Nintendo NX Reveal Is “Imminent”, According To Industry Sources
The new Nintendo console, currently known as Nintendo NX, has yet to be revealed in full, but it looks like the wait for more details is going to be over soon. Last week, we have heard that the console will be revealed sometime this week, and today one more source stated that the reveal will be happening very soon.
French journalist William Audureau, who works for Le Monde, talked about the Nintendo NX reveal happening this week a few days ago, stating that Nintendo was discussing about an announcement coming very soon with one of his contacts. Today, Audureau has learned through another industry source that the Nintendo NX reveal is “imminent”, a statement that falls in line with recent rumors from other sources.
Cette semaine je ne sais pas, mais en off, Nintendo évoque en effet une annonce "très bientôt" auprès de ses contacts dans l'industrie.

With multiple sources talking about a reveal coming soon, it really looks like the wait is almost over. Still, we can never be too sure so take this with a grain of salt until Nintendo finally unveils its mysterious console.
As mentioned above, the investment banking firm Macquerie revealed last week that the Nintendo NX console will be revealed sometime this week. The firm also noted how the console’s $300 / $350 price may lead to disappointment for volume sales. The speculation from Macquerie regarding the Nintendo NX’s price falls in line with another rumor which has also surfaced online last week, stating that the console will be available for purchase as a regular pack costing $299 and as a bundle costing $399.
The Nintendo NX will launch during March 2017 in all regions. We will keep you updated on the mysterious Nintendo console as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
