Nintendo NX to Launch March 2017, Legend Zelda to Launch on Wii U and NX


Nintendo officially announced that the NX will launch in March of 2017, and that the new Legend of Zelda will be on both Wii U and the NX.

The game company has released a financial statement, confirming that their next console, which is not yet officially named, will be launching March 2017. The Legend of Zelda, which was originally announced in 2015 for Wii U, will launch simultaneously on the NX. Although it was not explicitly stated, it’s safe to assume that Zelda will be a launch title for the NX. Here is Nintendo’s statement:

For our dedicated video game platform business, Nintendo is currently developing a gaming platform codenamed ‘NX’ with a brand-new concept. NX will be launched in March 2017 globally.

Unfortunately, the NX will not be present at this year’s E3. Nintendo will focus on The Legend of Zelda, and they plan on unveiling the NX sometime this year.
