Fans of the Nintendo NX have been anticipating its release date announcement for the last few weeks, but now something may have just pushed back the released even further.

Chinese firm AIkun just released a new gaming tablet, the Morphus X300, that has the exact same form that the Nintendo NX was rumored to have had - a detachable controller that can be used as a handheld or on TV like a traditional console. According to IGN, the system also has a rotating camera, supports game downloads, and finishes off with a 5-hour battery.

This device was announced in 2015 and went out for crowdfunding, though it failed. Now, it will retail for $300.

Since everything about the Nintendo NX is really still a mystery - find out more about it in our complete guide to the Nintendo NX - it can't really be said if they are being upstaged by this reveal. Still, it has been reported that the Nintendo NX will be a handheld/console hybrid with detachable cartridges, controllers, and other accessories.

One retailer, Tesco, even advertised the Nintendo NX as having a price tag of £349.99, which would make it direct competition for the PS4 Pro. This also means that the device is done and ready to go.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has praised the upcoming device, suggesting that it would put Nintendo firmly in the mix with the PS4 and Xbox One.

Game designer Michel Ancel fuelled speculation as well, posting concept art for Beyond Good and Evil 2.
