Nintendo’s newest console gaming system, code-named the NX, has been public knowledge for quite a while now. Regardless, information on it has been very scarce, with Nintendo keeping all the good secrets to themselves. They even opted out of presenting it at the biggest gaming convention that just happened a couple of weeks back — E3. This has many fans either angry, confused, or a combination of both because of this decision. However, Shigeru Miyamoto finally tells us the reason why Nintendo has been so secretive of the company’s newest gaming console, although quite vaguely.
During an interview, Miyamoto stated that “In terms of NX, there’s an idea that we’re working on,” he said. “That’s why we can’t share anything at this point, and I don’t want to comment on the other companies. If it was just a matter of following advancements in technology, things would be coming out a lot quicker.”
Certainly, this quote was vague enough to leave you with more questions than answers, like this “idea” Nintendo is working with. What we can guess, however, is that, due to that last sentence, we can expect the NX to have some sort of original concept to it. It won’t just be a more powerful Wii U, but something completely different that differentiates it from other gaming consoles.
The NX will be coming out in March 2017, so hopefully we’ll finally see a reveal of the system by the end of this year.
