I think it should be "Mitä nyt?". "Entä nyt?" is more like "What about now?"

"Mitä nyt?" was just accepted as well. But which is correct/better in Finnish depends on context: if someone interrupts you and you're annoyed, you would say "mitä nyt?". But if you're asking for directions for what to do/where to go next, "entä nyt?" nyt would be better. The latter does indeed match better to "and now/what about now?"

I think it's both debending dialect area.
