The Nintendo UltraCube is a new console developed by Nintendo and Ghostrealm Studios. It is one of the most powerful consoles of it's time, and will bring a powerful start to the ninth-generation of gaming.


Even though the Wii U began to grow in late 2014, Nintendo still needed a new console. Thus, they turned to working alongside a third-party developer: Ghostrealm Studios. Ghostrealm Studios had developed several successful games for the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS, and they knew much about what gamers wanted. The console was known as Project Heaven during development, and was revealed at E3 2015 to tremendous success.


The Nintendo UltraCube is one of the most powerful consoles of it's time. With an Intel Xeon E5-2687W V3 processor and a Nvidia Tesla K80, it's power rivals that of high-end PCs, blowing away the competition. A 500GB hard drive, along with a 1TB hard drive for the Deluxe model, means you can store more stuff on your console. As for controllers, it possesses a new controller: The Nintendo UltraCube Controller.

The UltraCube's controller is designed much like the Wii U Pro Controller, but with the addition of a headphone jack, speakers, and other features, including an amiibo scanner.. In addition, an UltraCube GamePad will be sold, which is a newer version of the Wii U GamePad. However, Pro Controllers, Wii U GamePads, Wii Remotes, Balance Boards, and even GameCube controllers are all compatible.

However, one of the selling points of the UltraCube is that it can play many games on old platforms. Your old Wii U, Wii, and even Nintendo GameCube games can be played on the console. Even your Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS games can be played on the console thanks to the 3DS Adapter, bundled with the Deluxe Model and also sold separately, which plugs into the 3DS's cartridge slot. The adapter has a slot for a DS or 3DS game cartridge. allowing you to play your favourite handheld classics on a console, something that hasn't been done on a Nintendo console since the GameCube's Game Boy Player.

In addition, media features have been expanded. You can plug your cable box into the UltraCube via an HDMI In port on the back of the console. It can also play DVDs and Blu-Ray discs.

Another major feature, announced at Ghostrealmcon 2015, is the ability to stream PC and mobile games to the UltraCube, greatly increasing it's library of available games, thanks to a program known as UltraCube Streamer, which can be downloaded on PC from the UltraCube website or on the App Store or Google Play Store for mobile.. The console is also capable of recording gameplay footage and uploading it straight to YouTube.
