RUMOR - Nintendo developer portal updated in relation to NX


NWPlayer123 is the woman behind an absolute ton of leaks. We're talking about spot-on content that is 100% accurate. Now she's at it again with some info about the Nintendo developer portal.

According to her, the NX SDK has been updated to version 1.0. Why would Nintendo make a move on this now? If the info is true, it would seem to indicate that Nintendo will be releasing NX details to devs that don't have dev kits yet. This way they can approximate the NX's abilities/powers when developing a game on their PC.

She just dumped a bunch of Splatoon files. She's the one responsible for revealing that Octoling models were updated to be more similar to Inkling models, which was true. She was also the first one to notice the hidden Octarian logo that was added to the Splatoon matchmaking website before the big 2.0 update. So either it was cancelled or those things were completely coincidental. She also revealed a bunch of weapons and gear before they were released, but I guess we're not talking about that.

Also, I'm sure trans people love it when you out their status and put quotation marks around their pronouns, so definitely keep doing that. It makes you look like a very mature and kind-hearted individual.

Several elements seem to point in the direction of an announcement pretty soon. For some reason I wouldn't count on tomorrow though.

I agree. Rather than the Gamestop event, it's probably some kind of pre-Tokyo Game Show thing they have planned. Either way, I hope it happens really soon. Journalists are starting to lord the information over us.

First paragraph refers to the hacker as a woman, while the second paragraph refers to them as a man. I couldn't submit a "Fix this story!" note for some reason, so I figured I'd leave it as a comment.

Very interesting stuff. Sounds like the reveal will be coming soon if they're going to start distributing NX info more broadly among developers (thus increasing risk of leaks). This week is TGS, so if it's going to happen this week, I'd expect it to happen before/as the event starts. Otherwise, later.

Who is this and where can these other leaks be found? I've honestly never heard of "her".

She hacks games, dumps games (and leaks information from the dumps), and she has helped make Smash Wii U modding possible. She is well known for being the one that found data for playable octolings in Splatoon and leaked unannounced stages and weapons.

Wasn't "she" wrong about the playable Octalings, or was that like, cancelled?

It is definitely in the game. I assume that was unused content that they may have considered at one point but decided against it. Fire Emblem Path of Radiance for example has tons of data, showing that a certain spoiler character would have potentially been playable.

Nintendo would sometimes announce a direct two days before the announcement! If its prior TGS then we could hear on Tuesday/Wednesday

(Leave me alone, I can have hope!)

Kevin Pierra, Jose Otero, now NWplayer? Something is up. It's finally looking like light at the end of tunnel.

What did Jose Otero say? I didn't see anything from him or IGN lately.

He's on "vacation" in Japan

A whole group from IGN are in Japan for TGS. He talked about it extensively at the end of the most recent NVC and has been posting stuff on twitter since they landed. Don't get me wrong I'd love for it to be NX related, but I don't think that him being in Japan proves anything. They sent him there for the Scalebound stuff earlier this year too.

He's at TGS then after he's taking vacation time until late September. I'd say this points to if it ain't revealed by the end of TGS it'll be October at the earliest. As I don't see Otero taking a holiday when this happens!

Said he was "leaving" for two weeks. Specified it wasn't a vacation just yet, was coy on details, he and NVC crew all sounded giddy, told the rest of them to "compile up all the known info" on NX, whatever that means.

I've told you people it's happening this week. I told you for ages that we were getting a Direct at the beginning of September. I told you the day before the announcement that they'd announce the Direct tomorrow and that it would be on the Thursday. And that's exactly what happened. Trust me when I say, the wait is almost at an end.

Nintendo won't even be at TGS and they would somehow announce it at TGS? The exhibitor's list was revealed ages ago and they're not in it. They usually don't attend so it doesn't come as a surprise either.

No disrespect to NWPlayer, but these aren't really leaks - its all publicly accessible stuff. You just need to know where to look :P

She's not the one who called them leaks.

You're right. I guess I worded my comment in a confusing way.
