We’ve been only teased for the Nintendo NX, and already speculation is running rampant. But, finally, we’ve got our first juicy details of Nintendo’s next console from the company’s CEO, Tatsumi Kimishima, who says that the Wii U successor won’t be a Wii U 2.
In fact, in a recent interview with TIME, Kimishima notes, “I can assure you we’re not building the next version of Wii or Wii U. It’s something unique and different. It’s something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base.”

He goes on to say, “As far as the NX goes, I’ve said it’s different and obviously a new experience.”
He further noted “how difficult it is to explain to the consumer base what is different and new about the new hardware. It’s difficult to convince them to switch from their current platform to the next platform.”
The Nintendo NX rumors will surely be reinvigorated after these comments by Nintendo’s CEO, and honestly, we’re more excited to see exactly what the new console will be. In fact, we’ve already crafted a Nintendo NX wishlist, and we’ve been following the NX closely.
