Nintendo Continuing Their “Development And Planning Efforts For NX In Preparation For Launch”

Tatsumi Kimishima, the president of Nintendo, has assured investors that they are hard at work continuing their “development and planning efforts for NX in preparation for launch.” Kimishima obviously wouldn’t give much away, but we do know that the platform will be announced sometime this year with all signs pointing towards E3 in June.

“The previous and current fiscal years have been a period of preparation to launch a number of new endeavors, such as NX development, development for smart devices and business using our character IP, in addition to driving our Wii U and Nintendo 3DS businesses.”

“At the same time, it has been our priority to take a close look at areas of our existing business where the revenue and expenses had become unbalanced, and to make sure that we corrected this balance. As I have said before, we will be launching many of our new business activities as we move from this fiscal year into the next.”

“When you start any new business, it is important to make the public aware of what you will be doing. In the next fiscal year, we will have to make preparations and investments to achieve these goals, and that comes with certain costs.”

“The question was to pick one area with which we will be able to achieve Nintendo-like profits, but I would like to suggest two areas. One area is our NX business, and another is our business for smart devices. I believe that keeping these two endeavors on track will be key to achieving Nintendo-like profits. I don’t have any further details to share about the next fiscal year at this time, but we will explain about our plan and when we will aim to achieve Nintendo-like profits at a future date.”

  1. They will be launching many of their new businesses in the next fiscal year which starts in june. The nx console is coming in november of this year. No way they’ll wait til next november when all their main teams are working on the nx. This is the wii u’s last year.

    1. Apparently amd will be getting income for new apu chip sets in the second half of this year. Why would nintendo buy them and wait another year to release them? Doesn’t make sense. Unless there’s another console coming out that we don’t know about.

      1. Once they purchase chips then they have to set the chips to their standards. It will not be an off the shelf chip but it will get customized by nintendo. This is the reason they never figured out what is inside the wii u other than the basics.

        1. Also, they will discuss their plan in next fiscal year. There is no confirmation of a NX release this fiscal year. Only the mention of some of the new businesses will launch this fiscal year. Also, AMD is not the only hardware partner Nintendo has. Lastly, April starts the new fiscal year for Nintendo, it is not started in June.

            1. Whether there is a new console or not, I have new games to play. I don’t even care when the NX come out. I buy products when they on the market not assumed to be on the market. I really hope it works out that way for you.

            1. They’ve been preparing the launch of the nx before april of last year. It says they have been doing this in the last and curren fiscal year. You are telling me it takes over two years to prepare for a launch?

              1. Yes it does. Do people remember Iwata saying that he announced the NX earlier than normal and that it is a long way off?

              1. Again, no proof that is happening. You have no idea what they working on or collaborating on within their organization. You are making a guess based on what is announced right now.

                  1. Yes, he did say that. So they can’t make anymore games for the wii u based on the one type of game would be made on the next home console.

              2. Retro’s CEO basically stated before they werent only doing 1 game on Wii U. Their current game will be Wii U, and Wii u isn’t “dead” dead is the Vita, dead is no profits, Wii U is making a profit just not a big one.

            Damn. Sad but I’m ready to put the Wii u away. Cmon NX don’t fail me now.

      1. {{Nintendo Tri-Force Hero Kokiri Kid adventurer}}

        Damn. You say that like a bad thing. Donkey kong, Diddy and cranky are all cool.

    1. Nintendo Sub-Commander Cereza

      Nice to see you continue to evolve Tet- Commander. Also, it seems the calibrations on our newest weapons are almost complete. I so look forward to the day our opposition gaze at our magnificence in both longing and fear.

  2. So judging from this interview it seems that Nintendo will be heavily focusing on the NX and their mobile venture which means the Wii U will be an afterthought and the 3DS is soon to follow. I can’t say I don’t blame them when the Wii U has been selling horribly and sales for the 3DS have been slowing down. I do think however that the Wii U will get a few more games in 2017 before Nintendo completely ignores it, same goes for the 3DS. They have to put all of their efforts and major 1st party titles on the NX since it will be more powerful new hardware

  5. I was already really excited about what Kimishima has planned for the NX, but every new (Reputable) article makes me more hyped and curious about what were gonna see. Never really felt too hyped for the Wii U unveil, honestly.. >_>

      I’m trying to get too hyped. But who am I kidding? I’m HYPED! 😳 So curious. I can’t contain my excitement.
      These are exciting times Nintendo fans!

      ~*Seems interesting enough. Then again, it’s not much of a teaser trailer if it doesn’t pique your interest. Have you tried emailing this to MyNintendoNews?*~


  8. well i think they are spending there time on discussing the proper effort for the NX console and find a proper release date for it but they are taking there time on making a huge deal with the company.
