But *when* in 2016?
September is gone, and we’re almost halfway through October as well. And yet, there’s no sign of an official announcement for Nintendo’s NX, the mysterious new system they have planned in the pipeline, which is due to release worldwide in March 2017. This has led to a lot of speculation that there may be delays involved- at least in the announcement of the system, if not in its release.
In a post on the Nintendo Developer forums spotted by reddit user GamoTron21 (via WCCFTech), Nintendo of Europe representative Ulysse Richert-Botté reiterated, yet again, that Nintendo plans on sharing more information about the system before this year’s end.
‘Nintendo will publicly share more information about NX within this year,’ he said.
I suppose this is probably reassuring to people who are losing hope at this point- the fact that this is a statement made to a development partner, rather than as a PR release, lends more credence to it. But who knows? It is entirely possible Nintendo executives are just toeing the company line until there’s an official announcement regarding a delay at the last moment.
