Nintendo has released a bunch of screenshots on its Japanese site, showing off many of Wii U’s social features. There’s lots of screenshots showing how Miiverse works, how the new Wii U Chat works, screenshots of the browser, and more. The Wii U launches in just a few days, and most of these features will be available via a day-one download from Nintendo.

    Wow, i think Nintendo will grab everybody’s attention with wii u.

    • Kahhhhyle

      Too many people still don’t know about its existence. Even with their marketing campaign. I think that’ll be their biggest hurdle though I bet word of mouth at lunch will help them immensely

      • Kyron

        “…word of mouth at lunch” lol

      • Cugno the Swiss

        You shouldn’t talk while you eat.

      • Kahhhhyle

        lol launch. DYAC

    • NintendoWizard

      Definitely. The Wii U will be a monster of a console and you guys in the USA only have 2 more sleeps until you get yours! So jealous right now… We Brits have got another 15 days until our launch and I can’t frickin’ wait!!! The Wii U won’t fail to grab attention from all gamers around the world, whether they invest in one or not all depends on their own personal ‘fanboyisms’. All the haters out there can GTFO. They’re the ones who will be missing out on one of the greatest consoles ever made. I don’t know about you guys, but I’d rather spend £300 on an awesome new Nintendo console now than spend £500+ on a PS4/720. No doubt they will be powerful, but fun? Time will tell… The Wii U however is right around the corner and the selection of launch games is beyond EPIC!!! My body is 1000% ready!!!!!! BRING ON THE WII U!!!!!!

        Oh my god, Sunday is almost here!!!!

        I can’t believe the wait is almost over. It seemed like yesterday we had all just plunked down our money for a preorder. 2 months just flew by.

        Cannot wait to boot up ZombiU…

      • Linskarmo

        I’m in the U.S., and I have to wait till Christmas… 🙁

  • Maverick-Hunter

    • 343 H4K0R

      I went to be games and the didn’t have theirs set up T-T

    • Hibill18

      Lucky! I went to Target to try it, but they didn’t have any games to play. They only showed game trailers and let you hold the gamepad.

  • The Detonator

    nintedomoniation! how can this get much better?

  • NintendoMan :D

    Is that the original Wii Channel format?

    • Nintedward

      That is a picture of the Wii menu with the Wiiu transfer app.

  • Nintendude

    Screw Twitter! I’m going with Miiverse!

    • Nintedward

      Miivers>>>>Swapnote>>>>Facebook>>>Twitter>>>other crap.

      • CaptainIcy

        Lawl you can’t make a comparison of Twitter to Swapnote or even Twitter to Facebook. Miiverse? Maybe. Apples to oranges.

        • Nintedward

          Well yeh, but still 😛

            So far and if it works.
            For me it will be useless because anyway none of my friend will buy the wii U.
            We are used to, that everyone buys another console, so everything is playable.

            PC will stay our online-social-platform, and more than one does not work.

          • ncv144

            nice gamecube pic, i have the same black one with one controller, but gettin deluxe wii u so the cube’s use will be minimal after that.

  • TheUNation

    The Wii U is the most versatile and innovative console that does everything– Gaming, social gaming, and entertainment!

    • ReasonWhy1796

      So far…..

      • Montrhuntr

        Well of course. You cannot compare current technology to possible future developments, the possibility’s would be endless lol.

  • JumpMan

    what’s up w/ the Wii Menu? i saw the Wii U menu in a screen-shot and that’s not it!!!!!!

    • CRT_hater777

      It’s the Wii menu with a Wii U transfer app downloaded

    • The Detonator

      its the menu to show how you transfer data from the wii to wii u

  • Dronch

    I nearly cried when i saw wii u on the wii menu, but then i realized it was a wii to wii u transfer channel

  • smashninja22

    Read Nintendo comment up here ^^^^^ (5 comments up)

  • WiiUlover

    Do u have to pause a game then hit the home button, or u just hit the home button and it pauses it.

    P.s to go into miiverse

    • TheUNation

      You have to press the Home button to pause the game.

    • Superrty

      I dont know. In the nintendo direct it showed the guy just click the home menu. That would be awesome if you could just quit a game during a level because with my wii i constantly have to leave it on because i cant save it

  • Nintendo Power (Wii U FTW)

    OMG its so near. Getting the Basic Pack. (So its 8 GB, Big Whoop)

    • Dan

      Gud thing external hard drive is cheap now:) i plan on loading up games on it for bedtime gaming ;)))

  • Diego

  • Rage quit

    I love it

  • TheImaj

    50 hours left!!!!!!

    • WarioForever

      Only… umm… (do the math)… 315 hours left for Europe’s Launch day!!! (not sarcastic).

  • VezNetwork

    Looks good 🙂

  • Zelda fan#2

    I’m still a little confused. Is the warawara plaza while the menu is shown on the gamepad screen?

    • Zelda fan#2

      Is the warawara plaza shown on tv I meant.

      • NintendoMan :D

        WaraWara Plaza is on the TV while the block style menu is on the GamePad. You can flip the two though.

  • Mr. Pennis

    Looks awesome. I think the WiiU runs in a Wii mode for backward gameplay. I wonder if that is the interface we’ll see when we launch that mode.

  • JohnWiiU

    Hey the nintendo WiiU has new screenshots on the nintendo site
    Plz put a tanks to João Pedro

  • Arsonist Monkey

    Happy Birthday, Shigsy!

  • Applesaucejaxon

    I like it! And since I JUST got the email that my system shipped, I know I’ll get to see it in person real soon! My pro controller came today, and I have Assassins Creed 3 already, so I already sense that ill be messing with the controller while staring at the game box a bit this weekend.
    Not overtly sexually…

  • FadedKamui
