While Nintendo has yet to state anything official regarding the NX console, many believe it to be a new home console which will fill in the role of being a Wii U successor in some capacity.
Although Nintendo has not divulged anything regarding the matter, Koei Tecmo President and CEO Yoichi Erikawa is of the opinion that the upcoming NX will be a dedicated home console. Speaking with 4Gamer; Erikawa discussed what he thinks of NX:
4Gamer: “Lately it seems that [home] consoles haven’t been doing too well, but is that the case? At least that’s what we’re wondering.”
Erikawa: “Actually, I think that it’ll start doing much better. The PlayStation 4 has recently surpassed 2 million units in nationwide sales, and Nintendo announced a new ‘machine’ called the NX. From this point forward, I believe that each company will make clear commitments for these machines.”
While this does not confirm anything, it seems like the upcoming console is going to be closer to Playstation 4 and Xbox One as compared to Nintendo 3DS and DS.
