Nintendo have stated that a Wii U successor will only come after fans who own the current console are satisfied.
Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata has confirmed in a investor Q&A that work on the Wii U successor has already begun and has also stated that they have a clear idea what it will be like.
Once we launch a new platform, we naturally start to prepare for the next one. As it takes several years to develop a single platform, if you ask us whether we are preparing for our next system, then the correct response will be that we are always developing new hardware, I of course believe that launching new hardware will not produce good results unless we first make sure that those who have already purchased our platforms are satisfied.
We will continue to work hard to ensure that consumers who already own our platforms are satisfied, and make sure that people will continue to see great value in our software, but I would like to say that we are preparing for our next hardware system, and in fact, we already have a clear idea to some extent about the direction our next hardware is going to take.
The Wii U has been available since November 2012 and has sold 6.1 million units. Do you think that Nintendo should release a new console soon? Let us know via the comment section below.
