    Nintendo development legend Shigeru Miyamoto has admitted that a successor to the Wii is in production.

    Speaking to Edge, the Mario creator was quizzed on Wii 2 and pressed for details.

    "Don't ask!" he said. "Even when the Wii launched we were developing new hardware, work on 3DS had already started. It's a matter of when we announce it."

    When asked if we can expect an announcement at E3 in June, Miyamoto said: "Please wait. Be patient until we decide."[/p]

    Well this has just won me over, I believe the wii successor may well be on its way. [​IMG]

    That's not admitting anything. He's saying "Wait until we decide whether it's god enough to show at E3" this year...

    No date either, so it's nothing new/unexpected.

    lol, as Miyamoto said multiple times, as a video console and games company, Nintendo is researching and developing new hardware all the time. Nothing special about that.

    errr he didn't exactly say no nor said no comment. Instead goes on to say please wait when questioned. If that isn't hinting at a wii 2 then I don't know what is. With all those rumours going around I couldn't take their word for it but now seeing this speach makes me think otherwise.

    It's obvious Nintendo was working on something....

    It's not like they're just going to drop out of the console wars when they're making so much money.

    nintendo really like to keep their cards to their chest and i think with the leaked news, it wont affect them cuz the ps4 or xbox720 (ha!) will be coming out not before 2014

    I love how Nintendo has told Miyamoto to stop talking about stuff and whatnot, yet everybody tries to squeeze shit out of him. This doesn't confirm anything. He's in no position to even talk about the Wii2.

    And besides, anybody who doesn't think it's coming relatively soon is wrong. Every company always starts planning for their next console months after their newest console just launched.

    ...what are you expecting to hear on E3? That Nintendo officialy ceases any involvement in video games and shall now move on to buying all the gold there is on the world and re-building the Atlantis from scratch?

    Of course they worked on a new console. Every company in the whole wide world researches and develops next gens right after or even before current gens are released.

    Actually if they did rebuild Atlantis I doubt anyone would complain...and wii 2 is pretty much confirmed....but some of the rumors are false

    It is not newsworthy that Nintendo is planning a successor console to the Wii. It is as equally as absurd to say it is newsworthy that Nintendo will make another console after the successor to the Wii.

    It is not newsworthy that a new Nintendo console would come out six years after the Wii. That would be six years which is the norm.

    News? What news? There is no news here. Most of this is old information.
