Nintendo NX Manufacturing in October
Digitimes has reported that recently Nintendo asked its supply chain partners to start pilot production in October, at the latest for the Nintendo NX. The console will be manufactured by Foxconn Electronics, and wants the group to begin pilot assembly on the new machine by October “at the latest.”
Nintendo in March announced its plan of releasing Nintendo NX in 2016 and has started visiting its supply chain partners recently. The orders are expected to be finalized in February or March 2016 and mass production will start in May or June 2016, while the console’s official launch may take place around July, the sources said.
“Nintendo reportedly is looking to ship 20 million Nintendo NX in the first year. The shipment volume of Wii U is estimated at two million units in 2015” according to Digitimes Research.
We personally believe this could be true as we have heard about Nintendo making a new console back in December 2014.
