Yoshio Sakamoto, co-creator of the Metroid franchise and current executive producer of the WarioWare series and Metroid: Other M, amongst others, recently spoke with Spanish videogame site 3DJuegos. During that interview he gave a vague hint that the successor to the Wii will be unlike anything we’ve yet seen in the gaming market.
Mr. Sakamoto was instructed by Satoru Iwata to avoid revealing any specific details so as to keep the project under wraps from competitors, however it would appear that this new console will be equally revolutionary as the Wii, but in a different fashion.
But how so? We won’t find out until much further into development, of course, but hit the jump to read what Mr. Sakamoto had to say.
“At Nintendo, we always have the obligation to surprise users with each new console. We have never simply followed our competition. We prefer to create something new that catches your attention, and I think this will continue at this time. The new Nintendo console will leave you all with your mouth open.”
What this could possibly mean is fuel for our daydreams, and we want to know what you think.
