A new teaser on the Nintendo NX has sparked speculation that Nintendo’s upcoming console may be compatible with devices outside of the Nintendo franchise.

If the new report from The Wall Street Journal is to be believed, then the Nintendo NX may actually work with the PC, smartphones and even the likes of the PS4. IGN reported that the information is not from an anonymous source as well.

It seems that the publication had received the update straight from the Head of Research at Macquarie Capital Securities based in Japan, from a certain David Gibson. Still, of course, since this has not yet been officially announced by Nintendo, it should still be taken with caution.

Apart from this, there seems to be a new survey that is floating around regarding the Nintendo NX. The new survey appears to be showing off a few of new console’s features. Some of these include bearing exclusive games from the franchises like “Super Mario,” “Donkey Kong” and Zelda, among others. The survey also mentions the ability to connect with other Nintendo players worldwide via the Nintendo Network.

There is a mention of graphics at 900p and 60 FPS, as well as support for 4K/60FPS video streaming. In the more complete rendition of the survey, there is mention of a subscription fee, which may be linked to either the backwards compatibility or renting or purchasing of old games also noted in the survey.

Interestingly, the Nintendo NX may actually follow a similar dynamic that the PS4 and PS Vita share. In the survey, there is a mention of gameplay flow between the Nintendo NX and the Nintendo NX handheld device. Whether or not this means a detachable device from the console or a separate device entirely remains to be confirmed.

It remains to be seen whether or not these features are truly coming to the Nintendo NX. There is a possibility that these are features that Nintendo is testing over for the public’s reception.

With the Nintendo NX’s release still a sizable distance away, Nintendo is not letting down its other gaming devices. The Nintendo NX has just received new details regarding upcoming RPGs for the console.

Two titles in particular were mentioned by the company, as reported via Businesswire. The first is the “Fire Emblem Fates Edition,” meant to come to the Nintendo 3DS XL on Feb. 19. There’s also the “Bravely Second: End Layer” Collector’s Edition, which is reportedly bundled with “Bravely Default” and coming with on April 15.

The first game, the Fates Edition, will have a US$199.99 (approx. AU$290) price tag. However, Nintendo did mention another version with a lower price tag, the “Fire Emblem Fates” for only US$39.99 (approx. AU$58) per version. The two versions include “Fire Emblem Birthright” and “Fire Emblem: Conquest.” There’s an additional story that can be downloaded for US$19.99 (approx. AU$29), titled “Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation.”
