In a bid to regain their former glory in the console race, Nintendo is launching a new console next year. And by the looks of it, the company is eager to get ahead of the competition.
According to reports, Nintendo’s next-gen console (code-named “NX”) will have a global launch on 2017, and it’s going to be a a move away from the current Wii-U:
“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.” Tatsumi Kimishima reportedly said to Japanese paper Nikkei
It also looks like Nintendo is keeping the design and specs of the NX under wraps.

Nintendo reportedly said, however, that more information on the NX later this year.
Well, at least we got Zelda to look forward to in E3, hopefully no more delays on this one since it’s coming out for both the Wii-U and NX.
Are you looking forward to the NX?
