*UPDATE (27/08/16): Following Let’s Play Video Games NX report, Emily Rogers has since taken to Twitter to say there is some truth in what LPVG reported and that there is also some truth to MCV’s report about GameFreak being involved with the Nintendo NX.
Still she didn’t just stop there, she also had a few NX “details/rumours for us to chew on and they are the Prototype of the NX had a 6.2 inch 720 multi-touch touch screen, Rogers states in her tweet that the final product’s screen size could be larger or even smaller than the screen the prototype has. She also says the NX’s dock station does have 2 USB ports, but that could change as the final product could go on to have more, or less.
It’s that time again for another Nintendo NX related rumour and this time it comes from Let’s Play Video Games, a site that came to be after former Destructiod UK staff members banded together to make something new.
In a rumour post you can find on their site by clicking right here, LPVG back up Eurogamer’s claim that the Nintendo NX will in fact feature detachable controllers, but are essentially a newer version of the Wii Remote Plus, as they do utilise motion controls and an “advanced vibration force feedback.” Furthermore it seems these detachable remotes will In fact go on to replace the Wii remotes in over an unspecified period of time, so although Wii remotes can be used for some multiplayer gamers, they won’t work for all multiplayer NX titles. One title that does let you use your Wii remote Just Dance 2017, which is to release around the same time the NX does, so it looks like Just Dance 2017 will in fact be a launch title for the Nintendo NX.
As for the Force Feedback aspect of the controller, according to the information LPVG received prior to posting their report, is “very similar to the Vive controller, in that it alters intensity, pulsing patterns and duration of vibration to mimic the sensation of a range of different movement types. It’s not just one vibration for all situations, there’s a notable difference between the hard abrupt feedback of a sword clash or the softer, longer thud of something like hitting a tennis ball.”
If it is further information you are after, sadly that is all LPVG had to report at this time, should they come out with any additional details, we will be sure to keep you posted. However, please bear in mind that until the above information is confirmed to be, it is a just a rumour, something we are not in short demand of.
