LinkedIn profile for software engineer gives some insight into NX development

Steven Chith
Software Engineer

I'm currently working on Nintendo's next console, code named "NX"​. It's so secretive that sometimes even I don't know what I'm working on. Suffice to say, I'm primarily doing embedded system development.

Part of a 6-dev team coding multimedia drivers.

Well, that date is certainly very interesting. That's the first time we've seen anything that gives us an actual timestamp on work for the NX. Seems like Steven has been working on aspects of the NX since all the way back in Feb. of 2015! Thanks to Dakhil for the heads up!

Japan - Bird Mania Party hitting Wii U next week

It may not be the most exciting title, but it's a title nonetheless. It has been confirmed that Bird Mania Party is going to hit the Wii U eShop in Japan on Feb. 17th. As we've already stated, 3DS titles slated for next week include Brain Training with Bingo: Bingo Training! and Mario & Sonic AT the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Project Elea could come to NX

Playing as Elea, you will navigate the hallways, control rooms and ecosystems of Pilgrimage II, the ship set to colonize Solace, a yet unexplored Earth-like exoplanet. In order to save the ship and uncover the mystery behind the disappearance of pioneering mission Pilgrimage I 15 years ago, you’ll have to aid crippled Kazumi in fighting off an eccentric invasive intelligence that wants to take control, that has been waiting in the darkness of space, preparing…

As Elea explores clues and executes manual overrides to restore Kazumi’s hijacked virtual memory, she will slowly come to realize it’s the lapses in her own memory and the imprints of a personal tragedy that she must deal with first.

Obviously the devs behind Project Elea will need some more information on NX before they can 100% confirm the release. Let's hope that the details end up being just what the devs need!
