Rumors of Nintendo working on their next-gen system have recently surfaced, and along with them comes a report of the supposed specifications for both the next Nintendo handheld and home console. I’ll go out on record right now and state that it’s not a rumor that Nintendo is working on their next products – all companies start planning their next hardware 1-2 years after launching a new system. So there’s no doubt that Nintendo’s next systems are definitely in the works as we speak.

But one thing we don’t know for sure, is the details, plans, and specifications of these next-generation systems. Before I go any further though, let me make a disclaimer: Take all of this with a huge grain of salt. I’m not going to lie and make it out to seem like I have inside industry sources, because I don’t. The information you’re about to see comes from an anonymous origin, and an acquaintance of mine brought this to my attention – I’m just being honest with you. Yep, it’s one of those situations.

That being said though, the rumored specifications don’t sound too far-fetched at all. This is what the insider had to say:

“Before I go into the detail on the Softwear and OS features I overheard, I will like to do a upgraded recap on the specs of both machines. The codename is now “FUSION” and many the R&D want to keep that name for the main console release. The Handheld unit is called the “FUSION DS” while the home unit is called “FUSION TERMINAL.”

“Nintendo has already begin making demo software for the targeted prototype hardware in efforts to curb the Wii U mistake in the software pipeline (they started creating software after prototyping and were unable to give major software push the first two years as a result). Nintendo plans to make most of the software prototypes into games and applications around the launch of the unit.”

For those of you who may not be tech savvy, keep reading on for my [unprofessional] analysis of this information and determin the legitimacy of these claims.

Let’s start with the handheld, the “Fusion DS”. The ARMv8-A Cortex-A53 CPU rumored to be used in the next Nintendo handheld fits perfectly with Nintendo’s philosophy with affordable-but-competent processors. It is also very energy efficient to boot, fitting right in with the company’s goal of low power-drawing  hardware. All of that sounds pretty feasible, but then we get to the RAM. Sony’s Playstation Vita has a total of 640MB’s of RAM, with 128 of that being dedicated video RAM. One would be hard-pressed to believe that Nintendo would be ambitious enough to include almost 5x the amount of RAM in their next handheld. Not to mention, that with portable devices, you don’t need as much RAM as the games tend to be on much smaller scales than console games. One could argue that maybe the “Fusion DS” will have a lot of multi-tasking capabilities or will contain certain unique features that are constantly running in the back ground, but then again, Nintendo isn’t necessarily known for things like that, excluding Wii Connect 24.

images

The 3DS’s screen weren’t terrible, per se, but they could’ve been much better.

It makes sense that Nintendo would go with a sub-HD display still, seeing as how the company always puts a focus on affordable hardware.

What raises some doubts for me though, is the 3G chip for GPS location and the mini USB port. Surely with all that has happen last year with 3DS’s SwapNote, Nintendo wouldn’t include GPS technology that could potentially be used to locate minors. As for the USB port, a direct USB connection can make pirating all the more easier. Hacks and exploit programs can be run on the system via USB, just like with the PSP. Nintendo has made it clear that they will do everything in their power to discourage hackers from running homebrew on their handheld devices.

ware for both themselves and the consumers. Two circle pads this time around is an absolute must and Nintendo would be foolish not to include two pads/sticks this time around. Surely they wouldn’t wish for a repeat of the clunky Circle Pad Pro. An NFC reader seems like a no-brainer considering the Wii U contains that technology, as well as a 3DS cart slot due to the companies strong value and belief put into including backwards compatibility. As for the BluTooth interaction with other mobile devices, normally I wouldn’t believe it, but considering Iwata’s latest statements on how Nintendo will analyze the smart phone and tablet market, it wouldn’t surprise me if they did incorporate them somehow.

So it’s hard to make a clear verdict on rather or not the “Fusion DS”‘s specifications make sense. While it’s specs (for the most part) sound reasonable, there’s an equal amount of included factors that simply sound uncharacteristic of Nintendo to do. I would say that all this is completely up in the air.

Now to discuss the home console, the “FUSION TERMINAL”.

wii-u-no-price-cut

The way the “Fusion Terminal” is supposedly built is similar to how the Wii U was designed.

A highly-customized GPGPU like the Wii U’s offering a 4.60 TFLOP performance with almost 4x the shaders over the PS4’s 1.8 TFLOPS  GPU and Xbox One’s 1.2 TFLOPS sounds right around the ballpark that Nintendo would aim for. Those numbers would mean a very respectable and decent increase over the current-gen consoles while keeping things at a moderate price-point. An 8-core POWER 8 CPU wouldn’t be a surprise at all considering that the company has used the POWER series in the past. The PowerPC 750-based co-processor makes too much sense, as that would allow perfect backwards compatibility with Wii U and probably even Wii games, seeing as how both system have used that PowerPC architecture. So far, these processors are sounding 100% realistic and shouldn’t be written off by any means.

Next is the RAM – a highly misunderstood component of consoles that many gamers use as a sole measurement of a system’s capabilities. By the time the next-generation of system come around, DDR4 RAM will be the norm. This will be a dense, more efficient breed of RAM than GDDR5 – don’t let the bigger number fool you. Considering the Wii U uses 1GB of RAM for it’s games, a 4x increase of dramatically more efficient memory seems like a natural evolution for Nintendo. Again, it’s a good amount but not enough to make a system extremely expensive (if my estimates of how expensive DDR4 will be by then are accurate). Four gigabytes of that kind of RAM would be plenty for some truly massive and impressive next-generation games, while the 2GB’s of DDR3 will most likely be set aside for multi-tasking and the operating system.

Moving on to the ports on the system, only two USB ports sound odd, but then again, that’s the kind of odd decision that I could see Nintendo actually make. Now, the coaxial cable and cable card slot raises a red flag for me. Sure Nintendo has shown interest in TV capabilities and the like with Nintendo TVii, but they’re no Microsoft. The Wii U doesn’t even include a LAN port, or an optical port for that matter. It’s not hard to doubt that they would actually enable features such as recording TV on your system and having playback capabilities.

GamePad

Expect “Fusion” games to be off-TV play compatible.

Stream nodes to allow Wii U GamePad compatibility is a given. As we’ve seen in the past, Nintendo has a knack for allowing you to use old controllers on your new system.

The most interesting bits out of all of this info though, is the multiple versions of hardware that this insider is claiming will happen. A SKU that has 3DS playback? That may sound too cool to be true, but then again, Nintendo has done exactly this kind of thing before with the GameCube and GBA. One thing that leaves me with doubt though is the fact that Nintendo tried 2 versions of hardware before (with the Wii U of course), and one of the bundles simply wasn’t selling at all and had to phased out. At the same time though, the Basic Bundle simply wasn’t a good alternative period, so Nintendo could make sure that all versions of their hardware will be appealing this time around.

Lastly, we have the storage rumor. This is probably the most believable part out of the entire list for both the next handheld and home console. Nothing sounds more like Nintendo than flash storage, and a low amount of it. They did it with the Wii, and they did it with the Wii U.  Nintendo simply loves flash storage due to their distaste for moving parts in their consoles that could potentially fail (like HDD’s), so it makes complete sense that they would continue using that kind of storage. A disc-based model with 60GB’s and a disc-less model with 300GB’s to compensate for downloads?  I could definitely see that happening.

While Nintendo has been adamant that physical games are going nowhere, they have at the same time embraced digital purchases. With many of their games such as Luigi U and Pikmin 3, Nintendo has offered special deals or incentives to buy them digitally. Not to mention the whole Digital Deluxe promotion they’ve done for Deluxe bundle owners. The company will no doubt want to continue to trend of including physical but pushing digital games because of course, buying game digitally makes the company more money. This all sounds like a natural evolution for Nintendo to take with the next-generation of hardware.

Well folks, that’s all I got. Again, take this all with the biggest grain of salt you can possibly find, but I finally figured that this information was too interesting to simply keep to myself. What do you readers think? Do you like what you see in these specs, do they underwhelm you, or do you think they’re too good to be true? Sound off down below and give us your thoughts!

    Really… who in their right mind is going to believe that Nintendo is getting set to release another system this soon, it would be much worse than running with the Wii U, the Wii U can turn around, releasing another system will just cause people to lose faith.

    • sage says:

      they’re not releasing it now, this is an unofficial reveal. it would come out in years.
      and let’s be honest, the Wii U is a cock up and needs a revised model. this new one still plays Wii U games so think of it as a slim or enhanced version of the Wii U.

    • jholden3249 says:

      This is for the next, upcoming 9th generation, not a replacement to cut the Wii U short. ALL console manufacturers start development of their next gen hardware shortly after the new generation begins. Wii U has been out over a year. You better believe Nintendo’s already getting their next-gen console in the bullpen…

  2. Bimo says:

    I doubt it , Nintendo is too greedy and they love profit too much and besides Mario next-gen wont really help Nintendo , what Nintendo needs is NEW IP’s.

  3. David Todd says:

    Hahaha, the idea of Nintendo putting out a 4.6Tf console within the next few years is laughable. With Nintendo rumoured to have decreased gpu power to hit power efficiency and thermal contraints in the wiiU there is no way they would drop the equivalent of a Titan or R9 290 in the wiiU successor. They would be making an incredible loss on each unit sold which is against Nintendo’s philosophy. I could see these kind of specs in a Nintendo console in about 5 – 6 years time but certainly not before then.

    • Be Loved says:

      The N64 says hello my friend. Do not under estimate a 130 year old company.

    • jholden3249 says:

      Right. This is for next gen, which will start in about 5 years for Nintendo, maybe 4 depending on how the Wii U does over the next several years. Specs sound impressive, of course, they always do 5 years before release.

  4. Leon Kennedy says:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Slpy9nNp9SM

    This is clearly meant for the market in 4 or 5 years by Nintendo/

    Fake Fake Fake

  6. nathan drake says:

    This is pure and utter BS.

    Please explain how Nintendo is going to appease the 4 million or so Wii U buyers who now see their console become obsolete in less than 2 years, should this prove to be true.

    What you will see, is Nintendo finally doing the inevitable, and that is dropping out of the hardware race. In total disgrace, I might add.

    Iwata is living in the past, and he has kept Nintendo there as well, trying to relive the good old NES/SNES days. A time when social media and the internet, as well as online connected gaming did not exist.

    Nintendo just does not “get it” anymore. Any and all profit from the Wii days is long gone, except in the minds of Ninty fanboys. And with Iwata refusing to step down, this mindset will only continue.

    “Glory Days”, by Bruce Springsteen pretty much sums up Nintendo at this point. And new hardware that, according to your specs in the article, is still sub-par is not going to help them.

    • MechaMew2 says:

      You SERIOUSLY don’t know what you’re talking about, so stop trolling.

      • I think he does know something…look in the past. I mean at SEGA. They launched the 32X then immediately after the Saturn and a little after that they launched the Dreamcast…and where are they now?

    • DAMN says:

      @nathan drake
      What Social Media?
      Facebook and Twitter ain’t Social Media my friend
      They’re about as Anti-Social as you can get

      They are Attention Whoring Media…not Social Media

    • jholden3249 says:

      Dude, this is not a replacement for Wii U. ALL console manufacturers start developing their next-gen hardware shortly after releasing their latest console. Wii U’s been out a year. What, you thought Nintendo was gonna wait until 6 months before the 9th gen to start prototyping?

      The time is NOW. They gotta start now to be ready, with a finalized product, on store shelves, with games, in just 5 years. Consider 2 more years to finalize hardware design, and then they’ll start developing games to be ready by launch.

    • charles dexter ward says:

      Nintendo not making profit right now doesn’t mean they don’t have money, they have, they have been in red numbers for about 2 years, that does hurt their economy, but doesn’t take them out of bussiness, also nintendo won’t leave the hardware race, they dominate mobile gaming and this is their first table top console who has failed (the cube had green numbers despite being the third of that generation and the wii was the winner on a war where we had a console with the most advance processor ever cell ofc), what will kill them? releasing new hardware (even if its not this no sense hardware which doesn’t fit together at all) and killing early the wii u, that would diseminate their fanbase.

    • hi says:

      did you not read the article?

  7. WiiUExposed says:

    Shoke, you should make a vid on this. Get this info to your YT audience

  8. ganewo says:

    thx and I do not think that Nintendo offers this console

  9. Benjamin says:

    Inform us and update this when you find out more. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Dirk says:

    Even if they are not a direct competitor to Sony or Microsoft by concentrating on casual and kids games they need to show they are a credible player in the XB1/PS4 era. I don’t think these specs do that. The Wii-U definitely didn’t do that and with so much buzz about those systems it is probably 1 of the main reasons the Wii-U is dying a slow death.

    • Zach says:

      How do these specs not compete with XB1/PS4? They’re far superior. Granted, I doubt this is true at all, but I think your fanboyism is showing.

    • jholden3249 says:

      Yeah, 3DS was supposedly gonna die a slow death too, now it’s outselling PS4, X1 and Vita combined. The Wii U will be fine, given due time. They don’t have a thousand 3rd party games flooding the system like other consoles. So it takes a while for the library to fill out. They don’t need to show squat in the PS4/X1 arena. Nobody wants a Nintendo like them. People love Nintendo specifically BECAUSE they offer something different. Their games are all the credibility they need.

      I know you think that the only way a console can survive is be just like Sony and MS, but it doesn’t. People buy whatever provides them with fun. And Nintendo consoles and games are fun. People have always bought them, and people always will buy them. Chill out on all the Wii U analysis. So they had a rough year… it happens to the best of em.

  11. Anon says:

    Wow. Ridiculous. I can tell you right now it’s bogus. Nintendo would NEVER include a fingerprint scanner. Nintendo understands privacy and the atmosphere that surrounds it.

  12. It must be true, because it is an outlet for nintendo!
    Nintendo has announced that they have a surprise for us, so maybe it!!

  13. el pininini (misterx apprentice) says:

    wat….. nintendi uses cheap components what makes yo think they will have a 4.3 tflop gpu LOL

  14. Luke Bailey says:

    Shocking to get this kind of detailed info so soon into the Wii U’s lifespan but if this is true then Nintendos Next gen system is going to be pretty damn awesome

    shame I’ll have to wait several years to get my hands on it though
    but the Wii U will be more than enough to entertain me until then

  15. teufel says:

    Pretty much what I predicted on certain boards when Nintendo made the move of fusing their portable and console sections into one, that Nintendo would make the move to bring the two together.

    It should come to no surprise that with this setup, the gamepad will likely be an option for this system to play games directly on it while in the home, and the other unit will be used for portable games/bringing true console gaming into the portable market which is something Sony has promised and has yet to deliver with the Vita.

    This console-portable hybrid likely will be released 2016 if they pull a Gamecube or 2017 if they just want to jump the gun on their standard 6 year cycle.

    The true beauty of this move, again something I predicted on other boards, is that Nintendo will be able to take advantage of newer tech while MSony will be stuck with their system for 8-10 years which results in a possibly superior product at a competitive price with MSony while also providing services that MSony will only be able to shoehorn in if it turns out to be something they want to copy ie Smartglass/Vita 2nd screen play.

    Bottom line, the 3DS has kept Nintendo on the lips of many gamers while the Wii U is limping along bringing some strong games to the market but falling short on 3rd party support; however this system will get the benefit of both sides of their brilliant dev teams while also being fully capable of running 3rd party games with ease assuming they take the “chance” with Nintendo.

  16. Be Loved says:

    This is going to make their competition itchy. With China lifting their ban on gaming consoles, Nintendo can easily profit by making China the release nation, 1.5 billion people is an easy market.

  17. Nintendood says:

    Lol

  18. Dark Link says:

    GOOD…the gaming news outlets are picking up on this….goood. Let nintendo know we want a powerful system!

    REDGAMINGTECH DID AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF THE RUMOR! I RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO READ IT.

  20. squidleyjones says:

    Good read Jahmai. I have to agree with most of your Nintendo analysis. Looks like Nintendo is going for a GameCube 2.0. Sounds good to me.

  21. Donkey says:

    What do I see in those specs…..bullsh**

  22. This isn’t real. You’re telling me two 5.11 inch screens, two Vitas taped together will be Nintendo’s handheld? Also, holographic discs are still a ways off if they ever become useful. Plus, while its rumored that Nintendo chose a new platform’s SoC in early 2013, they didn’t choose both a handheld and console successor. Nintendo starts development of a new console but doesn’t pick specs or hardware parts until 1-2 years into development. These console specs are literally fake or else that means Nintendo was developing this while launching the Wii U in 2011/2012. Yes, they discuss things and do some planning but they don’t sign friggin’ contracts with suppliers this early. I doubt Nintendo ships any Wii U successor before fall 2016.

  23. “CPU: ARMv8-A Cortex-A53 GPU: Custom Adreno 420-based AMD GPU”
    First of all, Cortex-A53? That is not even possible at the moment, the most any device has at the moment is a little over an A15 (the Nvidia K1). Second, the fact it is saying it is a ARMv8 is also unbelievable, as even with Tegra 4 and K1, it’s still technically a ARMv7. Last of all, the fact they say “Adreno 420” then proceed to say “AMD GPU” is absolutely unintelligent and un-knowledgeable. AMD doesn’t make Adreno, Qualcomm does, second, higher end Adreno GPU’s are at about 330 in their numbering scheme, and were 250 a few years ago. Then they go on to explain it has both DDR4 and DDR3 on the same die. Whomever wrote the original leak has no idea what they are talking about. Just saying

  24. Social gaming says:

    Bwahahaha Nintendo will probably be forced to sit back and wait out the social gaming era till it’s over. Dream on Nintentards. Bwahahaha

  25. Big Bobby says:

    It also does toast and has a built in alarm clock. There’s also an add-on to play VHS tapes.

  26. BITW11 says:

    They are not giving up with the Wii U. As they say here companies start planning their next console even before the current console was released. As for the Fusion it remains to be seen if Nintendo can win back the Hardcore gamers which surely have to be their main objective now with the failure of the Wii U attributed to it.

  27. lolwut says:

    hahahah… delusional spec

  28. Balls Johnson says:

    LOL what a bunch of obvious bullshit

  29. Carlos Velez says:

    4 gamepads?!?!!? each gamepad has a 480p screen, 480×4=1920… the console would be streaming 1920p wirelessly O_O almost 4k just for the 4 controllers! on top of that, games are match the ps4?!!?!? its gonna need better graphics lol also maybe unified memory of at least 16gb or more of ddr4 with the highest frecuency as possible (1600mhz is a joke). The VHD player and usb3 is amazing! but they need a replacable sata3 hard drive!!

  30. This concept better be held for until at least around 2017 or later! I don’t want Nintendo to release this too soon!

  31. either this is a troll or this is their next system that will come out in several more years and in that time the specs will be not so impressive but due to just the look of it I would say this is fan art and wishful thinking

  32. I seriously can’t believe there are this many stupid people on the internet. Where in the fuck in the article does it say that they’re gonna release it soon???? This is their NEXT gen console do any of you fucking know what that means??? That means AFTER the WiiU (aka a couple more years) they will release this! Such idiots.

  33. Sprinkles says:

    Has anyone noticed that the Codenames in these system specs are all things from the original Donkey Kong? JUMPMAN, LADY, HAMMER, BARREL, and KONG.

  34. TrueWiiMaster says:

    I suppose this could be true, but even if it’s true now, by the time Nintendo would actually release the system(s) they’re working on right now (probably 3-4 years from now), it could change completely. In other words, even if this information is 100% accurate at the moment, it’s very doubtful it would actually describe the final product.

    That said, I doubt Nintendo would add 3G to their handheld, and a thumbprint security scanner just seems weird. The handheld description also seems to lack a card slot (aside from the SD and 3DS slots), which would be very un-Nintendo, as well as a front facing camera.

  35. Nintendo4Life says:

    Why does the date on the article say Jan 1st when this was just posted yesterday? Or am I reading that wrong…?

    Man…fuck those pieces of crap Nintendonews for stealing this

  37. Jumpman says:

    I’m done with the Nintendo, i bought the Wii U few weeks ago and this is what they are planning to do? So if the console hasn’t sold that well and they are planning to kill it, so i wasted $300 on a crap that will die within few months.

    This specs doesn’t make sense at all, also adreno is qualcomm’s not AMD’s, a retarded kid wrote this “specs”

    whatever it is, PS5 will blow it out of water

    • JoKeR says:

      wrong, as there will be no such Thing called “PS5”. Only gaikai Comes (2015), and 2018-2020, sony will start with ist next act: Streaming games. There is no more console then!

    Nintendo FUSION? Yeah I hear it is coming out around the same time as DREAMCAST 2 !
    Yes a little 3D modeling skill combined with fanboy dreams are a dangerous thing lol.

    Sweetness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. nitemary says:

    Seriously, that’s gotta be one of the dumbest things I’ve ever read, if not *the* dumbest. It’s either a hoax or Nintendo is seppuku-ing at its finest.

    I mean. I’m not the one doing market research for them, but to start with, why-oh-why would they release two consoles when one of them essentially kills the other one? I mean, if you have one console that reads both Wii U and 3DS games, why the smokes would you buy one that just read 3DS games?

    And while we’re on the “reasons why the Fusion DS is completely unnecessary” topic, the 3DS sales might not be what they expected, but the handheld *is* winning the competition against PS Vita. Making it obsolete by releasing one that’s more like their looser (on its literal meaning) competitor just doesn’t add in. They already have the best one in the market, even if it’s not as good as it could be.

    That’d be almost the same as those people who get killed doing a stunt trying to break their own record. I mean, if they had stayed at home, they would be alive and still hold the record anyway, so why spend the time and the money to do something that might work out for the worse?

    (And don’t give me the “smartphone” faeces. The kind of people that give up on a handheld over a smartphone won’t be the ones interested on these specs.)

    Nintendo might not be doing as well as they once did, but that doesn’t make it any smarter to throw away the sales they already did in this generation and pissing off their loyal costumers – specially because it’s fan loyalty that essentially keep them on their feet.

    I think *if* this whole thing is true (and, paraphrasing lieutenant Aldo Raine, “that’s a big ‘if’!”), either those consoles won’t see the shelves until next generation (in five-ten years) – and, I might add, I think those specs *might* become a little obsolete till then – or they’ll just be optional upgrades for this generation (like DSi was for the DS Lite) not necessarily knocking Wii U or 3DS out from the market. In other words, a huge money spent on specs that won’t be used.

  44. Even more claim to proof Is that Nintendo is on the board for HVD development and has been for a while, so the HVD drive does make sense…

    scroll down to development teams section

  45. aGuest says:

    Looks a lot like Nintendo is just testing the waters as to what kind of power they want in their next system. Seems like pure R&D at the moment and will probably change a million times before any official announcement. With specs falling in line around an R9 280x to 290, it looks like Nintendo is testing this generation of high end hardware as it won’t be high end in a few years. Makes sense and of course it’ll be at least 2x, if not 3x stronger than the PS4 and Xbox One. Nintendo was never one to push the strongest hardware and I don’t expect that to change. It’s all about innovation and design. They hit and miss and the Wii U was a miss.

    • D2K says:

      That is incorrect. The SNES was nearly as powerful as the NEO GEO. The only advantage the NEO GEO had over the SNES was the CPU power. The N64 ripped the PS1 to shreds in power and was THE most powerful console that gen. The Gamecube was the second most powerful console of the 6th gen just coming in a shade less powerful than the XBOX.

  46. i think it would be really cool to make another console but next gen we don’t have a nex gen console if u agree put agree please

    First off, the picture is awesome! I think that this would be released in 2020 as a pattern of other releases. Form example, the Wii was released in 2006 and the Wii U was released in 2012, these being six years apart (not counting handhelds) I would think that 2020 would be reasonable.

    A very well written article indeed. Although, i hope the author would not mind taking into account a piece of advice that i would like to share. I think an article is supposed to be an insight of the author representing views or opinions along with the sharing of information. The reason is clear. A reader always feels the curiosity regarding what the author thinks about the topic that is being covered.
