1st off all we already know this is true. Nintendo said before they were brain storming ideas. We don’t know any of the ideas other then their next Home Console and Handheld will have similar architecture. The Wii U was started in the blue print stages like a year after the Wii came out. So its no surprise Nintendo would be doing this. All Nintendo does is games and gaming so they cant ever stop planning. Plus it seems to be some random guy saying this lol. Anyway,
A rumour that has originated on NeoGAF suggests that Nintendo started working on a brand new platform in early 2013. The platform is supposedly a handheld, which would make it the successor to the Nintendo 3DS. This is a rumour, but it’s likely that Nintendo has already begun planning the followup to the successful 3DS console.
Almost certainly off-topic, but I don’t quite want to make a new thread, because it would go to shit quickly. Also, I’d need to post a source, and I don’t really want to get people in trouble. Anyway, Nintendo apparently started working on a new platform in early 2013 and has already selected a vendor for the SoC after talking to several potential candidates. The SoC might be based on an existing design, but will be changed to fit Nintendo’s requirements. I assume it’s for their next handheld, though.
