I'm started to wonder if Wii U is going to get replaced before the 3DS.

Maybe they can't get the power consumption for a portable form factor device to be "unifed" to a console in time .... that is harder than making a home console that just plugs into a wall (that's easy).

That is my theory, but more for power than energy consumption. Nintendo needs to pack the handheld NX with as much horsepower as they can. By releasing the homeconsole first, they gain time to tweak the handheld's specs more and to avoid creating an even more demanding home console.

In theory yeah, they could go 28nm for the console processor for now for example, but maybe they are waiting for matured 14nm (or gulp, even 10nm) for a portable. 

Maybe NX itself is some kind of non-traditional "console" to begin with that is portable in itself. 

The 3DS could then stick around as a cheap entry level portable for a few years, it doesn't need many new games since the eShop could be expanded quickly so that it has a playable catalog of thousands of DS and 3DS games. 

It's really weird that we've heard basically nothing on the 3DS successor, even the DS which was selling wwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the 3DS had it's successor already announced by about this point in its lifecycle, yet we've heard nothing on a 3DS successor. No word of dev kits, nothing, nada. NX is always described as a "console".

Those WiiU games might come out before November because there's absolutely nothing in the second half of 2016 besides Zelda.

i still called it

Given the quote in this thread Kimishima never said that those games would come to Wii U so the Wii U could be replaced this year

Where did you read that Kimishima said the Wii U isn't getting replaced this year?

Please understand, it hasn't been confirmed what the NX is (except for it being a dedicated gaming device), and a release date hasn't been announced yet either. So what are you calling?

By the way, I also think it's more likely the NX will release next year than this year.

He is talking about unnanounced 3DS, not Wii U. In fact, this quote is telling more to be replaced this year as there are no more big projects unnanounced.

oh lol. well whatever. still not happening.



This is what was said officially about WiiU

As for the Wii U, we have just passed 10 million units worldwide, so it is not quite on the level of the Nintendo 3DS. However, we have received a great response for titles such as Splatoon and Super Mario Maker, and we would like to continue to release titles we expect to be received positively in the next fiscal year.

Yes, the 3DS needs a lot more games. Especially in the West. Our biggest games are mostly from Japan. You know what I mean. Not Mario or Zelda, but Etrian odyssey and all those types of games. No wonder the West pays little attention.
