What's reported to be a Project Cafe concept image

Its E3 week, and many Train2Game students will have their eyes glued to the various presentations and conferences that’ll be happening throughout this week.

Nintendo’s big keynote isn’t happening until tomorrow, but already rumours suggest that the Nintendo Wii’s successor – known currently as Project Café – will feature a new type of controller with a touch screen.

That’s what a report in Japanese mainstream newspaper Nikkei details according to a translation by Andriasang.

It suggests that the next Nintendo console will feature a six inch touch screen for the controller which can not only be used to control games, but also used as a handheld separate from the console.

The controller also reportedly features a camera that can be used for in-game functions and rechargeable batteries. Nikkei say the next Nintendo Console will be released in mid 2012.

Many Train2Game students will no doubt be tuning into the presentation tomorrow to see what’s going to be revealed!

But first there’s the Microsoft presentation, which starts this afternoon.

What are your thoughts on the report? Will you be watching the Nintendo conference? What do you want from their next console?
