Japanese gaming giant Nintendo on Thursday teased a glimpse of its new NX video gaming system via Twitter.
Nintendo of America, the company's stateside business, tweeted to say a preview trailer about the NX will be available on October 20 at 7 a.m. PT (10 a.m. ET / 10 p.m. HK/SIN).
In another tweet in Japanese, Nintendo said the trailer would be about 3 minutes long.
The console was expected to be released around the world in March 2017, but official details have been limited, with Nintendo describing it as a "brand-new concept" without further explanation in its April-June quarter earnings report.
In July, some rumors about what the system would look like surfaced, when Eurogamer, a gaming news website, reported that the NX would be a portable, handheld console with detachable controllers.
The report, citing sources, said the system could connect to a television for gaming on the big screen. To be sure, Nintendo told Eurogamer it was unable to comment on various rumors and speculations.
The NX could provide Nintendo's gaming console business a boost, after the company reported dedicated video game hardware sales fell to 43.66 percent on-year to 25.1 billion yen ($242.54 million) in the three months ended June 30.
