That would still result in 2 versions of the same game being sold in stores, which would be counter-intuitive to the whole "shared platform" thing.
Prestigious Japanese videogame console maker Nintendo will launch a new console called NX this year. General Manager of Macronix, CY Lu, said Macronix will provide products for NX and that Macronix has considerable expectations to NX.
In the afternoon, Macronix had held an online conference for investors. As Nintendo is going to launch new console NX this year, investors concern about if Macronix, which have a long-term cooperative relationship with Nintendo, is still part of NX's supply chain.
CY Lu said Macronix will supply memory slots for NX, and that the company has considerable expectation to NX.
Even though CY Lu declined to comment whether the supplied products are ROM, he said he expects ROM sales this year will be exceptional.

It'll probably be the former, seeing as Panasonic is nowhere to be found in the list of manufacturers.This is much better, thanks a lot!
So I guess is a safe bet to assume both handheld and console will run on a cartridge. Or at least the Console will have a slot to insert a cartridge.
It'll probably be the former, seeing as Panasonic is nowhere to be found in the list of manufacturers.

There's this however:
