Nintendo doesn't need to work on a successor to the Wii right now, company CEO Satoru Iwata has said.
Speaking in an interview with the Beeb, Iwata reiterated that the platform holder won't launch its next console until it's "run out of ideas" for its current hardware, though he admitted that Wii 2 is already in development.
Last week the Nintendo boss told Japanese newspaper, Nihon Keizai Shimbun that Wii 2 will "probably" be 3D.
He said: "Whenever we launch any new hardware, we start working on the development of the next hardware, and the Wii is no exception.
"When we run out of ideas with the current hardware and cannot give users any more meaningful surprises with the technology we have, that's when we will launch the new hardware.
"But do we need to launch a successor to Wii right now? I don't think so."
