Nintendo won't show off NX until 2016, reconfirms Iwata


Nintendo won't show off any new hardware at E3 this year, as reconfirmed by president Satoru Iwata during an investors conference.



 “We do not plan on talking specifics about the the NX until 2016,” he said, adding, “Presently, we cannot talk about the time period when it [the NX] will go on sale or what it’s like,” added Iwata.

“Because we are calling it a ‘new concept,’ we are not thinking of this as a ‘simple replacement’ for the 3DS or the Wii U.”

Nintendo mentioned NX back in March, at which point it also revealed that it would not be talking about the new concept until 2016, however that didn't stop people thinking that it would show it off at E3.

Would only consider pre-ordering this if it a) contains a custom built Nvidia chip inside, b) Pokémon Battle Coliseum and c) a Complete edition of Dead or Alive with all the costumes ;) were announced as initial titles for it and it's backwards compatible with Amiibo! This announcement back in March 2015 has already had the adverse effect of making me less interested in buying games for this generation of consoles and after having sampled the Splatoon demo on Wii U, it's pretty clear that the console packs some graphical power (the rainbow-colored sunlight flares into the screen were simply gorgeous and the levels were pretty big as it is and the motion control was pretty spot on too! SO GLAD I have the collector's edition with the three Amiiboes pre-ordered at that rival website! Why couldn't ShopTo have stocked that edition?!), so I have tons of faith in Ninty's next venture at this rate ;) ;)!

Oops, you do have that edition available but it's more costly for Day One release by £17 and you don't get that cute inkling cap with the pre-order! Might cancel my pre-order at the rival website, though as ShopTo is likely to lower the price after release, right?
