The successor to Nintendo's Wii console may arrive sooner than you think.

The platform holder’s president Satoru Iwata has admitted that the firm is hard at work on a follow-up to the all-conquering, motion-sensor-controlled system.

However, Iwata added that current designs having to "be thoroughly vetted" before being ready for market.

He told The Wall Street Journal:

“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.

“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.”
