Nintendo Direct Wii U Summary Released by NoA

We sure did, Iwata-san


WaraWara Plaza and Wii U Chat prominent

With this morning's Nintendo Direct broadcast, there was a lot to digest, translate and understand about Miiverse and other Wii U system details. Nintendo of America has kindly put together a short summary video to highlight the key features, and provide a slightly more detailed look at the console's UI (user interface).

Hosted by Bill Trinan, this video focuses on WaraWara Plaza and Wii U chat, with updated footage of the former to give a better idea of how it'll look in English. Some footage is recycled with Trinen narrating, including a look at the 3DS-style menu that will be on the GamePad when the system is turned on, though the menu and WaraWara Plaza can be switched between screens. This video doesn't cover the in-game Miiverse functionality, but it's possible that Nintendo of America will film all-new footage to show that side of the system.

We've summarised most of the important information on the site already, but check out the video below and let us know what you think.

WaraWara Plaza looks good!
Unfortunately, to me OS looks simple and too 3DS-ish. I was expecting something in line more with the Wii than the 3DS.

Nice video!

And Reggie chatting with Iwata in japanese will go down the History books.

Oh my! I can't wait to video chat with D21!

Wait don't you have to download Miiverse?

WiiU is gonna rock so hard!!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Nice little recap! Still bursting in laughter about Reggie trying to speak japanese with that accent... lol
