Pocket-lint reported that the collaborating between Niantic, the developer of "Pokemon Go", and Nintendo will be a "brand new concept". Many guesses started to pour in when Tsunekazu Ishihara dropped the big reveal.

One guess is that it will be a home/handled console hybrid. A home/handled console hybrid allows a gamer to play games on the go then get home and plug it into a dock. However, fans have no hints and any idea on how this product from "Pokemon" and Nintendo will actually look like.

The statement of Tsunekazu Ishihara regarding the appearance of the gaming console that will be released by "Pokemon" and Nintendo barely satisfies the fans. He just said that the next generation Nintendo device will be both a handheld one and a home console device crossover. Fair enough that this matched the guess of fans regarding its features; but fans cannot wait any longer to vividly picture the next big thing for gaming consoles.

Nintendo is rumoured to be also bringing "Zelda" and "Mario" aside from "Pokemon Go",. The rich and long history of the collaboration of the gaming giants "Pokemon" and Nintendo seem to make everything possible and more exciting for fans.

Fans can expect the release of Nintendo NX around September or October of 2017. As for the release date of games from "Pokemon" for "Nintendo," many are betting to wait till 2020 to enjoy the games on the Nintendo NX.
