With the Nintendo NX expected to arrive soon, many are fearing that the console could be as unsuccessful as its predecessor, the Wii U. However, Nintendo America president Reggie Fils-Aime is promising that the Nintendo NX launch will be much better, chalking up its previous mistakes to experience and learned lessons.

In an interview with AList, via ValueWalk, Reggie Fils-Aimes reassured gamers and enthusiasts alike that the Nintendo NX launch would not disappoint. "One of the things that we have to do better when we launch the NX [is] we have to do a better job communicating the positioning for the product."

Talking more about how to better present the Nintendo NX to consumers, Fils-Aimes continued, "We have to do a better job helping people to understand its uniqueness and what that means for the game playing experience. We have to do a better job from a software planning standpoint."

Furthermore, Nintendo has already confirmed that the Nintendo NX will be launched simultaneously with "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." Reports claim that this isn't the only title that could be available when the Nintendo NX launches either, noting that it would be a smart move to use other games as leverage to increase interest for the Nintendo NX.

Meanwhile, The Bitbag reported that there's a high probabilty that "Pokemon Sun and Moon," "Ever Oasis," "Mario Party Rush" and "Pokemon GO" might be readily available on the Nintendo NX as well. Some game titles have already been confirmed to be part of the lineup, while others still remain as rumors.

Reports claim that the Nintendo NX release date is slated for March 2017. However, many onlookers can expect to get their eyes on it as early as September when it sees its reveal at the Tokyo Games Show, per TechAdvisor.
