“The NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a hand-held device,” said Mr. Ishihara. “We will make games for the NX.”

Hybrid confirmed?

TOKYO—Pokémon Co.’s chief executive said Tuesday his company plans to create games for Nintendo Co.’s next-generation system, which people familiar with the plans say is likely to meld features of traditional consoles and hand-held devices.

He said more features were planned for “Pokémon Go,” including player-to-player battles and character trades. But these features will come slowly to avoid overwhelming entry-level players, he added.

needs some "SHOCKING NEWS" in the thread title.

Well if they make a mainline Pokémon game for it then it pretty much guarantees that I will get it whenever the game comes around... Pokémon is pretty much the only thing that I bought an N3Ds XL for so, yeah.

Does the fact that they're talking about it mean we're starting to get close to Nintendo announcing a date for them to announce the date when we can buy an NX?

Trying to change what handheld/home console means was something they kept repeating.

Or do you mean Pokemon for NX? I think they can deal with that.
