We are just minutes away from the last of the ig three's conferences! Join us as Nintendo takes the stage!
Things kick off with Miyamoto taking the stage and showing Pikmin popping up everywhere! Cute.
The Wii launched six years ago. A year later, they started thinking about the next system. They wanted to make one that was not dependant on the TV. That was the start of Wii U.
The Wii U has the first dedicated screen for any game system.
You don't need to wait for the TV to play your games.
Now we get Pikmin 3. The resolution of the Wii U allows for more detail on the Pikmin and the environment.
The basic controlls use the Wii Motion Plus and the Nunchuck.
If you use the Wii U Gamepad, you will have a full map, allowing you to place your Pikmin more effectively.
It makes the game more tactical. You can use four leaders now, and the map makes this easier to control. Olimar is not there, but why is a secret.
After each level, you can watch a full replay of the level. Games like his are a challenge because of the overall shift to casual games.
Is your body ready? REGGIE is here!
Reggie says this presentation is all about the games... they will be showing off 23 Wii U titles today.
Wii U does three things: changes the gaming, how you interact with your gaming friends, and how you interact with your TV.
It includes Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Amazon Video, and more. But you will hear more about that in the future. Now, it's about the games.
Talking about the Wii U Nintendo Direct from Sunday, and showing off a Black Wii U on the screen.
Nintendo has a new disruption... Asymmetric gameplay.
It's official! Two Wii U Gamepads!
Showing off the Gamepad now: D-Pad, two shoulder buttins, ABXY buttons, Rumble, headphone jack and volume control, and two clickable analog sticks.
The new OS is MiiVerse. How you connect with your game friends. Think of it as Main Street. There are tiles, and the Miis gather around them. It shows what you play, and what the world is playing.
You can also send messages, drawings, and screen-grabs from whatever game you are playing.
MiiVerse coming to 3DS and mobile phones.
First up, New Super Mario Bros. U. In the game map, you can see what your friends are saying about each level.
