It’s been a really busy day in the Nintendo camp as the company have made a few big announcements via their latest financial report.

Not only have they revealed the release window for their next console but also laid out some of its plans for this year’s E3, delayed one of its biggest releases and revealed what their next mobile game will be.

So let’s break down what Nintendo has announced.

The NX launch window

The biggest announcement from the finanacial report is that their new console, code named the NX, will  have a global launch by the end of March 2017 and that the name NX is just a place holder title as it will not be the final title. On top of this, the console will not be shown before or during this year’s E3.

Legend of Zelda WiiU not coming in 2017 and will be on NX

One of the most anticipated games of 2016 is the new Legend of Zelda but Nintendo have dashed gamers’ hopes as they have delayed the release of the game again. They also announced that it will be a launch title for their new console and that it will be the only game playable on the show floor from them at E3.

Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem coming to mobile

The last big thing that was revealed during the report is that after their first foray into the mobile market with Miitomo and the success of it with it hitting 10 million users, they revealed that the next two games to get the mobile treatment will be Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem, both games should be released by the end of the year.

The next 18 months will be very important for the company and we will hopefully get more details on both the NX and Zelda very soon.
