No NX Reveal at E3, Nintendo Says
"We do not plan on talking specifics about the NX until 2016."
Nintendo will not reveal any new information or show NX, its next gaming console, at E3 2015.
Company chief executive Satoru Iwata was asked specific details on the console during a recent meeting with investors, but replied by reiterating that Nintendo does not plan to fully reveal NX until 2016.

"We do not plan on talking specifics about the NX until 2016," he said, as translated by Kotaku.
Iwata would not provide any additional details or a release window for the NX, only repeating that it is "calling it a 'new concept' ... not thinking of [it] as a 'simple replacement' for the 3DS or the Wii U."
Smart phone titles and quality of life experiences would also not be represented at E3.
"Since we understand that E3 is an event for dedicated video game machines, we do not intend to discuss the smart devices as well as quality of life," said Iwata.
During the presentation Iwata once again addressed why the NX had been announced before Nintendo was ready to fully reveal it, saying the company wanted to affirm its commitment to home gaming, following the announcement of its partnership with DeNA and plans to develop mobile games.
The sentiment echoes previous statements Iwata made during the initial NX announcement to the same effect: "As proof that Nintendo maintains strong enthusiasm for the dedicated game system business, let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated game platform with a brand-new concept under the development codename 'NX'."
"It is too early to elaborate on the details of this project, but we hope to share more information with you next year."
As part of its recent earnings report, the Japanese game giant also updated its launch schedule for upcoming Wii U games. Interestingly, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U (working title) is now listed as "TBD." The game, previously expected to launch by the end of 2015, was delayed back in March as a result of Nintendo discovering "several new possibilities" for the project.
