Nintendo president Satoru Iwata and Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime have said a number of times that we won’t hear information about the Nintendo NX until 2016. Iwata says the reason behind this is simply because they do not want their competitors stealing their ideas. It is also safe to assume that they don’t want to talk about it just yet as they don’t want to cannibalise sales of the Wii U and possibly the Nintendo 3DS, dependant on what form the NX takes.
“We can’t talk about the NX. If we do, competitors may take our ideas and customers won’t be surprised.”
“This would not be beneficial for the company or its shareholders. The NX is new hardware, and will start from 0. However, the 3DS and Wii U have install bases. Immediately cutting off software for previous hardware upon the release of a new machine is inefficient.
“We will continue making 3DS and Wii software while preparing for the NX. We are prioritizing satisfying customers who purchased the Wii U.”
