Game Informer has heard from multiple sources that Nintendo are set to announce a new console prior to or at E3.

The console is apparently going to be released towards the end of 2012 (let’s hope the world hasn’t ended by then) and will unsurprisingly finally enter the HD generation, whilst according to IGN it’s significantly more powerful than both the Xbox 360 and PS3 and will be backwards compatible with the Wii. CVG on the other hand report that it will use a new controller and will feature a built in HD screen, possibly with touch support.

This year’s E3 should be very exciting indeed.
