Nintendo Announces New NX Game System | NX

Nintendo has been a big part of the video game scene since the 1970s, providing the world with nine different systems to enjoy the game. Soon, that number will be ten with the upcoming release of the Nintendo NX.

NX is the new console's code name, with the details of the project still currently in development, even preventing Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima from giving away too many details about the system.

"It's not merely the successor to the handheld 3DS or stationary console Wii U," said Kimishima. "This will be hardware that's been made with a new way of thinking."

Although some might be upset at the lack of details about the new system, the NX's release early next year can be expected to feature some of the highly anticipated new games such as the next installment in the Legend of Zelda universe.

What is certain is that this new system will be different from what we've seen from the company in the past. After the less than ideal reception of the Wii U, Nintendo might be using this opportunity to try to increase sales and make the company's chances against Playstation and XBox a little bit better.

According to CNN, the Wii U had only sold approximately 13 million consoles since the system's release in late 2012. Hopefully, the new system will help increase sales and people's interest in Nintendo products in ways to rectify the shortcomings of the Wii U.

More details about this new system can be expected from Kimishima later this year. According to some reports, Nintendo has no plans to feature anything about the NX at E3 but will, instead, focus on the new Zelda game.

So what do you think this new system will be like? Do you think it'll be more successful than the Wii U? Let us know!
