"The NX is neither the successor to the Wii U nor to the 3DS", said Kimishima (as translated by NeoGAF user GSR). "It's a new way of playing games, which I think will have a larger impact than the Wii U, but I don't feel it's a pure replacement for the Wii U."

Was a poor translation.  He saying it's not just a new Wii U or a new New 3DS.  He's not saying it's not their successor.

Of course ;) *edit: point is game companies lie.

Agreed but this one wasn't a lie so much as a poor translation.  Though, yes, they all have and do lie...though there are sometimes moments when it's not a lie when they say it and things change that make it become one.    Release dates are a good example.  Date X may be the expected day when they announce it.  Releasing it on Day Y doesn't necessarily mean they lied when they said Date X.  But...yeah, they still do lie.

Nintendos ambiguity without clarification isn't really any better than flat out lying either.

Agreed to a point.   When it's a poor translation by a video game forum, that's not really the onus of Nintendo to correct.  But when NOA speaks with the succinctness of a confused child....

Because the architecture is not a major overhaul, it's been optimized and boosted much like the PS4 Pro to the PS4. If we are not calling the New 3DS a new gen to the older 3DS even when it can run games the older 3DS can't, then this is not a new gen.

Switch isn't a major overhaul from wii u. 3ds isn't a major overhaul from ds, yet these are still next gen.

Different architectures altogether so yeah, different gen, if you are talking about appearance then we haven't changed much since the PS2 I guess.
