Emerging reports have unearthed plans by the Japanese company, Nintendo, to release some interesting new titles along with its Nintendo NX with regional release dates hopefully coming this year.
Piers Harding-Rolls from the IHS consultancy maintained an unwavering optimism that Nintendo will, at least, reveal something at the E3 game expo. He also added that there is a good chance that Nintendo will drop part of its new gaming platform this year. He said –
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.
I don’t know if to get excited about this, but if I had my ways, I would have made sure that I made it to the E3 game expo.
