Nintendo NX Still To Be Announced in 2016

After years of waiting, we might actually hear more details about the Nintendo NX before the end of 2016.

We’ve known that the NX would be Nintendo’s latest console for about a year and a half now, but have yet to see any new information since then.

With much disappointment, Nintendo barely mentioned the NX at E3 2015 or 2016. The only sight of the console was that Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would be the flagship title for the NX in March 2017. 

Hope is supposedly in sight.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, Nintendo still plans to release more details about the NX as early as this month. The report essentially states that in Nintendo’s upcoming second-quarter earning report on October 26 they would at least have to mention the NX when they meet with press.

October 21 just so happens to be the five year anniversary of the “Nintendo Direct”, a live-streamed conference where Nintendo usually makes their big announcements. This is another possibility for more NX details.

Large moves like this from gaming companies typically come with delays on top of delays, especially with Nintendo keeping the NX so hush-hush. So the original announcement of a March 2017 release could also be pushed back.

Nintendo being so tight-lipped brings out a hefty amount of speculation as to whether it will be a traditional, handheld or even VR console, and whether it will require classic cartridges instead of discs. 

Until any sort of announcement is made, we can keep up our speculations and hope the Nintendo NX will make our wildest dreams come true.
