No, Nintendo’s NX console will not be running Android

Company quashes rumor

Nintendo’s next console, codename NX, will not be an Ouya clone, contrary to yesterday’s rumors.

While you never know with Nintendo, which recently agreed to let its properties enter the mobile gaming space with a DeNA partnership, this one was pretty likely wrong from the start. Maybe not as risible as that Silent Hills rumor, but still.

“There is no truth to the report saying that we are planning to adopt Android for NX,” a Nintendo spokesman told The Wall Street Journal.

No Nintendroid 69 after all.
