A couple of months ago, Nintendo announced that the Nintendo NX would be released in 2017. This was a bit disappointing as many gamers had expected it to be released in 2016 (rumors suggest that VR integration could be the reason for the delay), but many had hoped that at least we could be seeing the console shown off and demoed at E3.
Unfortunately Nintendo did not even give us that. Instead Nintendo’s E3 was about their games, like the recently announced The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So the question is, when can we expect to learn more about the Nintendo NX ahead of its March 2017 release? The good news is that we won’t have to wait too long as Nintendo will be sharing the details come this fall.
In an interview with French website La Presse, CEO for Nintendo Canada, Pierre-Paul Trepanier was quoted as saying, “We decided to focus on Zelda (at E3). We’ll talk about the NX fall. At that time, it will be 100% NX.” This has not been confirmed by Nintendo of Japan or America, but given Trepanier’s status we guess this is pretty official.
Since no dates have been specified, we’re probably looking at a timeframe between September to November, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled all the same, so check back with us in the next few months for the details.
