Will Nintendo's Next Console Get It Right This Time?
New rumors suggest Nintendo is moving quickly to get its next-gen console out, but it doesn't sound like it's cutting corners either.By Ben Lawson | October 16, 2015
A new report says Nintendo's next gaming console could be coming in 2016, just four years after the Wii U was released.
The rumor comes from The Wall Street Journal. That outlet has a source saying the video game giant is already sending out software development kits for the console, which is being referred to as the NX.
If it really does come out in 2016, that would mean a relatively short lifespan for Nintendo's current-generation game console, the Wii U. Although, with only 10 million units sold since 2012, it hasn't been a blockbuster success for the company. (Video via Nintendo)
