New hardware in the works, Miyamoto confirms

Reconfirming what president Satoru Iwata said a few weeks ago, Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that Nintendo does indeed have new hardware in the works. The news came as the Mario man was speaking at the 13th Annual Japan Media Arts Festival over the weekend.

Late last month Iwata said that Nintendo engineers are developing new hardware, which was followed up last week by a rumor about Nintendo possibly unveiling a new platform at the Game Developers Conference next month — a thought perhaps best digested with recent quotes from Nintendo’s top men about the next Wii ‘needing something new‘ and that it can’t be ‘just an HD upgrade‘.

During his talk, Miyamoto also mentioned that he’s working on a brand new Wii MotionPlus game.
