Awhile after the original post, Nintendo of America also tweeted about it, suggesting a “Preview Trailer” will be shown.
Speculations of the console have always been wild. According to a report from Eurogamer a few months back, the NX will be a hybrid console that allow players to bring along with them or be plug into a dock station and play it on the television. If the information is to be believed, we can expect a pretty special console this time. Nintendo has always put innovations into their consoles, proven by the Wii and Wii U. Like it or not, Nintendo has brought us several new ways to interact with a medium that is heavily base on interaction.
What was actually confirmed is that during this year’s E3, Nintendo announced a brand new Zelda called “The Legend of Zelda: Breathe of the Wild”. While showing us the new game using the Wii U, Nintendo also announced that the brand new Zelda will be a launch title for the NX. Reminisce the highly ambitious and gorgeous new Zelda entry below while you wait for the NX announcement tonight.
Finally, we are able to see the NX’s true identity tonight. It will probably look cute, who knows? We’ll find out in a few more hours later!
