Nintendo chief executive Satoru Iwata has talked a bit more about its upcoming NX platform, which will assist Nintendo in delivering its first ever mobile games to the industry. In a translation to the company’s latest earnings report, Iwata reiterated that the NX would not be a replacement for the Wii U or 3DS.

“Though I cannot confirm when it will be launched or any other details of the system, since I have confirmed that it will be ‘a dedicated video game platform with a brand new concept,’ it should mean that we do not intend it to become a simple ‘replacement’ for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U.”

The situation with handhelds and consoles has become “rather different, especially between Japan and overseas” and the NX, billed as a “brand new concept” will look to be “accepted as many people around the world as possible”.

“Since we are always thinking about how to create a new platform that will be accepted by as many people around the world as possible, we would like to offer to them ‘a dedicated video game platform with a brand new concept’ by taking into consideration various factors, including the playing environments that differ by country. This is all that I can confirm today.”

Nintendo has revealed that the NX will not be showcased at this year’s E3 and more details on the platform will be revealed in 2016.

    Just like how the DS was not going to replace the Game Boy Advance, right? Yay for a new “Third Pillar!”

  • I have 1 idea for the console….
    the only reason i cant stand to play a wii U is cause i dont have TINY hands,
    the controller almost always fills hard to mess with. Its very annoying.
    i just want an old fashioned Controler like from the old NES days.
