“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.

the only actually shocking development would be if they said they were'nt going to make games for NX.

My first response was "well, duh, but this is a little more illuminating than it first seems- that's the closest anyone official has come to confirming the core concept.

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.
