Nintendo’s upcoming NX platform could sit next to the Wii U on shelves for over a year before Wii U production comes to a stop.

Nintendo is expecting to cease production of the Wii U console by March 2018, as revealed by Nintendo CEO and president Tatsumi Kimishima during an investor’s Q&A session. Other information discussed during the session included details on Nintendo’s previous fiscal year, upcoming releases, and plans for future consoles.

Nintendo’s NX console, while still only designated by a codename, had its release window announced as March 2017 during the same investor’s meeting. Not only will Nintendo spend much of 2017 promoting two separate consoles, the systems are even sharing the launch of one of Nintendo’s biggest upcoming games, the still-untitled Legend of Zelda game, which was delayed out of its original 2016 launch window.

That Legend of Zelda game will be a major presence at E3 2016 and be the only playable Nintendo title on the show floor. The NX console will not be making an appearance at this year’s E3 according to Nintendo.
