Nintendo’s upcoming NX console will be a portable, handheld device with detachable controllers that uses cartridges as it’s physical media according to Eurogamer. A recent tweet from Eurogamer deputy news editor Tom Phillips, shows the illustration.
On the move, NX will function as a high-powered handheld console with its own display. So far so normal – but here’s the twist: we’ve heard the screen is bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached or detached as required.
Then, when you get home, the system can connect to your TV for gaming on the big screen.
A base unit, or dock station, is used to connect the brain of the NX – within the controller – to display on your TV.
