After the tremendous success of the Wii and the tremendous flop of the Wii U, Nintendo announced their next console, currently codenamed “Nintendo NX” with a release date of March 2017, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild being a launch release.
Loads of rumours have been circulating about this device, including the likes of it being a “handheld/console hybrid”, it being more powerful than the PS4, it being something “revolutionary” and “a game changer” by several people who have seen it already, and it having something to do with VR. Of course all these were rumours and were the only things Nintendo fans like myself were clinging onto.
But look no further, for Nintendo of America confirmed on Twitter that an official reveal is coming tomorrow at 7 a.m. Pacific/10 a.m. Eastern and oh man am I excited, just because I want to know what this thing finally is and see what this “new, revolutionary machine” is finally.
Also this was the pet project of the late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.
What do you guys think? Are you excited, because I sure as hell am!
