Nintendo Will Launch Next-Gen System in 2012

Nintendo Wii

After a week of rumors about Nintendo announcing a successor to the Wii, the house that Mario built has confirmed the news.  The official announcement will be made at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles.

According to 1UP, the unnamed system will be revealed at E3, which takes place June 7-9 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and will be playable for attendees to try.  Unofficially code-named “Project Cafe”, the console will reportedly be more powerful than the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, and include a controller with an HD screen and other features. However, nothing about Project Cafe’s features have been confirmed by Nintendo.

With E3 a little over a month away, Nintendo fanboys won’t have to wait long for more info on the new system. It will be interesting to see if this will force the hands of Sony and Microsoft to unveil their next-gen plans.

Are you looking forward to a new Nintendo console, or do you expect more out of the Wii? Sound off below. No flame wars please.
