    Nintendo's NX using cartridges has been reported in the past. Now, it sounds even more likely as the Wall Street Journal has heard from "people familiar with the matter" that the company's next console will pass on discs.

    It's important to note that Nintendo's current handheld, the 3DS, also uses cartridges, meaning we could see something similar to that as opposed to the larger cartridges used by the Super Nintendo and N64.

    The main problem with cartridges is that they normally carry less data than discs--PS4 and Xbox One game discs can store up to 50 GB of data and often require further installs on the consoles' hard drives. It's currently unclear how much data an NX cartridge will hold, if real.

    Other reports have said the NX is a powerful handheld device with detachable controller modules--these attach to both sides of the screen. Additionally, the system can be docked and used on televisions.

    This news comes a day after Nintendo's latest Direct, which focused on the 3DS. Several games were announced including 3DS versions of Super Mario Maker and Yoshi's Woolly World, in addition to new Pikmin and Mario Sports titles.

    The NX is expected to release in March 2017. The next games in the Legend of Zelda series, Breath of the Wild, is set to launch simultaneously next year on both the NX and Wii U.
