Nintendo Shoots Down Rumors of NX Running Android

It didn’t take Nintendo long to shoot down rumors of their next platform, NX, using android as it’s operating system. It was a weird rumor to begin with and Nintendo, somewhat uncharacteristically distanced themselves from the rumor as quickly as possible. A Nintendo spokesperson said this to the Wall Street Journal:

“There is no truth to the report saying that we are planning to adopt Android for NX.”

While it was pretty obvious that this was most likely going to be the case, it is hard to not be intrigued by the thought of a Nintendo platform running Android. Nintendo’s platforms have all really suffered from lacking industry standard features but running Android would potentially change all of that. The move would not be something Nintendo would do, however, as Nintendo seems more inclined to do things there way. It was a fun rumor but unfortunately it will most likely never happen.
