Although the DS's successor is getting the 3D treatment and Nintendo has previous said that it is at least interested in doing a 3D console, Nintendo figurehead Shigeru Miyamoto said not to count on it in the next version of the Wii.
In an interview with German magazine Spiegel (via Electronista), Miyamoto said there it doesn't make sense to invest in 3D technology because 3D TV is not likely to be a major part of the market for several years.

The stance is nearly identical to Nintendo's decision not to make the Wii available in HD. Four years later, the console really seems outdated because of that. 3D may be a different story, though, because there are problems such as the need to wear glasses and some people with eye difficulties cannot perceive 3D images.

The 3DS is also a different animal, because its 3D technology is proprietary and does not require the use of any additional hardware or peripherals.
