UPDATE: Fabian Mario Döhla has since taken to Twitter to claim that the stream in question was conducted with a close friend and his comments were deliberately exaggerated:

ORIGINAL STORY: Nintendo didn't show off NX at E3 this year, instead choosing to focus on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - a move which seemed to go down better than many expected, given the incredible hype generated by the forthcoming action RPG.

However, Nintendo's decision to keep its next console under wraps frustrated some sectors of the games industry, with claims that the uncertainty surrounding the machine could be undermining consumer confidence. With a release date presumably coming early in 2017, many fans feel that Nintendo should be using the remaining months of 2016 to build anticipation for the new platform. Instead, it currently falls to third-party studios to do that job.

CD Projekt Red PR bod Fabian Mario Döhla is the latest individual to fan the flames, claiming that NX will be "fantastic" in an interview with Rocket Beans TV. A former senior PR person at Sega of America, he says that many European studios are excited about the console:

Host: What do you know about NX?

Fabian: It will be fantastic. As developer [CD Projekt] you get access to the hardware and everybody [at CD Projekt] is looking forward. We know things.

Host: Are you lying now?

Fabian: No, no.

Host: Sometimes I cannot tell if you are telling the truth or not.

Fabian: No, no! It was like this in the past as the Wii prototypes came in, back then called "Revolution". It was so funny that in Japan they were all very excited at the developer studios of SEGA, they thought it was very good. The Europeans took a little longer. Like "Well, maybe this doesn't work", you know, because it was technically just a GameCube. It was not much more. But NX what you hear [of the developers] about NX is all very positive.

Host: But the hardware will be much worse than the new Xbox.

Fabian: I think this will never again be the main emphasis in the future [for Nintendo]. Can it [NX] be better than the new Xbox? Take a realistic point of view: is Nintendo able to build a console that has got more power than Xbox?

While we still don't have any concrete information, it's encouraging to hear that developers are reacting positively to NX. Hopefully Nintendo will unviel the console sooner rather than later.
