It seems that we may see future Elder Scrolls, Fallout, and Doom titles on Nintendo’s upcoming NX system.
While Bethesda has not fully committed to releasing their games on Nintendo’s next system, vice president Pete Hines has expressed interest in the upcoming console.
“We talk to Nintendo all the time – we’re pretty well briefed in on what they are doing,” Hines told Finder in an interview. “It’s definitely something we will look at; and our philosophy is that we will put our games out on any format that supports the games as we envisage and make them. If the NX fits that from a technical standpoint, and fits the game that a developer in our stable is making, I don’t see why we would not put it out on the NX. But it’s too early to say, ‘we’ll definitely be putting games out or not.’ Like with mobile, we want to have the right fit for the right formats.”
It has been rumored that the NX will see the release of Zelda, Mario, and Pokemon titles within the first six months of the system’s lifespan. The Zelda title is most likely The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which was announced to be coming to Nintendo’s new system awhile back. The Wii U did not start with such a lineup, which is what Nintendo may be looking to avoid.
The NX is expected to release sometime next year.
