Nintendo working on Wii follow-up?

Company boss hints that the hardware team are already "working on it"

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has dropped a heavy hint that the company already has plans in place for the post-Wii era.

Speaking in an interview with the Wall Street Journal Iwata admitted that the hardware team had already begun work, although he wouldn't be drawn on details.

"The hardware team started work on the next thing as soon as they were done with their previous project, but what they think up doesn't necessarily become a product," he said.

"We only turn something into a product after it's been thoroughly vetted inside the company. We're not at a point where we can give specifics, but of course we're working on it."
