Nintendo announces work on new console, NX

Amidst its announcement about partnering with mobile games company DeNA, Nintendo also announced that it was working on its next gaming hardware device (platform?) code named NX. More would be shown next year (2016), said Iwata.

"Nintendo has decided to deploy its video game business on smart devices, but it is not because we have lost our passion or vision for the business of dedicated video game systems", he said.

"On the contrary, because now we have decided on how we will make use of smart devices, we have come to hold an even stronger passion and vision for the dedicated video game system business than before."

"As proof that Nintendo maintains strong enthusiasm for the dedicated game system business", Iwata adds, "let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated game platform with a brand new concept under the development codename 'NX'."

While not surprising that Nintendo is working on the next thing, no real details were given, leaving us to speculate rampantly on the internet.
