Wii U is Nintendo's sixth entry in the console gaming industry. There isn't enough hype for the Wii U on these forums, so my hope is that this thread will buid the hype up for the Wii U. The device has a huge variety of games that range from known console IPs such as Pikmin, Assassin's Creed, and Mario to NEW IPs such as NintendoLand, ZombiU, and Project Cars. The important thing to understand here is that many of the new console IPs have been built ground up to take full advantage of the Wii U' s capabilities. SO THESE ARE EXPERIENCES YOU CAN NOT FIND ANYWHERE ELSE! NOT EVEN ON THE VITA/PS3!!! OR ON XBOX SMARTGLASS!!!!!!


Wii U Specs


  • Video Output supports 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i. Compatible cables include HDMI, Component, S-Video, and Composite

The Controller

"You can hold vertically or horizontally and mostly use the touchscreen. And here around the bottom of the screen it has the same layout as the Nintendo 3DS so you're able to go to the Home Menu with the press of a button. It also has two analog  Circle Pads. You can come up with many ways to play." -Shigeru Miyamoto, Iwata Asks: WIi U

Wii U Controller hands on


The Wii U has a decent library of games. Here is a small sample of some of the games on the system:

Sonic Lost World

Donkey Kong Country:Tropical Freeze

Lego City Undercover

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag





  • User accounts: Wii U will have individual user accounts, rather than one system-wide account, better late than never. 
  • Friend tracking: Miyamoto: Being able to go online, and perhaps see what game your frend is playing.
  • NFC: Near Field Communication ("touch" data transmission from accessories, credit cards, etc... sort of like QR/Streetpass combined) will be built-in.
  • Online: Miyamoto: "Network has to have a totally new concept to be different."
  • Third parties: Several new, previously unconsidered alliances/partnerships with third parties.
  • Communities: You haven't seen the last of them!
  • Retail title downloads: 3DS and Wii U both support digital download of retail titles.
  • Item billing: "We should not decline third parties if they want to offer item billing" (paying to unlock content).
  • DLC: Still planning to offer DLC (possibly talking about their own software), but needs more time to complete its feasibility study on the market and its needs.
  • More sharing: "Digital will include user to user communications, competition and sharing"
  • Better-paced software + DLC: Nintendo has learnt that it shouldn't have stagnant periods between software launches: can fill the gap, and DLC can extend the life of a title. 
  • Miiverse: This is the main interface of the Wii U. It shows what games are popular at the moment. 
  • Video Chatting: self explainatory

I would like to thank M.U.G.E.N., and your local mod MontanaHatchet for approving this thread!! More suff to be added soon!!!

This might be the first console I've gotten since the PS2.

Love and tolerate.

I think we can now safely say the Assassin's Creed game is AC3, which was just announced.

Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

Who knows, when you mix third parties and Nintendo most of the time you get odd results.
