The Ninth generation of video game consoles is the current video game generation of the Fantendoverse, including consoles made by Illusion Works, Toroko (in association with Sony & Nintendo), Zeta Labs, Simple Studios, Ninkancho, Lone Planet Productions and Transparent Interactive. It begun with the release of Illusion Works's Pacifico software in late 2015, making it a profitable success and dethroning its competitors (specifically Steam) on the process and with a home console released the following year. Two of the console manufacturers that were beat out by Illusion Works joined together to work, alongside Toroko, on a new video game console, entitled The V². In mid-early 2016, Ninkancho released its Display handheld with smartphone-like functionality and the ability to connect to a specialized console for home-style gameplay. Zeta Labs has made announcements of their own system, the Zeta Nebula, set to be released in 2017. Simple Studios made a departure from the tesseract consoles with the new R-Evolver. In November 2016, Lone Planet announced the Knuckleduster, which borrows some concepts from "indie consoles" of previous generations, while at the same time adapting them to a more modern gaming audience. In 2015 Transparent Interactive revealed the Glassbox, which will be released in 2017.
This generation has as a major factor the interconnectivity between devices, with both the Pacifico and the Zeta Nebula being both home systems as well online hubs that can be utilized alongside other devices. The sole exception, however, is The V², which intends to be a simple dedicated system with the sole intention of being a game console.
All of the systems have recieved critical praise from their users and critics. The Pacifico was critically acclaimed by video game publications such as IGN, while both the V² and the Zeta Nebula have recieved praise by their userbase, although for different reasons.
