Speculate and theorize while you can still can, Nintendo fans—the mystery of the Nintendo NX is almost over!
Nintendo announced this evening on their social media channels that their upcoming console, codenamed “NX” will at long last be revealed tomorrow, October 20th at 7am PT/10am ET. The reveal will come in the form of a trailer that Nintendo tells us “will serve as Nintendo’s preliminary announcement of information regarding the platform.”
It’s about time! Earlier this year, Nintendo claimed that the system will launch in March 2017, however, fans have had to endure months of silence from the Big N, including at this past summer’s E3. Since then, countless rumors, supposed leaks, and potential hardware patents have amassed across the internet. Most prominent have been notions that the system will be some form of home console/handheld hybrid, and that its software will be played on cartridges instead of disks.
Another popular rumor was that, in addition to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo will launch a traditional Mario, and a traditional Pokemon game all within the first six months of the NX’s release.
Will we see some of these proposed entries when the system is finally shown off? We’ll find out tomorrow morning!
