Nintendo NX Game Console Teased, No Details To Be Revealed Until 2016 Nintendo made a huge announcement today. The Japanese game company officially announced that they are working on a new game console. The Nintendo NX game console was announced by CEO Satoru Iwata. Nintendo NX is "a dedicated game platform with a brand-new concept." And that, folks, is about as much as we know about the Nintendo NX console. Iwata said that new Nintendo NX details will be announced only next year, i.e. 2016. That's literally all that we know about Nintendo NX, but it's enough to get us excited. The Wii U flopped, and Nintendo knows that it needs to do things differently with its next console if it hopes to survive in the home console market at all. Could the Nintendo NX turn things around?
