Nintendo's new console NX continues to earn high praise.

We don't know much about the new and mysterious console from Nintendo called NX but apparently Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot knows something we don't.

It is not the first time that Guillemot voice out about how NX would eventually catapult nintendo back to the race. He is totally positive with the outcome and he stated that it will be easy to use and one that allows a different experience from what exist today.

It is no secret that nintendo's previous console name Wii U underperformed. But that doesn't stop nintendo to be back on the spotlight. They made all necessary efforts to mix things up and to adhere on customers desire.

The Wii sold more than 100 million units in its lifetime but the Wii U performed below expectations, selling only 13.02 million consoles since its 2012 release. Which is a huge difference if you are going to compare the numbers. Wii U production hasn't stop but they are no longer expecting their numbers to be better.

Here's the whole script during the interview.

"I believe Nintendo will be back in the race with the NX," Guillemot said during a meeting with investors, according to French journalist Chloe Woitier(via VentureBeat)."The new Nintendo [console] is a fantastic machine," he said. "It's really a new approach, it's really Nintendo, [which is] coming with something new again. We love it.

The system or the new console is rumored to be a handheld console hybrid. It was said also that it might use a cartridge. Nintendo may officially reveal the system in October as per The Wall Street Journal. The console however, will be launch in May 2017.

This might be the last chance for nintendo to impress its consumers as the last console released was a total flop.
