They won't be saying anything more about it until 2016, so it probably won't come out until at least 2017. The main point of mentioning it now was just to make sure the headline from the DeNA press conference wasn't "Nintendo goes third-party".
The fact that they said "game platform" instead of "console" sounds to me like they're going with the idea Iwata was talking about before about how the difference between the console and the handheld should be more like the difference between an iPad and an iPhone. About 2017 to 2018 would be a logical timing for a new console and a new handheld (five years after the Wii U, two to three years after the New 3DS), and NX could easily stand for Nintendo Cross-Platform (but X could stand for anything really).
