Nintendo game designer (and co-creator of Metroid) Yoshio Sakamoto is hyping up Nintendo's next console—even if it could be another eight years away. "At Nintendo we always have the obligation to surprise users with a new game console."

Sakamoto spoke to the 3D Juegos website about the upcoming console, saying that they "have never done what others have. We prefer to create something new that catches attention, and I think this will continue this time as well." If he's referring to a 3D console, eight years' time could be far too late for that.
