Nintendo’s new hardcore rumors got another notch through into the mix, with an anonymous source stating that one of the companies to have received the reported early-release developer kits is The Pokemon Company, who are currently engaged with the product under Nintendo’s supervision. An inside source for the company recently let it slip to CVG that “It’s genuinely the best thing I think I’ve ever worked with. I can tell you that it’s got a ’tilt’ function that’s not dissimilar to iPhone, but does a lot more. We know that The Pokemon Company are getting special attention with it.”
Considering these are the kinds of things that gamers have been clamoring for since the 2007 release of Apple’s handheld app-machine, Nintendo could be on track to score again in the handheld market they are already fiercely dominating. Such a reveal would greatly tip this year’s E3 press in the Japanese company’s favor, so expect the reveal to hold the Metroid: Other M spot in their presentation this coming June.
