Nintendo President Kimishima Says NX Isn’t Coming This Holiday As They Wanted Games To Be Ready

Japanese publication The Nikkei has recently had the opportunity to speak to Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima about the forthcoming Nintendo NX platform. One of the things that Kimishima was asked was why the console wasn’t going on sale this Christmas which is when you would have thought it would be made available. Kimishima says that the company wanted to make sure that they had the software to accompany the hardware which presumably means that the games just aren’t ready for a fall release. The Nintendo NX is expected to launch globally in March 2017.

“However, it’s not merely the successor to the handheld 3DS or stationary console Wii U. This will be hardware that’s been made with a new way of thinking. I’d like to announce more particulars regarding its specs and how it works another time this year.”

“When asked why Nintendo wasn’t launching the NX in time for this year’s big holiday season, Kimishima explained that Nintendo wanted to make sure there were games to go along with the NX.”

“When the Nikkei asked Kimishima what the likelihood that Wii U production would end, the Nintendo president replied, “Since we are making a big shift to the NX, there is that possibility (in the future).”

  1. It all makes a lot of sense. Don’t launch a system if you don’t have a strong stable of diverse games to go with it and don’t rush something that isn’t ready… basically two mistakes from the Wii U. TK is a very sound businessman and he understands what the landscape is like in terms of how to make a successful console launch and it really is all about playable. high demand games being available for a console right away.

    Honesty is good when it comes to the Wii U. Nintendo is completely overhauling their focus, so Wii U production might last as long as Zelda for Wii U sells. Personally I wouldn’t mind if it skipped Wii U all together because I plan on getting the NX day one, but I know that is a very unpopular idea.

    TK reminds me of the CEO they brought in on Silicon Valley

      1. Yeah, even if it’s just a mention like the Pikmin 4 thing.
        You know what I’d like to see? More videos in which the producers/directors of the games (Aonuma, Takahashi, Tanabe or similar people) give some info on their projects, like Harada did with Lost Reavers when it was just known as Project Treasure. It would give people something to talk about, build up some hype and make some lesser known faces more known.

      2. That would be good and goes in line with what TK was saying about getting the names and faces of game developers and directors for Nintendo out there more.
        Lost Reavers, unfortunately, was pretty clunky and not a good game.

      1. For me, as pissed as I am at Nintendo, whether I get NX day 1 or not all depends on the console’s features. If it’s not on par with PS4, preferably better than it, with all of the things it has like a universal account system, no region locking, cross save/buy, no console locked bullshit forcing us to use some Dark Age transfer system, & better online, I’m so not getting it day 1. Not even for Zelda. If it has all of those & is better, or at least on par with it, I might actually get it day 1. But one fuck up over the course of the console. Just fucking one, never again! Nintendo will no longer equal day 1 for me.

The one any only thing that would change my mind is if it launched with a legit Negroid game. And I doubt it will happen. I’ll buy 3re party on my 3rd party box, and play Zelda on my WiiU.
        I have my Starfox, frustrating as it is, I’m going to enjoy it. I’ll have my Zelda. Metroid is nowhere in site. Any other IP I give two fucks about, I can play on my 3DS.
        I didn’t cave and buy Splatoon, I’m not buying NX day 1. Sending Nintendo a message the only way they listen to, my $$$. If I’m the only one, so be it.

Maybe we truly are outnumbered & we just don’t want to wake up & realize that those idiots & fanboys have won. Nintendo is going to forever pull their bullshit because they know they can get away with it. Before we know it, Nintendo will be following Sega & Konami as they go 75% into mobile because that’s where the majority of Nintendo consumers will be at. Meanwhile, we hardcore gamers, being a sad minority, will forever be left behind like a very bad disease. :/ NX might very well be last chance for Nintendo. Reinvent themselves & evolve into something wonderful like Sony did with PlayStation 4 or die as they mutate into something grotesque & money hungry!

I said this on another site about the Fire Emblem censoring: Nintendo could cut 70% of content from one of their games and Nintendo’s fans would eat it up like it’s the best thing in existence.

      7. Yeah Nintendo’s lost me at Day 1. i bought the Wii day 1, and there was a bit of waiting in between the first few games. The Wii U was also a day 1 purchase and literally the only thing I played on it for the first few months was Nintendo Land. I’ll wait until a few good games are released to get the NX. All of the bells and whistles that current gen consoles have would be really nice, but knowing Nintendo, I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    1. Exactly. I remember a while back when the late Satoru Iwata said that the DS wasn’t really a successor to the GBA and that it was a ” third pillar “and we all know how that turned out and also look how he used the word ” stationary ” when regarding The Wii U. It means that that NX won’t be a traditional home console or handheld because it will be a hybrid of two. The NX will certainly be replacing both the 3DS and Wii U especially when Kimishima-san just admitted that Nintendo is making a ” big shift ” to the new platform

  3. So they’re willing to have another weak E3 and release the NX after the holiday season, just so that the NX can have a slightly better library at launch? I can kinda respect that, but still… E3 matters, man.

    Also, they’ll obviously have to reveal the NX before it releases in March 2017, and it would be in their best interest to reveal it during a big event. If they can’t show it at E3, then they have to show it at TGS in September.

    But I find it very hard to believe that they’ll have anything to show in September, if they have absolutely nothing to show in June, at E3. That’s only 3 months. Good luck, Nintendo.

And showing it at E3 is not the end all be all… That is 9 months before the launch. They could wait till September, and then have a “real” direct reveal after the new year

      Exactly. You know how half the reason why the PS4 is selling like crazy as it is? Because Sony hyped and marketed the system greatly during the BIGGEST GAME EVENT OF THE YEAR. Even if Nintendo does a direct later, I doubt they’ll reach as much people as they could have at E3. Which I believe it would have been in Nintendo’s best interest to release the NX during the end of 2016 or early 2017. It can also be argued that the Christmas season is a missed opportunity as well.

  4. As long as they market and advertise this thing PROPERLY!

      1. While it would certainly give me nostalgia, I don’t think that would work very well. I see very few ways where that wouldn’t fall apart.

        What they should be doing is focus on the consoles strengths. Remember the Wii’s initial commercials where the two Japanese men started randomly going to people houses, had the controller in their hands, bowed, and said, “Wii would like to play?” That campaign was absolutely GENIUS and I’m confident that it helped to create a better understanding of what the system and the controller could do.

        I remember when the initial DS commercials came out and people were confused in the beginning. Nintendo quickly wised up, though, and stepped it up (and released Nintendogs, which in my opinion, also saved the DS from an early death). I can tell that this wise decision was trickled into the Wii later.

        Then they went back to really bad marketing on the 3DS commercials and that mentality was unfortunately trickled onto the Wii U. I mean, c’mon! Don’t tell me that the Wii U couldn’t have been marketed properly! Companies that have WORSE products have been able to successfully sell their stuff better than the BS Nintendo pulled. It confused people of what the GamePad is. They only focused on asymmetrical gameplay and that’s it. Remember when they said in E3 2010 that the Wii U’s premise was a console that could be used for everyone, but also something that could be used specifically for you? And the majority of their initial video was showing things like the drawing capabilities, new ways to interact with the screen, a good-looking Zelda, and more importantly, OFF-TV PLAY???? Geez! It’s like they forgot to show any of that in their first commercial campaigns! Seriously, my 10-year old niece has been able to convince people to buy the Wii U JUST FOR THE OFF-TV PLAY FEAURE ALONE.

        My goodness is Nintendo really spotty with their track record in marketing.

I don’t think that strong of a personality would suit her that much (being compassionate is one of her few consistent defining traits), but it surely would have been better than what we got.

I feel there will be a trend of releasing “dormant” franchises on mobile down the road in order to Nintendo sense their market reception. Once the franchise shows some kind of potential, they will move it back to their 1st-class.

        Again, I’m in Pachterizing mode as of now. And I confess it’s funny. I wish I could get paid to write such predictions on the internet. LOL!

It would probably depend on the game, like how splatoon basically requires the gamepad but mario kart you have many options, i could see how they might make a new pro controller that has a screen built into it though. I also think that the any second screen controllers will incorporate the super stable 3D from the new 3DS as well. These are all just my personal speculations though and I totally would not be surprised if the NX is something completely out of left field that absolutely no one was expecting…

      2. Honestly, I wish Nintendo would quit with the gimmicks and just produce a serious gaming console. But now they are so well known for it, I’m sure it’s hard for them to not try to innovate.

  7. They can launch it whenever the fuck they want, is march an awful time to launch a console? Eh sort of, but it doesn’t really matter. The NX, whatever it is, will succeed because it FUCKING HAS TO for them, Wii U was a colossal failure, yes the company has money to burn for 15 million years but you can imagine that nintendo would like it if people actually bought their console and the shareholders would probably appreciate it as well. If this thing sells 15 units the first year then they are gonna have to grit their teeth and just shove this down people’s throats til they do. There is no giving up in around 3 years for this, and for a march release the games better be a kick in the balls for people that really do not want to buy the thing but they are about to release F-ZERO HYDRA ZX DRAGON and METROID UNIVERSE CHOCOLATE SAMUS, you get the idea, not even those 2 series but just shit that FINALLY fucking delivers on what fans want, and a lot of it. I didn’t buy the wii U until splatoon so I don’t have a great recollection of it’s launch but I hear it was just ports for the most part, I bought a 3DS at launch and the games were fucking pathetic. So hopefully they give me a reason for saving money over the course of 10 months, Zelda U/NX is already 1, sixty bucks right there, now give me at least 2 other ones to buy with it, blow me away out of the gate don’t make people wait for this console’s splatoon.

      1. Ugh! Don’t remind me! Although, I did have fun with Assassin’s Creed III, Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper, & Most Wanted U. And I regret getting Hyper since Ultimate came out later that year. :/

      2. As for Most Wanted U, I sadly lost interest after I got bored of the fact it wasn’t a faithful remake of the original & was simply a fucking watered down version with no story what so fucking ever! Oh & less racers to beat, too! <.<

    1. Well they do have other ideas on getting the console ready for the release date and just to be honest nintendo do have there ways on making money off on the development of there games and the NX but they decided to put unannounced Wii U games on the NX so I don’t think Nintendo fans are not that delusional to see how much money Nintendo make after there last quarter.

      1. I really hope they just quit with wii U already, I mean they are done but I don’t want to see any straggling games they have sort of been working on but don’t even expect to do well, I like the thing but they clearly do not want to fucking touch the thing anymore and it’s completely reasonable why they wouldn’t since they are gearing for it’s replacement. It’s kind of pathetic they are still clinging to the narrative of it not being one when they just confirmed pretty much that production is going to stop and Zelda is also launching on the thing, oh man they might sell 5 more from lying to people. If we get a couple more wii U games maybe one will be pikmin 4 if they haven’t pushed it to NX which they should have, anything else is probably going to be bad and just make people mad. Because if we get anything else for wii U, it can’t be anything that costed them any money or time to make, mario tennis and that animal crossing thing were abysmal, they are just damaging their series by putting out stuff just to have something out.

      2. well they ruin F-zero because they never had a chance to bring it back in there consoles. to be honest, nintendo is really straggling with there development because they are trying so hard on making a good nintendo titles to impress there fans.

    1. It probably covers that whole time frame, but I mean realistically, how long can they seriously wait? In 10 months they are going to announce the console that is following one of their biggest failures ever, they are going to need insanely good marketing everwhere. Remember how big a hit the “Wii would like to play!” ads were? Has to be somehting on that level, I doubt they can hold out that long since people outside of close ties need to develop on it and it just gets increasingly more likely that it will leak. That and again the fact they really, really need to let people know what this is and why the fuck they need it. At the latest, maybe September? But who knows they are batshit insane it could be a week before it’s in gamestop.

    also, nintendo did explain why the NX games is coming in 2017 they said along with the new console.

  9. My prediction, is the NX is a handheld, that when you are home, connects to a larger unit that boosts GPU (or the system switches to use the larger GPU) and the home-box that the NX plugs into also hooks to the TV.

    So, a handheld that connects to a larger, external GPU, Hard-drive and possible suplimental OS, with all the standard USB and HDMI ports.

    That’s my guess based on the patents we’be seen. :)

    I’m still not buying one day one. I’ll get one cheap the year or two after, and just buy whatever special edition Zelda U NX version game to play later, and download Zelda on my WiiU.

  10. People are saying maybe Nintendo has finally learned from their mistakes with the Wii U. But the problem is… a bad launch line up was just one of many problems Wii U had & this only shows they learned from that fuck up, not the countless others. After all, most of everything else we’ve heard so far is just rumors & speculation. It’s too early to say Nintendo has learned from their Wii U mistakes.

    1. I don’t even think the launch lineup was bad. The games I played for the first 1.5 yrs were launch titles.
      MH3U, NFSMW, ME3 (which was spectacular if people had tried it), ZombiU was fun as hell, damn be the glitches, Little inferno… I was happy… until I realized I wasn’t getting anymore games for 2 years, and Nintendo had no idea how to dev in HD, and 3re party was leaving. X.x

      1. Bad as in the line up was filled with mostly games that had already been out for at least a month or more. So few NEW games for launch.
