The internet has been full of rumors and buzz surrounding Nintendo’s next console, code-named NX. The Reddit community has been a large provider of rumors, and to help filter the most reliable rumors the NX Reddit page’s moderators have posted a special blurb on the right of the NX reddit.
If you have sensitive or privileged information you would like to provide to the community, send it to the mod team. We will review it and if we feel there is sufficient proof to validate the information, we will post it on your behalf to protect your identity.
This message finally gained the attention of an individual who met all the requirements of the NX reddit moderators. The following is still classified as rumor material, but does seem more plausible considering the reddit moderator’s verification of the source and the fact that nothing over-the-top was revealed. Most of the following rumor has to-do with the Nintendo NX’s marketing at retail, the console’s box design and other retailer related information.

- The color scheme for the packaging is white and blue (compared to the Wii U’s blue and black).
- The packaging still says “NX” however there is still no indication if this is a placeholder or the final name.
