the wild, but almost none of the top-tier podcasts are made specifically for Nintendo fans. That's where we come in! We here at Gamnesia are bringing you a new episode of "Nintendo Week," a podcast made for Nintendo fans by Nintendo fans.

This week we're joined by Braxton Burks, the creator of the popular Pokémon Reorchestrated fan project, to discuss a huge amount of Pokémon news, including the Virtual Console rereleases, Pokémon GO, and the announcement of Gen VII. Plus we address an extremely juicy new set of NX rumors that detail all the goals of the system, and it sounds crazy enough to work like magic. After the break we introduce a new segment called Places and People, where we sit down to chat with various people from around the Nintendosphere. You can check out the episode after the jump—or if you'd like to save it to listen later, you can check the latest episode out on iTunes, available now.

A leak has reportedly been made regarding Nintendo's mysterious upcoming console, known simply as the NX. The leaker calls himself 'Geno' and has made a number of leaks in the past which proved to be true. He claims that Nintendo's next console will have a detachable HDMI dongle, it will have haptic feedback in joysticks, its power is comparable to Microsoft's Xbox One, and any game that can run on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 can easily be made to run on the NX with almost no modification needed.

A YouTuber named SuperMetalDave64 has recently published tons of information from a credited source at Nintendo of America, one of which claimed that Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy VII Remake are both coming to Nintendo's next platform.

This was one of the talking points on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video after the jump for our full thoughts on the idea of a partnership with Roy Lee, or keep reading for a brief, brief summary.

Rumors for the Nintendo NX have been swirling around the internet ever since Nintendo teased the console last year. According to a member from NeoGAF, the Nintendo NX will be receiving a "high profile" port from a big third party developer. Due to a non-disclosure agreement, they could not delve into any more details than that, but the user did say that gamers will be very pleased.

Just the other day one of the developers behind Unravel explained that they'd love to get their game to Nintendo's upcoming NX console, but that they're basically unable to do anything with that desire due to the intense secrecy under which the console is being held. That story made the rounds, and now another developer has stepped forward to comment on Nintendo's approach. In a NeoGAF thread on the subject and with a lot less passivity, Ori and the Blind Forest director Thomas Mahler expressed that secrecy like this from console creators is the "most annoying thing for every dev out there."

As Mahler explained, his team also contacted Nintendo and got zero information out of them from which to work on games for the upcoming NX, and Mahler says he'll "never understand that." He says that secrecy like this is ludicrous and will more than likely lead to weak third party support for NX early on, as developers need to know things like the specs way in advance of putting a game on a console.

More inside.

There's been an avalanche of Nintendo rumors over the past few weeks thanks to SuperMetalDave64 of NintenGen. Dave has shared rumors regarding Final Fantasy XV and the Final Fantasy VII remake on Nintendo NX, Zelda on NX, NX support for Unreal Engine 4, and the 3DS lineup for 2016. As with all rumors a heavy dose of skepticism is healthy, but Dave claimed to be getting his information from a Nintendo of America employee, and a NeoGAF administrator has verified the source.

If you clicked any of the highlighted links above, you probably noticed that none of the videos are working. It seems that Dave has removed all of these rumor videos along with the corresponding NintenGen posts. No explanation has been given for their removal at this time. We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Coldwood Interactive's gorgeous new puzzle platformer, Unravel, has been with us for a few weeks now on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. However, in a recent interview, the game's developer said that he would love Unravel to be available on the NX, Nintendo's upcoming console. In the interview he said "The more ways we have to reach the audience, the better," but Nintendo is being "really secretive" about the NX. Since Nintendo isn't saying much, there have been a lot of rumors about the NX, including one stating the console will release later this year with Zelda U as the launch title.

Recently there's been an avalanche of Nintendo rumors from NintenGen's SuperMetalDave64, covering 3DS and Wii U plans, NX launch titles, and more. Dave claimed to have inside information from a Nintendo employee regarding NX support of Unreal Engine 4an NX version of Zeldaa Pokémon 20th Anniversary game, and Final Fantasy games on NX.

Evidence to support these rumors has been scarce (although at least one detail was corroborated by another source), but they're picking up steam now. The staff at NeoGAF has been in contact with Dave's source, and admin Bishoptl claims that the source checks out. Dave stated that his source was a Nintendo of America marketing employee, and NeoGAF agrees. Of course, this shouldn't be considered confirmation. An error could have been made, but this certainly makes these rumors seem more credible than before.

Mega publisher EA claimed to have an "unprecedented partnership" with Nintendo on Wii U, but whatever relationship the two companies had quickly dissolved and EA abandoned support for the struggling console. According to industry insider Liam Robertson (known for getting the inside scoop on cancelled games for Unseen64), EA has Nintendo NX dev kits, and the two companies are set to meet next month to discuss their partnership going forward.

Since this initial report, Robertson has shared more information with Nintendo Life. According to his sources, EA was one of the first third-party companies to receive an NX dev kit, and Nintendo wants them to be a key partner going forward. However, EA has a few issues they want addressed first, mostly revolving around Nintendo's lack of support for sports fans. Click below for more.

About a year ago, Nintendo teased that they were working on new hardware under the code name NX. Official information has been scarce, but the rumor mill has been as active as can be. According to multiple reports, Nintendo NX dev kits have been sent out to some third-party partners, but strict non-disclosure agreements are in place to keep anything from leaking.

That said, industry insiders like Liam Robertson (known for uncovering details on cancelled games for Unseen64) have been passing along tidbits from their inside sources. According to a tweet from Robertson, mega publisher EA is among those with a Nintendo NX development kit, and the two companies will be meeting in March to discuss potential plans. Robertson believes that EA's interest in NX is still very much in the early stages, and that EA is still unsure about developing for the platform.

YouTuber SuperMetalDave64 who runs NintenGen has been posting a series of juicy rumors which he claims come from a verified Nintendo of America employee. As with all rumors, we advise you to be skeptical, but some of what he claims has been corroborated by other sources. In addition to reporting that NX supports Unreal Engine 4, two Final Fantasy games are coming to NX, and a Pokémon 20th Anniversary game is on the way, Dave claims to have inside info on the NX launch.

According to his sources, Nintendo NX will be launching in 2016, as many have speculated. Additionally, he reports that "Zelda NX" is set to release at launch or during the launch window, which would end in March, 2017. Although not explicitly stated, it appears that he's referring to an NX version of the Zelda game already in development for Wii U, as he states "Nintendo is trying to release Zelda Wii U and Zelda NX at the same time period for the holiday season 2016."

Years after its reveal, indie puzzle game The Witness finally launched on PlayStation 4 and PC on January 26th, and there are indications that it will come to Xbox One as well. But what about Nintendo? Developer Jonathan Blow responded to this question on Twitter, stating that it's unlikely he could bring the game to Wii U, but he "will see" about Nintendo's next console, the mysterious NX.

Blow has previously stated that the game needs at least 5 gigabytes of RAM to work with, and Wii U only has 1 gigabyte of RAM dedicated to games. However, the specs of Nintendo's next console remain unknown, so anything's possible. Would you like to see The Witness on a Nintendo platform in the future?

We've recently seen a lot of rumors about the NX, specifically regarding the ability to support Unreal Engine 4 and the amount of dev kits that have been made available to developers. The source of these rumors, YouTuber "SuperMetaldave64," has given us yet another one. According to an unnamed source, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Final Fantasy XV will be ported to the NX. This source isn't a developer on either project, but apparently he has been correct about some rumors in the past. We don't have any sort of evidence that this is true, though, so it's important to take this rumor with a grain of salt.

There have been tons of rumors about the NX swirling around ever since Nintendo first mentioned the existence of their next console. But in the past few weeks, we've heard a few that particularly caught our eye: first Kimishima said that Nintendo will share details on NX "not too late" in 2016, which lends credence to the speculation that the console will launch later this year. A developer also speculated that it's coming out this year, based on information they heard from Nintendo that they're giving dev kits only to a select few developers.

In this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, this came up as one of our subjects for The Gossip Stone. The Gossip Stone is a new segment we debuted last week where we discuss recent Nintendo-related rumors and determine where they're "True," or "Trubbish." Check out the discussion video after the jump for our full thoughts on the truth behind this Mother 3 rumor, as well as some speculation about its English title, its release date, and more.
