Since March 2015, gamers and investors have been awaiting with bated breath for Nintendo’s next big console, codenamed the “NX.” The wait is over. Brace yourselves. Nintendo has Tweeted that you’ll be able to watch the first sneak peak at the NX tomorrow October 20 at 7 AM PT/10 AM ET.

Here’s the timeline of everything we know about the NX. During the 2015 E3 Digital Event, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime announced that the NX would be revealed in 2016. In April 2016, Nintendo Tweeted that the NX would be released on March 2017. And finally, a month before 2016’s E3, Nintendo caught fans off guard when they revealed that the NX would not be making appearance at the show.

Many were left wondering just when Nintendo would reveal the NX. Details on the console have been relatively scarce until now. Tomorrow, we’ll finally have the chance to see the NX for the first time and see what it’s capable of.

One of the strongest rumors about the NX comes from the Wall Street Journal‘s interview with Pokémon Company’s president, Tsunekazu Ishihara. Ishihara has mentioned that the NX is “trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a hand-held device.” Ishihara’s comment has lead to the conclusion that the NX is a hybrid home and handheld console.

Recently, UK-based supermarket Tesco has possibly leaked a price on the Nintendo at around £349.99. Though since the release date is only a placeholder, we’ll just have to wait and see on the actual price confirmation tomorrow.

None of these rumors have been officially confirmed by Nintendo yet. However, Reggie Fils-Aime has stressed that the NX wouldn’t be a repeat of the Wii U. Both Reggie and Nintendo President Tatsumi Kirishima have emphasized that the NX will be a unique experience unlike their previous consoles.

Tomorrow morning, we’ll cover what Nintendo reveals about the Nintendo NX. We’re just as hyped as you are to see the Nintendo NX, we hope to see you then.
