Nintendo, a maker of entertainment devices, announced on Monday that it plans to unleash all the details about the code-named Revolution console that is supposed to be commercially available in 2006. While some very brief details about the part were already released at Game Developers Conference 2005, the company plans to put the wraps off the specifications of the console at the next show.

“You’ll hear all the incredible details about Nintendo’s upcoming games and hardware, including our next home console, code-named Revolution. You won’t want to miss it,” a letter by Nintendo to journalists dedicated to game consoles, which was published by Joystiq web-site, reads.

Nintendo’s E3 media briefing, where Nintendo plans to unveil the peculiarities of the code-named Revolution console, is scheduled for 9:30AM on the 9th of May, 2006. The even will be held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, California.

At the Game Developer Conference (GDC) 2005 Nintendo officially unveiled plans to launch its next-generation console code-named Revolution with IBM’s code-named Broadway processor and ATI’s code-named Hollywood visual processing unit. ATI and IBM also developed the core components for Nintendo’s GameCube console. The console will be backwards compatible with the currently shipped GameCube and will also feature trendy Wi-Fi features. It is unknown whether the console will feature any other wireless technologies apart from wireless networking.

Nintendo officially states that the code-named Revolution console will play all of Nintendo GameCube games, and deliver downloadable access to 20 years of fan-favorite titles originally released for Nintendo 64, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and even the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).
