Nintendo confirms new console

Project Cafe

Rumors have been circulating the internet for the past week-and-a-half regarding Nintendo’s new console, codenamed Project Cafe. After giving the company line of not commenting on rumors and speculation, Nintendo has now confirmed the recent reports.

The Wii’s successor will be released in 2012, and Nintendo went on to say in a statement, "We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011, in Los Angeles." The company did not comment on any of the recently reported details.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata expressed his company’s efforts to innovate videogame consoles and how 3D plays into that.

"We would like to propose a new approach to home video game consoles," he said. "It’s difficult to make 3-D images a key feature, because 3-D televisions haven’t obtained wide acceptance yet."

Nintendo made a big showing at last year’s E3 with the 3DS, and it looks like the company will likely top that with their reveal of Project Cafe at E3 2011. It should be interesting to see what Nintendo’s planning for the next-generation console.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
