    Nintendo's next machine, the Nintendo NX, is almost here, if we are being led to believe correctly- but for a system that's almost here, we haven't seen hide nor tail of it. We don't know what the NX is , much less what its games are going to be. What we do know is that third parties, especially Japanese third parties, seem especially bullish on it. We've already heard Level 5 and Square Enix express excitement for the machine before- and now, it seems like Bandai Namco are prepared to go all in on the NX too.
