TPHD is co-developed by Tantalus and Star Fox Zero is co-developed by Platinum Games. Main development is done at EPD. And Kimishima said there are more unannounced Wii U games, he wants more Splatoon-like games on the Wii U etc. That's more than one time. There's more to come. If not, Kimishima is a liar.

Even Iwata said that after the NX launch there will be more Wii U and 3DS software, because everything else would be ineffective.

Again Kimishima said more Wii U and 3DS games and he said that in late October before TPHD,SFG & PM were annonuce his most recent statement about unannounced games was about the 3DS not the Wii U,also he said that yes he wants more games like Splatoon and SMM but he didn't said on what platform,TPHD is made by Tantulus and supervised by Aonuma much like OoT3D,MM3D and HW were,as far as SFZ goes nobody can say for sure how Nintendo and PG are making it so neither you or I can say for sure were the main development of the game is being made

Actually I can tell for SFZ. In an Interview the Platinum devs stated that they worked on the project by themselves with Miyamoto going to their office almost every day and sometimes bringing a couple Nintendo employees to either show them how the development was going/ help giguring out some problems...

This is fake simply because they re saying handheld replacement before home console.
I dont buy that at all... the 3DS is in a much better place than the Wii U.

Wii U needs to be replaced more than the 3DS does.
Also those rumors of them stopping manufacturing of the Wii U soon... yeah they need a new console out before 2017.

3DS isn't in a good place. Sales are falling and Nintendo had to lower their forecast. It's about to die. And lol, if Nintendo launches an new home console this year when the PS4k, PSVR and maybe the new Xbox launch, it will be dead on arrival. Nintendo wouldn't risk that. After the Wii U they will go the safe path and launch it in 2017.

The handheld will come last. Nintendo NEEDS to replace the WiiU, but the 3DS still moves enough hardware and software to make it interesting at leas one year more. Handheld will come in 2017, home console this year.

The 3DS is selling below acceptable numbers, so it needs a successor. Such a device should have launched last holiday season, but the NX strategy necessitated a longer lifecycle for the 3DS. I expect both a home console and a handheld to launch this year.

This rumor was written on the premise that things will stay as they are, so handheld and home console will launch in that order and be very similar to their predecessors. But everything Nintendo has said so far points to a direction that will divert from their eighth gen systems. Even putting that aside though, why would Nintendo make a home console that is essentially a Wii U with better specs?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Still 3DS sales are WAAAAAAY better than Wii U ones and certainly are making profits for Nintendo, PS4k is anything but confirmed, PSVR isn't a thread since as of now it can only have an instal base of 40M people and Phil Spencer explained that his wording wasn't meant to say that they are working on new hardware. Also who says that if said consoles were to happen NX couldn't be on the same level as them ?

All these NX rumours is getting out of hand. The only trustworthy rumours I've heard about the NX came from supermetaldave64 on Youtube, also known as trevor something on neogaf.

The only Reliable rumor that i heard about the NX, is that Nintendo, will launch a Wii U's Sucessor.

Almost nobody would buy a Nintendo home console then. Look at the Wii U. It sold 13 million units 3.5 years. Nintendo has almost no customers left. If they launch it when their competetitors release new hardware it will be the next flop.

No way is Nintendo going to wait until late 2017 to release a replacement for the dead WIi U, so this "leak" is BS.

and why shouldn't they wait? They are still making a ton of Wii U software. It isn't dead.

Because the Wii U isn't selling very well. If it wasn't selling so bad, the NX would be more likely to launch next year than this year.

1. Nintendo is DOA if they launch hardware earlier than Sony and Microsoft, because then they'll be behind in specs.
2. Nintendo is DOA if they launch hardware at the same time as Sony and Microsoft, because they'll get overshadowed.
3. Nintendo is DOA if they launch hardware after Sony and Microsoft, because they'll lag behind in installed base.

Indeed, that holds true for people with simplistic views. A broader perspective would make a person consider symmetric and asymmetric competition.
