5 things Nintendo needs to bring to its new console

"As far as the NX goes, I’ve said it’s different and obviously a new experience."

The words of Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima, speaking to Time magazine about the company's fortunes. 

"I can assure you we’re not building the next version of Wii or Wii U. It’s something unique and different. It’s something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base."

So - the NX isn't going to be the Wii X. But what can Nintendo do to give itself a fighting chance of competing with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? How can they appeal to their loyal fans?

Here's what we want to see from the NX.
