Miyamoto Hints At Wii 2, Wii HD

Gaming god also suggests that Star Fox may be blasting his way onto Wii

See that smoke on the horizon, son? That's the rumour mill starting.

The gaming public notoriously gets its hopes up when Miyamoto opens his mouth: it gives us permission to dream once more, like kids on Christmas Eve. Only a fool would think that Nintendo isn't working on their follow-up to the Wii, but a high-definition console? One utterance from the big guy and it becomes a possibility. Not to mention his answering a question about a beloved franchise with anything other than a laughing "we'll see." According to an interview with GamesTM:

Technology is always evolving and Nintendo, just like other companies, is going to integrate those technologies into our new products as they develop. Whether that be a Wii HD, Wii 2 or an entirely new console, I am not in a position to say at the moment. I think that in the next generation of hardware, the challenge is how unique and different a product Nintendo is able to make.

Additionally, Miyamoto said that he shares GamesTM's desire for a Wii Star Fox outing, which vibes with an earlier comment he made to Famitsu regarding controlling the Arwing with a Wii Remote.

All of this is quite cryptic but no small potatoes after months of nothing but Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M. It's not that these efforts are anything to sneeze at, but when Miyamoto adds a little extra fuel to the rumour mill, we can all feel the warmth.
