Rumor: Nintendo begins production on their NX console


It’s a lazy Sunday, so I guess it’s time for another dose of Nintendo NX rumors… though it looks like Nintendo might finally making some forward progress on their mysterious new console.

DigiTimes, a website devoted to the Japanese technology industry, is reporting that trial production of Nintendo’s NX console has begun at the Foxconn manufacturing plant. Citing “industry sources,” DigiTimes believes that Nintendo will eventually manufacture between 9.5 and 10 million NX consoles per year, though full production likely won’t start until later in the year.

Nintendo’s NX console is expected to launch in March 2017, so it’s a good sign if production has actually begun. But like everything else connected to the NX, we have very little concrete information to go on right now, so hopefully the consolemaker will reveal more details about its next console soon.
