Rumors of Nintendo’s next major home console, codenamed Nintendo NX, have resurfaced again today. According to Digitimes.com, the console will start production at the end of Q1 in 2016.

The new console will supposedly be produced by Foxconn, and Nintendo is targeting around 20 million units for shipment in 2016. While Nintendo has high hopes of shipping 20 million units, component manufacturers expect that shipments will be somewhere between 10-12 million units.

Foxconn has not confirmed that it was chosen to produce the NX, but it is not out of the realm of possibilities to assume that it will. Nintendo and Foxconn have a history of working together and Foxconn has produced many of Nintendo’s previous consoles.

Additionally to Foxconn, other suppliers like Foxconn Technology, Macronix, Pixart Imaging, Coxon Precise Industrial, Nishoku Technology, Delta Technology, Lingsen Precision and Jantech will also help supply additional components for the NX.

Information of Nintendo’s new console are limited, but we expect more information to surface at E3 2016.
