Folks, it’s finally here. After being teased with a September reveal, and then devastatingly let down, we’ve endured. It’s been a long 50 days since September 1st, but October 20th is our day. Today, we meet the Nintendo NX.
“We Can Build It Better, Stronger…”
Yesterday evening at approximately 8:30 p.m. Eastern, our lives were shaken to the core. Nintendo broke their media silence regarding their upcoming console and offered an invitation. “Be among the first to discover #NX”, they said. “You’re damn right I will be”, I said to no one.
Nintendo is dropping a “preview trailer” for the device at 10:00 a.m. Eastern today. Nintendo of Japan’s Twitter account states that the trailer is 3 minutes in length. Which, thanks to handy math from Polygon, is six times longer than the reveal for the Nintendo Wii U. We’re already off to a good start.
I don’t expect us to get a megaton of reveals at 10:00 a.m. this morning. We’ll see the device, and likely get an idea as to what makes it special. A launch line-up of games though? I’m not so sure. Regardless, whatever the Nintendo NX does turn out to be, I’ll be back here to gush about it (hopefully). See you in a few…
