Nintendo has been criticized recently for releasing outdated hardware. The company has hinted that the Nintendo NX console will be more up with the times.
Designer Takashi Tezuka talked more about the Nintendo NX during a new interview with Bloomberg. It sounds like the console will be more in line with what people want in modern times.
Tezuka said the company is strongly about “creating things that are in sync with the times“. It’s possible the console won’t be as underpowered as the likes of the Wii and Wii U consoles. The Wii’s main gimmick was motion controls, while the Wii U has the gamepad, but the latter device never really took off.
Nintendo is working hard to make the NX innovative. There is a reason the company is keeping quiet about specific features for the console. They don’t want any details getting leaked to their competitors.
The Nintendo NX console will be officially announced in 2016. It’s only a few more days until 2016 so it should only be a few weeks or months until we hear something about it. It’s unknown when the console will be released though. Rumors suggest either late 2016 or even 2017 that the console will be out.
