Miyamoto tells us to “be patient” with the Wii 2 reveal

Shigeru Miyamoto

Admit it, Miyamoto: we all know what you're up to.

In an interview earlier today, Shigeru Miyamoto was naturally quizzed about the Wii’s successor. He pretty much confirmed that it was on its way, telling us to “be patient” while he and Nintendo decided when they would announce it. Here’s the full quote from EDGE Magazine:

Speaking at a behind closed doors event in London today, the Nintendo legend was inevitably quizzed about the rumoured Wii successor, which we first reported on late last week.

“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.”

Pressed on whether we can expect an announcement at E3 in June, Miyamoto said: “Please wait. Be patient until we decide.”

In a separate interview, he later acknowledged the Project Café codename, telling us that he read the rumours about it and that “it’s normal” for speculation about their next console to arise. “You know, for Nintendo, as with the other platform holders, our job is to create new hardware,” he said.
