Never...

So most of of know Ninty can bang out a very nice handheld with killer software. We also know that they are most likely developing a new handheld as we speak. Release date is unknown, but it's probably in development.

My question is what do you want from the next Ninty handheld? Be as broad, or specific as possible. Talk about capabilities, specs, launch games, etc.

This is my Wishlist: (somewhat reasonable)

  • Full synergy with the next Nintendo home console. Full synergy meaning being able to play those handheld games on the TV with my next Nintendo home console.
  • Linked account system (hopefully they hammer this out within the next few years). To be able to have all my games linked to an account system would be nice.
  • Dual screens (like the DS and 3DS; keep the 2 screens going)
  • Multi touch (like the Vita, not the 3DS)
  • Specs wise... I know nothing about this, I want to say around the level of the Vita's. Is the 3DS in 240p, while the Vita is 544p? One of you can describe what you want from specs better than me.
  • Backwards compadible with 3DS games
  • No proprietary memory sticks, keep the SD cards.

In terms of ONE killer launch game, I'd love...

Pokemon Yellow Remake for... I'll call the 9th gen Nintendo handheld, the 4DS!

Thoughts? And what do U want for the next Nintendo Handheld?

To be not overpriced like the 3DS was initially ...



Something that feels premium... If theres one thing the Vita got right was just how premium the handheld felt, specially with that OLED screen (which is sadly removed on the new one). Also an account system that isn't locked to the console as well as dual analog sticks.

As for launch games, I want a killer new IP. Like a good one! And yea, the rest you already mentioned

Oh and More Anime games

Damn... Forgot about that price point. 

Very true!



Not to replace their console division, or interfere with it as much as 3DS.

Finally ran out of space for all my currently running bets. See "about me" for the full list.

Lol... "Like a good one." Who wants a bad new IP, a crazy masochist? xD
I just hope they don't cheap out, 3DS feels so cheap compared to the vita in all honesty. 

Also forgot dual analog sticks!

See I'm more of the opposite. I like the handhelds more, but I understand your reasoning being more a fan of the home consoles. 



2 fucking joysticks, thumb-pads or whatever their called.

This.

 

Also hopefully no more 3D (zing! :P) and hopefully better battery life.

Also two joysticks/analog sticks along with the dpad.

I also think they should release their next handheld in 2017 or 2018 with an announcement/rumors of announcement/showcase in 2016.

Dual analog and triggers. And everything you said.

Just a friendly reminder that I did, in fact, graduate kindergarten, that I do, in fact, understand what an opinion is, and that I am, in fact, aware that whatever I just said was one. Carry on. :^)
