With the Nintendo Wii U set for launch later this year, Mario creator Miyamoto has revealed Nintendo is already working on the 3DS replacement

 

Despite being just over a year old, Nintendo has confirmed that it has already started planning its successor to its current Nintendo 3DS portable gaming powerhouse.

Although offering little other than a tantalising glimpse into the futuristic plans of the gaming giant, Nintendo’s famed Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed the Japanese tech giant is already putting into motion ideas to follow on from its 3DS handheld.

"What we're thinking about right now is probably going to be for a future generation of handheld," Miyamoto said when questioned on recent rumours of an upcoming Nintendo 3DS XL release with a second analogue Circle Pad inbuilt.

Far form the end of the 3DS, a console that was plagued by health scares following its official release last year, Miyamoto has suggested there is still a lot to come from the Sony PS Vita rival stating: "I really feel like I'm satisfied with the 3DS hardware as it is. I feel like it's the best for this generation."

Have you already snapped up a Nintendo 3DS or are you unimpressed by the 3D abilities and holding out for the next-generation console? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
