Nintendo forecasts disappointing profits over the next year. That’s why the company used its earnings report to share some news about Nintendo’s future to reassure investors. As expected, the company’s next console is coming soon. But you won’t be able to play it during the holidays as Nintendo plans a global launch for March 2017.
And that’s about all we know. One more thing, the next Zelda game is going to be released simultaneously on the Wii U and Nintendo NX (or whatever it’s called) as a launch title for the new gaming system.
Nintendo has been saying that the NX is a brand new thing. And rumor has it that the NX is going to replace both the Wii U and the 3DS. The console would come with a gamepad that you could use as a portable console when you’re not in front of your TV.
It would make sense as both the Wii U and the 3DS need a successor. The Wii U is now selling poorly, well behind Sony’s Playstation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One. Third-party game developers are also focusing more on Microsoft’s and Sony’s platforms, as well as the PC. (Source: www.techcrunch.com)
