Speaking to the BBC, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has made first mention of life after Wii, although he’s been sure to point out that there’s no timetable for dropping the motion-sensing smash hit.

“However hard our software developers try to create new and unprecedented titles with great ideas eventually there will be a day when devs will say they have no more means with that hardware.

“That’s exactly the time we need to introduce people to new hardware. We do want to be flexible about this,” he said.

“We just don’t want to decide upon a fixed lifecycle of any platform.”
