According to recent rumor, European retailers may not be able to order any more Wii Us after September 30th. Nintendo is seemingly taking final orders for the console in the EU, possibly to occupy retailers while Nintendo plans hardware reveal news for the NX. This has led to speculation that fans might be hearing details about Nintendo's next console by October...

Recently, Nintendo filed a new patent for a projector or projection system that will change the fixed viewpoint of video games. The patent abstract reveals that projection technology would be able to correct a graphical layout based on the viewer’s perception of the object by correcting the distortion within the object. This kind of technology would allow for a more dynamic experience in gameplay, should this idea be used for a gaming console of some kind.

Here's an interesting Nintendo NX tidbit for you. The system currently has the least time between reveal and launch of any Nintendo console, as pointed out by NeoGAF user Empyrean Heaven. This would change if it were to be delayed, however. NX is scheduled to launch in March—that much we know. Let us assume it will, at the latest, launch on March 31st. If NX is revealed, at the earliest, tomorrow on the 24th of September...

Ubisoft apparently really likes the NX, whatever it ends up being. Today we learned that they have other games in development for it beyond Just Dance 2017, as they compared their potential offerings to things like ZombiU from the current generation. That's not all though, as Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has gone on to explain a bit about why they are excited, giving some insight into the NX without unveiling what exactly it is (come on Nintendo, any day now!). Here is what he said in an exclusive interview with IGN...

I know we're a little late on the draw here, but my college's internet decided that it didn't want this to go up today. Regardless, let's all wish a Happy 127th Birthday to the Big N! Over the years, they've given so much and taken an equal amount from us. But let's just remember all the things that they've given us and look forward to the hopefully bright future ahead!

We've had various rumors and reports in regards to the NX run across our table, but nothing wholly concrete from any sort of credible source that we ourselves could feel 100% confident in. That is until today, where the Pokémon Company's own CEO makes some very clear and concise comments about the NX itself that all but confirm the hybrid nature of the system. The Wall Street Journal got a chance to talk to Tsunekazu Ishihara about Pokémon being on the NX and here is what he said...

Virtual reality, or VR, has been all the rage recently. Although the hype has been dying down, it's still pretty popular. It's so popular that that Super Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto commented on whether or not Nintendo is ready for VR. When asked by USA Today, Miyamoto had this to say on the subject...

With 2016 being Zelda’s 30th anniversary, there have been nonstop news from the new Zelda game, Breath of the Wild, including a new release from the Ocarina of Time manga. Written and illustrated by Akira Himekawa, the Legendary Edition of this manga will have new colored art pieces and will be released this upcoming November. A new look at Amazon however, has revealed that there will three more Legendary Edition novels, that include Volumes 2 through 4 for different Zelda games that are all available for pre-ordering…

Although Nintendo has (frustratingly) managed to show absolutely nothing except for the month of release for the NX, there are a lot of rumours that have been circulating around the web. The most recent rumours seem to be sporting a lot of fresh information about the upcoming device...

This Thursday on September 1st, Nintendo will be airing a Nintendo Direct for the first time in months at 7AM PT / 10AM ET. The Direct will be focused exclusively on news regarding the Nintendo 3DS system, so those hoping for some information on NX will have to wait. As always, the show will be shown on Nintendo's Twitch and website, but we will also have a stream embedded here at Zelda Informer.

We're not expecting anything Zelda-related...
