IHS consultancy analyst, Piers Harding-Rolls, thinks we may see, at least, a regional release for the NX this year. If this is true, it most likely will release in Japan first. Some reports also state the NX having a separate handheld device. This device could possibly be the first thing we see released.

 “I think we’ll definitely hear more about the NX at the E3 games expo.

“It’s also possible that we could see a regional launch of the new product into the market this year, even if a global rollout has to wait.”

If Piers Harding-Rolls is right, we might have an interesting 2016 for Nintendo.
