LinkedIn profile for software engineer gives some insight into NX development

Steven Chith
Software Engineer

I'm currently working on Nintendo's next console, code named "NX"​. It's so secretive that sometimes even I don't know what I'm working on. Suffice to say, I'm primarily doing embedded system development.

Part of a 6-dev team coding multimedia drivers.

Well, that date is certainly very interesting. That's the first time we've seen anything that gives us an actual timestamp on work for the NX. Seems like Steven has been working on aspects of the NX since all the way back in Feb. of 2015! Thanks to Dakhil for the heads up!

Nothing too exciting. Probably drivers for network or video etc. *MAYBE* some more core OS stuff (but I doubt thats being done in the US or if it is, by contractors.)

I think it's interesting to hear how incredibly strict Nintendo is when it comes to the NDA for the Nintendo NX, considering what Steven Chith said about the Nintendo NX.

Considering I had to sign an NDA the size of a small house when I worked at NOE's localization centre and the fact they were secretive about pretty much everything not related to any current project, I am not surprised.

For example, we only got the news about the DS lite after it was officially announced by NCL... We did get 2 test units a couple of days later but yeah they are really secretive, even when you work there and signed NDAs.

Considering that some NCL devs, including the 3D Mario team, didn't even know about the Wii U until its reveal, I'm not surprised by this.
