At 10am EST this morning Nintendo dropped a Twitter bomb with the announcement of its much anticipated new console: the Nintendo Switch. Info about the Switch has been leaking out for the better part of a year now, but until today the Switch was referred to publicly as the NX.
In March 2017, Nintendo will reportedly do what every other console and tablet maker has failed to do: give us a console that seamlessly moves between portable and stationary gaming.
Nintendo just announced that the Nintendo NX will be out in March 2017. That release window is global.
Nintendo has kept a tight lid regarding Project NX–the company’s next-generation console. After revealing initial details about the new console back in March, Iwata confirmed we wouldn’t see anything come until 2016. Or so we thought.
