Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata admitted during a press conference in Japan, that the current hardware of the Wii has lost the power to surprise people, and hence the need for a new console.

“It became difficult for developers to surprise customers with the current Wii,” he said, according to Andriasang.

During the conference, Iwata also dropped a launch window for the next Wii, saying that the new console must only be expected after its current fiscal year ends, which is April 2012.

The next big thing from Nintendo will be revealed at E3 this year. June 7 can’t come soon enough!
