The Pokemon Company CEO Pretty Much Confirmed That Nintendo NX Is A Hybrid Console

Tsunekazu Ishihara, who is The Pokemon Company’s CEO has seemingly confirmed that the NX is a hybrid console of sorts.

“The NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a hand-held device,” said Mr. Ishihara.

Furthermore, Ishihara confirmed that The Pokemon Company will be making games for the Nintendo NX. Will this potentially mean that we’ll get the next iteration of Pokemon on both a handheld and home console?

“will make games for the NX.” continued Mr. Ishihara

None of this is really breaking news, but it’s definitely the most damning evidence of the fact that the Nintendo NX is almost definitely a home console and portable hybrid.

The Nintendo NX is due for release in March 2017. We’d expect an official reveal in the coming months.
