In a rather stealthy announcement late last night, Nintendo took to social media to confirm that the NX will launch in March of 2017. Also, the next installment in The Legend of Zelda franchise has been delayed once again for a simultaneous release on both the NX and Wii U consoles in 2017 and that will be the focus of their E3 presence.
