or stay tuned for e3 2015 when they bring it up again
They won't reveal more info at E3 2015, that is for certain.

One bit of info about this console is that Satoru Iwata says that Nintendo would want NX to surprise consumers. Source

Nothing new, I believe. Nintendo aimed their previous systems to surprise people, too.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime implied NX is the next home console.
Quote from: Reggie Fils-Aime
"From a Nintendo perspective, we clearly have strength here in the Americas, we have strength in Europe and we have strength in Japan," Fils-Aime said. "That isn't necessarily true of some of our more direct competitors. We've also said publicly that we are already hard at work on our next home console and that's another element we'll be talking about much later."

I had this really good idea that it should be backwards compatible with GameCube, Wii and Wii U games, but that prolly won't happen...

He may be refering to a REAL home console they already started developing not including the NX :P

Wii U flopped at launch and I think if Nintendo were smart they'd boost their graphical capabilities to match the two other home consoles.

It didn't necessarily flop at launch, but it just lost momentum immediately after the holidays were over.

Nintendo can boost their graphical capabilities to match with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but they won't. If they do, they would probably lose money because it's expensive. They want to keep costs down before trying to push it.

I get what Reggie is implying about NX, but I still don't think it will replace the Wii U. It seems to be a "third pillar" console along with the 3DS and the Wii U. Of course, we don't know for sure until 2016, when Nintendo reveals more information about the NX.

Some rumours have popped up about NX.

Quote
Nintendo will not create an Android system, but instead will emulate Android games. Its not something thats confirmed, but just an interpretation of the conversations. (Think how Blackberry is doing it)
When Nintendo announced their mobile games, Amazon was very interested in having the games also be on the Amazon App store.
Nintendo games will be on the Amazon store on day one, or shortly after Play Store and App Store.
Amazon is asking Nintendo what they need to do to have Amazon App Store games play on Nintendo consoles
Amazon got the impression that Nintendo is thinking about emulating Android games.

So another rumor has come up. The rumor states that the NX may come in 2016 and Nintendo may be aiming at a $149.99 price point.

An article from Fortune suggests that Nintendo started talking to third-parties at E3 2015 about the NX.

That video has things that make it believable, but there are so many more things that make that fake.

Basically took the Wii U, chopped off the right end, and stuck on that stand for the Wii. Obviously fake.

Same thing for the controller. Just replaced the L/R buttons (analog triggers) like those on the Wii U GamePad, and then slapped the NFC chip area onto the center of the controller.

Overall, this whole video screams fake right from the beginning.

Also the controller doesnt have the Power button and later on the vid it has the power button XD
