Today in Japan, Nintendo confirmed the Wii's successor. The still unnamed console will be revealed at this year's E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles this June.
There will also be a playable version of the console at E3 as well as more details about the machine.
The new console will go on sale in 2012, said Nintendo in an official statement.
This console, believed to be code-named "Project Cafe", is rumoured to be a powerful console, boasting bigger and badder specifications than either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. It's also suspected of using a novel controller interface which marries a traditional d-pad-and-buttons scheme with a large touch-screen input.
