Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima was recently asked about the upcoming NX console in Japan’s Asahi Shimbun newspaper. “It’s something very new,” said Kimishima. “The hardware, the software lineup, all of it is something I’d like to play for the first time myself.”He also explained that the launch of NX is missing the holiday season because Nintendo is prioritizing their software lineup for the console. He says the company has learned from poor reception to the Wii U’s launch lineu

Kimishima explains:

“It’s for the purposes of our game development schedule. When people finish the launch titles, they’ll want things to buy in spring, on summer break, at Christmas. As such, it’s not simply a question of when the hardware’s ready; rather, we need to ensure our software lineup is also in a good place.” — Tatsumi Kimishima
