Little is known about the NX, and Nintendo has mentioned the system several times this year without going into much detail about it. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime implied that NX is the company’s next home console and not a handheld. Nintendo said multiple times that we won’t hear a lot about NX until 2016.
“From a Nintendo perspective, we clearly have strength here in the Americas, we have strength in Europe and we have strength in Japan,” Fils-Aime said. “That isn’t necessarily true of some of our more direct competitors. We’ve also said publicly that we are already hard at work on our next home console and that’s another element we’ll be talking about much later.”
