“There is no truth to the report saying that we are planning to adopt Android for NX,” a Nintendo spokesman said breaking the heart of millions of Android and Nintendo fans alike. A recent report claimed that the Next Gen Nintendo Console, dubbed as the Nintendo NX could adopt Android as its operating system.
Using Android, Nintendo would be able to easily lure developers to build games for the NX. Android is the world’s most popular mobile operating system and has a huge developer community. It seemed like a logical step for Nintendo but the company has other plans up its sleeve.
While analysts could mostly see the positives of an Android-based Nintendo game console, they also said possible security issues may not mesh well with Nintendo’s strategy of appealing to non-core gaming audiences such as children, women and families.
The Nintendo NX is supposedly coming out at this years E3 Developers Conference. We will update once we receive any more information.
