E3 has come and gone with very little said about the Nintendo NX, other than Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Amie strongly suggesting it won’t be VR-enabled. As the system is planned to launch in March 2017, however, it’s only a matter of time before we hear more about it.

Why the long wait, though? In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Shigeru Miyamoto stated that the company can’t share anything at this point due to an “idea” that they’re working on. Check out the full quote:

“In terms of NX, there’s an idea that we’re working on. That’s why we can’t share anything at this point, and I don’t want to comment on the other companies. If it was just a matter of following advancements in technology, things would be coming out a lot quicker.”

Now the internet is abuzz with speculation as to what this idea could be, but it’s hard to guess considering the vague terminology. All we know is that the NX won’t simply follow recent technological trends. It’s possible that Nintendo is making sure the other console manufacturers don’t mimic its ideas, as they did with the PlayStation Move and Kinect, but it’s just as possible that Nintendo is using a unique console architecture, or is simple holding back news for a less hectic period.

We’ll be sure to bring you more news on the NX as and when it happens.
