According to a new report from DigiTimes, Nintendo has delayed mass production of the NX console in order to consider virtual reality functions and improve the system’s console and handheld integrated experience. The source is close to the production chain for the console and says the console is the long-rumored hybrid that combines handheld and home console gaming. Rumors say it has a 5 to 7-inch display with a controller and joystick for portable play. Additionally, the console was supposed to enter mass production in the middle of 2016, but because of these changes, the new mass production schedule means key components will still be made, but mass production won’t begin until 2017.
