Nintendo will showcase the "The Legend of Zelda" at E3 2016. Nintendo

Apart from hints that it is a hybrid console and handheld device, there hasn’t been much in terms of confirmed hardware specs for the Nintendo NX. The company’s promised reveal of its new console has not yet happened, so fans are still in a wait-and-see mode.

However, retailer Tesco has already posted what could probably be the biggest leak for the Nintendo NX so far: the release date and price. A landing page for the Nintendo NX was spotted on its official website Nintendo Life reported.

The page has already been taken down as of writing, but there was mention of “Nintendo NX” in the same breath as the Wii U. There’s also a placeholder release date of Dec. 31. Finally, there’s also the price point, revealed to be at £349.99 (approx. AU$595).

The release date seems to very likely be a placeholder. That’s because the expected launch date is sometime in early 2017 at best. However, there was an earlier report that production for the Nintendo NX has already started, so the possibility of changes for launch is still likely.

In fact, new info, this time via a NeoGAF user who managed to land himself a transcript of a Foxconn sketch artists on some hardware details of the Nintendo NX. PVP Live has obtained the translated version, and it corroborated the fact that it’s a hybrid, as well as rumours that it might not be as powerful a device compared to the current forerunners, PS4 Pro and Xbox One S.

“Whatever the solution will be, the computing power it has fall far behind a PS4, let alone a PS4 Pro. Don’t have high hopes for that. The selling point for it is high portability and hybrid providing rich gameplay possibilities,” said the NeoGAF user.

Some details of the handheld aspect were also revealed, including a six-inch 720p screen and low-TDP SoC for basic performance. The closest comparison for the handheld is Nvidia Shield.

The Nintendo NX has been teased way back. But from the looks of it, it’s possible that some of its features may lag behind its current competitors. Some studios like Ubisoft did praise its novelty as a device, so there’s a chance that some of its design and performance aspects have been changed during production.
