Speaking in an interview Nintendo President, Tatsumi Kimishima has addressed and reaffirmed some of the previous statements he has made about the company’s upcoming console.

Kimishima says, “The NX is neither the successor to the Wii U nor to the 3DS, It’s a new way of playing games, which I think will have a larger impact than the Wii U, but I don’t feel it’s a pure replacement for the Wii U.” The claim addresses that the upcoming new console will outperform the Wii U in specs and the market.

Since Kimishima took the title as President of Nintendo, he has wanted to expand upon the hardware and not just create the same version of the box over and over. This addressed the previous issue that the 3DS and Wii U are just different versions of the consoles before them.

Additionally, in the same interview, Kimishima says the company is making moves to enter the film business. These will not be live-action films, but more anime-type movies featuring characters from various Nintendo IPs.

The NX will be released in March 2017 with a special reveal event happening sometime later this year.
