With Nintendo’s announcement that they are developing their next generation console currently codenamed as “Nintendo NX,” fans took it upon themselves to give suggestions on what they want to see in the device.

Although it is still unconfirmed if it is handheld or a portable one, Expert Reviews assumes that it is more likely to become a successor to Wii U. What added to the speculations is that Nintendo recently launched the new 3DS which has a powerful CPU and a better 3D head-tracking technology.

The report added that it may have an integrated Blu-ray system likened to Sony and Microsoft as the player is becoming a staple component of any modern gaming device. It may also add more downloadable games via its online shop either through direct download or by subscriptions, following what has been done for Wii U eShop, while others hope for some classic GameCube games to become more accessible as well.

Capturing videos and sharing them through social media is another feature expected to become a part of it. With games “Animal Crossing: New Leaf” and “Tomodachi Life” having the aforementioned elements because of 3DS’s Image Share feature, it seems logical that they carry over to Nintendo NX.

Moreover, as previously announced that they will have a better reward scheme through co-developing a cross-platform Club Nintendo with new mobile partner NeDa, it is expected that gamers will receive better gifts without saving many points to avail them.

Meanwhile, earlier this year, a spokesperson from the company has shut down the rumors that they will utilize Google’s Android to become their operating system for NX as speculated by Japanese news outlet Nikkei, “There is no truth to the report saying that we are planning to adopt Android for NX,” he simply stated to Wall Street Journal.

When it comes to the release date, reports claim that Nintendo NX may arrive sometime during the first or second quarter of next year.
