Nintendo remains adamant that it will not be announcing any news about the in-development NX console at E3 next month.
The message is no different to that given by boss Satoru Iwata when the machine was first announced, when he said that we shouldn’t expect any more information until 2016.
“We do not plan on talking specifics about the NX until 2016,” Iwata again told investors in a Q&A translated by Kotaku. “Presently, we cannot talk about the time period when it [the NX] will go on sale or what it’s like. 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.
“Incidentally, we’re getting various questions for this year’s E3, like ‘Won’t there be a NX announcement?’, ‘Will there be a presentation on smart devices?’, or ‘Will there be more on the quality of life platform?’.
“However, since we understand that E3 is an event for dedicated video game machines, we do not intend to discuss the smart devices as well as quality of life.”
Iwata in the same presentation gave consumers hope that the NX may become the first home console from Nintendo to bypass region locking, meaning games from anywhere in the world could be played on any machine.
The lack of any firm information about the NX hasn’t stopped some retailers from taking pre-ordersfor the machine, however.
