Here it is! Nintendo’s new system, the Wii U. The main feature of this new console is the tablet like controller as seen in the screenshot below. It promises new High Definition graphics far superior to Wii.
The controller has a single-touch screen, stylus support, rumble support, microphone, accelerometer, and gyro scope.
One great feature about this console is how you can continue playing games even when the TV is off, including when someone wants to watch something else, like Baseball, as suggested in the screenshot above. The Wii U console transmits wirelessly to the Wii U controller. But it doesn’t work like Wifi where you can just carry it anywhere, you need to be within adequate range of the console.
You can share photos and videos you find online, or enjoy video chat on the Wii U controller. You can video chat even if you are watching something else on the TV.
Smash Brothers has also been announced for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. It appears there will be some sort of connectivity between the two platforms but details are scarce.
According to a Gametrailers interview, Reggie Fils-Aime states the Nintendo Wii U will use proprietary optical media. He wouldn’t specify the exact capacity, nor if it would be comparable to a Blue Ray Disc. But he did say it would have enough space to hold HD graphics. As for online features , it will have all of the type of capabilities already in Xbox Live, and Playstation Network. However, Nintendo doesn’t want a rigid closed system like those services, they are looking into a flexible online service.
Nintendo Wii U is also backwards compatible with WIi controllers. Obviously those with the Wii U controller will have an unfair advantage.
In this example, the Wii controller is used to hit the golf ball on Wii U
Tekken, Batman Arkham Asylum, Ninja Gaiden 3 are all coming to Wii U. In this screenshot above, you could use the controller to add tattoos or face paint and apply it to a Tekken character.
