Even NX game announcements have outpaced the NX itself at this point.
Nintendo’s stubborn refusal to actually reveal the NX, even with just months left to its purported worldwide launch in March 2017, which is something that they have committed to multiple times, continues to rankle. Even as more and more leaks and rumors reveal pretty much everything about the device, Nintendo’s response is to stay shut about their upcoming system, and simply pretend as though it does not exist.
At this point, even NX game announcements have begun to outpace Nintendo’s handling of the NX reveal- games like Dragon Quest 10, Dragon Quest 11, Sonic 2017, and Just Dance 2017 are among some of the games that have been officially confirmed for the platform- and now there’s another name to add to the list. Independent Austrian game developer, Bplus, have announced Tank it!, a new war simulation game designed to show the brutality and futility of war- and this game has been announced for Steam (with a release for later this year), and for Nintendo NX (with a release planned for next year).
So, when NX games are being announced before the system itself has had any official reveal, I think it is a sign that Nintendo need to just get on with the system’s full reveal already. The secrecy and mystery around it was helping generate hype before- but at this point, it is more damaging to Nintendo than anything else, especially since with rumors, leaks, and speculation, Nintendo no longer get to control the messaging, and have potentially damaging information out there in the wild well before they’ve had a chance to present it.
