A lot of us have been expecting Nintendo to announce the NX this Fall- but so far, we’ve gone through all of September and half of October, and there’s been no sign nor peep that an NX announcement is incoming. This has led many to conclude that the NX may be delayed- the announcement, at least, if not the console itself.

However, financial advisory firm Macquarie has released its new report on Nintendo, wherein they have stated that they apparently expect Nintendo to announce the NX next week. This may not make much sense at first- but the possibility that Nintendo has an event planned, with invites sent out but embargoed, isn’t out of the realms of probability at all.

That said, Macquarie isn’t too bullish on Nintendo, saying that the NX looks set to underperform, owing to a high expected price- $300 to $350. Nintendo’s mobile ventures, too, will apparently not amount to much according to Macquarie, with Super Mario Run especially locking itself out of 60% of the global market, by only being on iOS devices at first, and not launching in China.

I don’t know how much of their takeaways I want to believe in, but at this point, I am desperately hoping they will be right about the NX’s reveal date.
