Nintendo’s NX platform could potentially use Android based OS

Though we don’t have 100% confirmation on this, an article from Nikkei discussing NX, Nintendo’s next platform that was announced during their DeNA conference, states an insider says the OS for NX will be Android based. The reason behind this being because of third party support dwindling for the Wii U, they want to be able to have a more open and accessible platform for developers to create content that can be used on not only NX, but smartphones and tablets as well. This would allow a huge range of flexibility from third parties, and also implementing new features with cross play and performance we probably have yet to see in gaming. Whatever NX ends up being, it sounds like it could be pretty scary, for better or for worse.
