The highly anticipated Nintendo NX is set to make its global debut in March 2017, Nintendo officially confirmed.
Nintendo NX has been a hot topic in the gaming world, with a slew of rumors and reports trying to anticipate the next big thing from Nintendo. The NX is even said to be more powerful than the PlayStation 4 "by a noticeable amount," rocking superior CPU, GPU and memory.
Amid a lot of hype and uncertainties, at least one thing's for sure: the so-called Nintendo NX will hit the scene in less than a year.
Nintendo just posted its latest financial report and, among many other details, it also confirmed the NX release time frame.
"For our dedicated video game platform business, Nintendo is currently developing a gaming platform codenamed 'NX' with a brand-new concept," says the company. "NX will be launched in March 2017 globally."
Nintendo further notes that it plans to expand its amiibo product lineup to "maintain momentum," while also boosting sales by offering "new gaming experiences with the use of amiibo."
The company will also continue offering extra download content to enhance each game's characteristics, thus keeping players engaged.
Nintendo plans to extend its mobile presence as well, adding two more smartphone games. Following the whopping success of Miitomo, the company's first mobile game, Nintendo is now bringing Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem to smartphones.
It will be interesting to see, however, just what Nintendo has planned for its NX console in terms of gaming titles. Sure, hardware specs play an essential role, but content can also make or break a device. The Nintendo Wii U stands as an excellent example for this.
Tech Times reporter Cameron Koch previously made a very compelling case as to why Nintendo needs to bring The Legend of Zelda to the NX if it wants to succeed, but it remains to be seen how things will unfold.
All in all, things are definitely starting to look exciting when it comes to next-generation consoles. With the PlayStation Neo, Nintendo NX and Xbox One Slim in the cards, console gamers are apparently in for quite a treat.
