Nintendo NX release date, specs news: Will Nintendo showcase the next-gen console at TGS 2016?

(Twitter/NintendoAmerica)"The Legend of Zelda" is set to be released on both Wii U and NX in 2017.

The much-awaited annual Japanese gaming convention, Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2016, is now ongoing, and fans have been pretty hyped for the things they will get to see on the event. One in particular that fans are hoping to see is Nintendo's entry in the next-generation console market, the much-awaited Nintendo NX. 

Reports believe that this may be the perfect — and possibly the only — chance for Nintendo to officially show off the Nintendo NX to the public, since the next-generation console is now set to come out sometime in early 2017.

The event opened its gates on Sept. 15, and it will run through Sept. 18.

There is, however, one complication with this unveiling theory for the Nintendo NX. According to the report from IGN UK, Nintendo has not been very active in the past TGS events, thus making it seem like the showcasing of the console is just pure speculation from the fans and nothing else.

The Japanese company has yet to release any official statement or even some clues that may prove the accuracy of this speculation. As of report writing, Nintendo NX remains absent at the event, and Nintendo is not even included in the list of exhibitors. 

Meanwhile, past reports suggested that a lot of games are now being expected to make their way to Nintendo's next-generation gaming system. One of the titles that have been officially confirmed to come to the port is the eleventh installment in the "Dragon Quest" franchise, dubbed "Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time."

Other titles that are also coming to the platform are: a new "Pokemon" game from Game Freaks; a new "Mario" title, and the much anticipated "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." These games, according to past reports, are going to be released on the NX during the console's first six months of market life.
