According to Let’s Play Video Games, details have emerged on the development kit for the Nintendo NX. These details contain information as the size of it, which is “slightly thicker than the Nintendo 3DS XL when folded, so 25 mm, with a width of around 281 mm and a height of 92 mm with the controllers attached.” When separated, each controller is the same size, both with a “width of 38 mm, making the console itself have a width of 205 mm.”
An SD card slot and TV connection port are found on top of the device while the bottom of the unit has a power button, headphone jack, and cartridge slot. The device also includes a “share button” and it works very similar to the share button that is found on the DualShock 4. It’s said that the share button would “apparently allow the upload of still images and video directly to Miiverse, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.”
Information also revealed on how the detachable controllers can connect and eject among each other, the back of each controller has button that, when pressed, ejects the controller from the device. There’s also word that the current development kits are region free, and that developers have not received any news on the final device being region locked.
Of course these are all rumors so take this information with a grain of salt. For more news on the Nintendo NX or any other gaming news, keep searching for Hidden Item!
