For the past week we've been bringing you Wii 2 rumours, but Shigeru Miyamoto has just all-but confirmed the console is in the works with a few well-chosen words spoken to Edge.

The respected magazine pressed Mario's creator about the upcoming console, to which Miyamoto replied:

Don’t ask! Even when the Wii launched we were developing new hardware, work on 3DS had already started. It’s a matter of when we announce it.

Nintendo will make the announcement at E3 though, right? Maybe not.

Please wait. Be patient until we decide.

Rumours abound that next week's investor meeting will mention some details of the new console. Stay tuned to Nintendo Life and we'll bring you all the relevant details.
