This week on the Lost Spark Podcast we have a pipe full of Nintendo news, with fresh rumours appearing regarding the NX and its detachable controllers. According to a news report via Eurogamer and LetsPlayVideoGames the detachable controllers clip on to either side of the portable’s main unit and will feature Wii-style motion sensors and vibration.
Other NX rumours have included the addition of a ‘Social’ button on the NX controller which will allow you to instantly share footage and screen-grabs of your games to social media platforms; this is an interesting turn around from a normally very protective Nintendo.
In an interview with website alistdaily Reggie Fils-Aimé said “We have to do better when we launch NX” and “[Nintendo must] have that continuous beat of great new games that are motivating more and more people to pick up the hardware and more and more people to pick up the software,” he added. “Those are the critical lessons.”
