Nintendo NX Core “Idea” Is Why Nintendo Cannot Talk About It Yet


The lack of information about the next Nintendo console, currently known as Nintendo NX, is definitely unnerving, even more considering March is not all that far off. Judging from a recent statement from Shigeru Miyamoto, it seems like there's a very good reason for all this silence.

During the E3 2016, Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed to Associated Press that the company is working on a specific idea for the Nintendo NX, and that is the reason why they haven't talked about it much so far.

"In terms of NX, there's an idea that we're working on. 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."

This statement is particularly interesting in light of the more recent Nintendo NX rumors which state that the console is going to be delayed so that Nintendo could add VR functionality.

The sources pointed out that the Nintendo NX combines the video gaming experience with the mobile gaming experience. The device features a 5- to 7-inch display, controller and joystick for users to play as a mobile gaming product, but it is also able to connect to a TV for users to play as a video game system. Nintendo is now planning to add VR function to the device to satisfy the popular trend in the gaming market.

No matter what, Nintendo will be ready to talk about the Nintendo NX by the end of the year. It may even be shown during the EGX 2016 this September, judging from a recent survey, so it probably won't be long before we will finally learn more about this idea.

The Nintendo NX launches this March in all regions. We will keep you updated on Nintendo's next console as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
