Nintendo Wii U Dated to Release after E3 2012

“Project Cafe” is the codename for Nintendo Wii U before Nintendo revealed it in E3 2011 a few months ago. There are a lot of innovation in this upcoming home console by Nintendo. It is more than only the high definition version of Wii. It is Nintendo’s sixth home console that belongs in the eighth generation of gaming console.

Wii U will give you more than 1080p HD graphics. The console has backward compatibility with either Nintendo Wii games and peripherals. So, you can still use your WiiMotes, Nunchuks, Wii Balance Board, or even the Pro Classic Controller. Nintendo still hasn’t said that you can use your Nintendo 3DS for the controller, but they say that they are still doing research on it. And you can connect up to 4 controllers at a time. But, that was the least amazing things. The key feature lies in the brand new handheld-console-like controller that comes with the home console.

The controller has a brand new design with similarities with Nintendo 3DS. It has an accelerometer, gyroscope, camera at the frontside, microphone, and motion sensor. It has the usual input buttons like the directional pad and the circle pad. What’s more, the controller is not only for gaming, but it has the ability to do certain things like video chat, internet browsing, and even drawing manga! It is possible because the controller has a built-in 6.2 inch touchscreen and microphone! The touchscreen holds the most important feature for the controller. The screen can show additional information of the game or replicate the image shown at the monitor/TV. Maybe you can hack monsters in the TV and see your inventory from the controller’s touchscreen. You can even play the game when the monitor or the TV is off because you can use the screen on the controller instead! Nintendo Wii U controller also has a 3.5mm jack for audio devices. But it is still unknown whether it has its own memory card slot or it shares with Nintendo Wii U hard drive. That would be awesome! I think, Nintendo Wii U is like a combination of handheld console and home console that brings a totally new experience in gaming.
