Nintendo to announce Wii-U Details today at 3pmPDT

Post by igoMOTTZILLA on Sun Jun 03, 2012 3:48 pm

Nintendo is an event called Nintendo Direct to allow people to get a look at the concept of the new Wii-U. This is a little pre E3 coverage, as Nintendo does not hold theirs until Tuesday. Check it out here: http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo_direct

Wii-U Pro controller:


Wii-U Gamepad


Miiverse
The Miiverse is a catch-all term referring to the Wii U's social functions, as well as a Mii hub in the console.

Gamers will be able to text others (via a typical virtual keyboard interface or even hand-drawn notes via a stylus or your finger) on the Wii U GamePad while you're playing a game.

The Miiverse also manifests itself in a central plaza that appears when you turn on the Wii U. This plaza (which can be accessed while you're playing a game without having to quit out of it) is populated by Miis from the system itself, those of your friends, and those of people in your country and who speak your language. These Miis will congregate in real-time around icons of the games they are playing. You will also see speech bubbles above Miis' heads if they have a message.

Iwata said that all Wii U games will support Miiverse communication, and developers themselves are free to use the feature in any way they see fit. He also mentioned that Miiverse features don't require the use of the TV the system is hooked up to, and that they can be used in a single-player game.
