Today in Japan, Nintendo confirmed the upcoming release of the Wii’s successor. The still-unnamed console will be revealed at this year’s E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles in June.  The new console will go on sale in 2012, said Nintendo in an official statement.


According to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, “We would like to propose a new approach to home video game consoles.” But don’t look for that to include 3D. The Wii successor is also suspected of using a novel controller interface which marries a traditional d-pad-and-buttons scheme with a large touch-screen input. Kotaku also reported that while the new console will feature a new controller, it will also support Wii Remote-style controllers.
