Forums - Nintendo Discussion - New NX details from Ubisoft dev; portable device will launch first (rumor)

Is it real?

Yes
No
John Cena in Smash is realer!

Just found this on 4chan. Don't know if it could be real, but I thought it would be interesting to share: 

"Some days ago I had been in contact with an Ubisoft Bucharest developer. Now, my last few days have been very busy with the start into the new year. I hope you all had a great start into 2016. That's why I'm writing that now and after he told it to me. So apperently Ubisoft Bucharest have recieved some NX dev kits in October 2015. And after experimenting a bit with the new hardware they started developing games for it. But now we come to the interesting thing: According to him, NX is a portable device and a home console. There will be two different devices, the handheld and the home console, the first one will launch in late 2016, while the home console will probably launch sometimes in 2017. They only recieved dev kits for the handheld as of now. He said they are both different systems but they share the same OS and account system, which makes it easier to him as developer to port games between both platforms. He also said that Nintendo probably doesn't intend to bring all their games to both systems, but he will find out more on this at CES 2016 where Nintendo will show them more of the hardware capabilities as well as the home console. Now I asked him what Ubisoft Bucharest is developing for the portable NX device and he answered that they are preparing a port of Assassin's Creed Liberation, a PlayStation Vita game, for it as a launch title. He said when they were asked by the Ubisoft managers in France what they want to develop they said they wanted to port an Assassin's Creed game to the handheld because they have a lot of experience in porting.

I also asked him what other Ubisoft devs are doing with the new hardware and he said he doesn't anything concrete but Ubisoft Montpellier is probably working on a new Rayman game and Ubisoft Montreal may also work a game. However Ubisoft doesn't work on any games for the home console currently.

He didn't want to say anything about the hardware itself because its specs may vary in the final product."

Do you think this is real? I don't know. Do like it if it's true?

There are so many things wrong in that "revelation" that's not even funny.

I have no idea if it's real or not. But if it's true, I don't know if a port of Liberation is a good idea. Assassins Creed didn't sell spectacularly on the WiiU, and Liberation is not precisely the flagship game of the franchise.


Time to get some crow.

Smells like confirmed.



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

Nintendo already got the flagship AC imo ( no pun intended) ACIV blackflag!

What? Why? Ubisoft making 3 Games for the portable device that are probably launch titles would be amazing!
