“Did I do it again? Did I let something slip?! I just get so excited!”

As the recipient of a “Special Achievement Prize” during a symposium at the 13th Annual Japan Media Arts Festival on Saturday, Shigeru “loose lips” Miyamoto had time to spill two tidbits of information while up on stage. Not only has Miyamoto confirmed that Nintendo is working on some new hardware, but he mentioned that he is hard at work on a Wii MotionPlus game other than the upcoming Zelda title.

Let’s face it, the fact that Nintendo is working on some new hardware doesn’t require a crystal ball, or even a fortune cookie, to figure out. Nintendo has likely been working on hardware to replace both the Wii and DS since their respective launches (see: DS Lite, DSi, DSi XL). But do the amount of rumors building up as of late point to an imminent hardware announcement? That was definitely the case for that thing that Apple is making.
