The Wii U is an upcoming console from Nintendo, and the successor to the Wii.

It is set to release in North America on Sunday, November 18th.


The Wii U GamePad is a brand new controller created exclusively for the console. It has a touchscreen built right into the face of it, which can be used for multiple purposes. The touchscreen can be used to supplement the on-TV gameplay, or it can be used to replicate the action on the television so that someone else can watch television while you play.

The controller also comes equipped with an accelerometer, gyroscope, camera, dual analog sticks, a built-in sensor bar, a built-in microphone, and near field communication.
