I’m not really sure why people expected it when Nintendo was clear that 2016 would be the earliest they would talk about NX. Nintendo had to come out this week at their investor meeting and clarify that they will not be talking about NX at E3 this year. They will be focusing specifically on Wii U and 3DS software at the expo. He did talk a little about what NX is.
“Presently, we cannot talk about the time period when it [the NX] will go on sale or what it’s like. Because we are calling it a ‘new concept,’ we are not thinking of this as a ‘simple replacement’ for the 3DS or the Wii U.”
It’s interesting that he mentions that it’s not a simple replacement for the 3DS or the Wii U. What exactly does that mean and why does he mention both platforms specifically? That sounds like it could hint towards whatever NX is being an integrated device for home and mobile. Of course anything about NX right now would be complete speculation.
Nintendo will be talking about NX. Not before next year, but they will be talking about it.
