Rumour – Nintendo’s next console could be called the Nintendo Duo

1 min read

Nintendo Duo

We’ve got a PS4 Pro out later this year and Microsoft has the Project Scorpio coming sometime during the silly season of next year. But honestly? I’m far more interested in what Nintendo has planned for the Nintendo NX. Say what you like about the Wii and Wii U consoles from the big N, but they did prove that you don’t need graphics to sell a game.

For months now, Nintendo has been teasing the Nintendo NX, a console which industry insiders will be a hybrid between home and mobile gaming, a device that can be plugged into a TV and taken on the road with you. Those rumours are looking somewhat juicy this morning, after the following tweet popped up ahead of the upcoming March 2017 release of that device:

We’re still looking into the veracity of this image to see if we’ve been conned by some clever photoshop, and we’ll update as soon as more details flood in. But the Nintendo Duo? I like that name. And it certainly does sound like Nintendo is going to make their next premium home console a lot more mobile. It’s possibly – likely even – that we’ve been suckered by a nice Photoshop, but the name…well, it fits.

    Nintendo Duo


    Looks like Valve is not the only one who does not count to 3 anymore. 😛

        Xbox Dos was just called ZX Spectrum. 😛

        When i read Xbox Dos, I’m imagining an Xbox sleeping.

          I see a text based operating system that requires you to change disks every time you want to run anything… even the operating system.

    It does seem like they might be referencing the name of the console there, but worth pointing out that the document pictured is a software partner briefing, so “Nintendo Duo” could be branding that they’ve given to that affiliation.

    Hmm, it’s not like Nintendo to share their product names with other companies. Google just launched Duo, their video calling app for Android, so although the name fits the rumoured console/handheld idea, I’m going to remain skeptical for now.

    The white design around the word “Duo” reminded me of the PS4 angular console design. The 3 stacked lines in the top right corner of the white also reminded me of the 3 layers of the PS4 Pro console.
