Nintendo NX will launch in March 2017; Zelda Wii U delayed again to receive a simultaneous release on Wii U, NX


The Nintendo NX is coming… not as soon as some hoped, but much sooner than most of us expected. The consolemaker held their yearly financial briefing a few hours ago, and confirmed the NX will receive a global launch in March 2017.

The console, which is around 315 days away from release and described by Nintendo as “a brand-new concept,” is still a big mystery to fans. However, a Q&A session with executives did shed some more light on the NX’s future.

According to a post on Nintendo’s Twitter account, The Legend of Zelda Wii U will be delayed once again, so it can receive a simultaneous launch on the Wii U and NX. The additional development time was also granted to make “quality improvements” to the game.

Unfortunately, the NX is expected to skip this year’s E3 Expo, so it might be a while before we learn anything else about Nintendo’s “brand-new concept.”
