Nintendo NX release news: Koei Tecmo Games to work on NX games


Japanese game developer and publisher Koei Tecmo Games recently announced that it will be supporting Nintendo’s new and upcoming dedicated gaming console platform, the Nintendo NX. While specific details are still being kept under wraps as of the moment, the game company will soon start working on a game that will be released for the new console.

In their recently released financial report for the company’s 2015 fiscal year, Koei Tecmo Games mentioned something about support for a console. The fiscal year report said that the company will be having support for Nintendo’s newest console that will come next year, the Nintendo NX.

However, Koei Tecmo Games was not able to confirm or announce what the first title will be. If options will be explored, possible titles might be from the “Hyrule Warriors” to probably even an entirely new IP that will be introduced along with the new console.

Koei Tecmo Games has been working with Nintendo for a long time and is one of the companies that kept on supporting the latter’s consoles through the years. More recently, Koei Tecmo released new “Hyrule Warriors” games for Nintendo’s consoles, including the spin-off game “Hyrule Warriors Legends” for the Nintendo 3DS handheld.

The Nintendo NX was announced for a release date of March 2017. As announced by Nintendo, the new and upcoming NX console will be a dedicated gaming platform that will work in synergy with the company’s smart gaming business in order to maximize the experience of their popular and new IPs.

“For the purpose of maximizing the population that interacts with Nintendo IP, we have entered into the smart device gaming business,” the company said. “We will aim to create a synergetic effect between the smart device business and Nintendo’s dedicated game system business to maximize the Nintendo businesses overall by growing our smart device business so that it is profitable on its own while continuously strengthening our connection with our consumers by enhancing features of our new membership service called My Nintendo.”
