In an interview with the Associated Press, Shigeru Miyamoto commented on the NX:
|“In terms of NX, there’s an idea that we’re working on,” Miyamoto said. “That’s why we can’t share anything at this point, and I don’t want to comment on the other companies. If it was just a matter of following advancements in technology, things would be coming out a lot quicker.”|
So they’re not showing it quite yet due to something new that they’re working on. Or as comment section trolls love to say, “another dumb gimmick.” Could it have something to do with how a handheld and home console work with each other? I don’t think NX is a “hybrid” but more like a “family” of systems, like the iPhone and iPad. Iwata had mentioned that a few years ago… Maybe they would play the same games somehow? Or it could be something completely different, we’ll know soon enough as Nintendo HAS to unveil it this year unless they delay it.
But I don’t see that happening right now.
