The Nintendo NX will launch March 2017. Reveal later this year (but not E3)

The mysterious new Nintendo NX will finally be revealed later this year, ahead of its release in March 2017. 

Nintendo confirmed the information in a press release, stating that the new tech won't make an E3 appearance so I'm guessing we're looking at some sort of Direct late Summer/Fall.  The device is rumoured to have a mobile-like handset that can function separately to the main home console, leading some interesting faked NX controllers recently.

The company also confirmed that the next Legend Of Zelda will be an NX game, releasing simultaneously on NX and Wii U. That game will will be the focus of this year's E3 for Nintendo and will be playable at the show on Wii U.
