The lack of any official detail regarding the Nintendo NX, the company’s mysterious next console, is definitely becoming unnerving as we get closer to the confirmed March 2017 release date. Rumors in the past weeks stated that a reveal will be coming soon, and it seems like they were somewhat right.

In a post on the Nintendo Developer forums spotted by reddit user GamoTron21, Nintendo of Europe representative Ulysse Richert-Botté reiterated that Nintendo will publicly share more information about the NX within the year. He also added that development tools will be made available to smaller developers at a later time.
