Iwata: No NX or Mobile Focus at E3

Despite not even being half-way through 2015, Nintendo has already dropped two bombs regarding their future plans: the dedicated console NX and their collaboration with DeNA on mobile. Don’t expect to see either of them at next month’s E3 extravaganza, however. Satoru Iwata told investors that the company will keep the attention on their current platforms, Wii U and 3DS (translations to follow).

With both platforms in their later years, Nintendo is expected to showcase software for the next year. While there will certainly be presence from a new Star Fox game and Mario Maker, Zelda Wii U will not show at all and is expected in 2016 (or TBD if Nintendo’s release calender is to be believed). As for the 3DS, its current line-up is looking sparse, but it is possible that Yo-Kai Watch will have presence to build hype for its 2016 launch (it is being published by Nintendo in the west).

Nintendo’s first of five mobile games will launch this fall, while the NX will be shown for the first time in 2016. No word on when we’ll see the company’s non-wearable QOL product in the near-future.
