            WoooOo. Shouldn’t you be with your parents begging for 500$ for the ps4? Your the kind of kid that calls the gamepad a gimmick even though the ps4’s super amazing controller has a mood changing light on its rear. Lol aint that cool?

          • Rinslowe

            Lol, that shouldn’t even be legal… At least not to minors. And for the love of Thor almighty it better come with a decent cleaning kit cause I got a flat full of uni chicks…

          • Only a few are true gamers

            Yes i am and trust me sonydrone i was gaming long before your born and like ive told other trolls before you Your no true gamer if you were you would have a wii u and game on it as well but like most drones like yourself your stuck to one lame console ..I own all of them and i play than on the best of tvs now you can come here and cry like you always do or you can get with the program but you won’t…Faggots trolls always stay to only one console

          • Casey

            fag trolls stick to one console? yaaaa no. also get off ur high horse, noone cares about your self entitled gamer status.

          • Only a few are true gamers

            You must care or you would have not commented so like i tell trolls like yourself..and please don’t cry like a baby but your not a real gamer and that’s facts sorry now go back to your gaystation3 and play your worthless COD till your brains fry

          • Goldenknighttim

            There is nothing wrong with staying with only one console. I use to do that because I didn’t have the money to be spending on multiple consoles. With the new generation coming out, I got a Wii U, and don’t plan on buying a ps4 for a while. The problem isn’t that people buy only one console, its that they hate others who play a console that they don’t. There is also the matter of taste. Some people, like me, don’t like a system for good reasons. I don’t like the XBox because most of their exclusive games are shooters(which i think are boring) and I don’t like the awkwardness of the controller(asymetrical control stick setup.) But I don’t think anyone should really be looking down on anyone who has different gaming preferences.

          • I think he meant sticking to the same company every gen
            when you havent tried others.
            something like that.

          • i would get more consoles but alas, i am a minor with a poor family, i like all consoles but i only have a wii u.

          • Only a few are true gamers

            Nothing wrong with being poor and wii u the better console anyways

          • Teem Four Tress Too

            Yeah screw ps4, the hardware may be nice, but the games is where its at. I also wouldn’t want to be paying at least 400 bucks

          • Lawrence Murray

            and the ps4 has plenty of games announced already with plenty more to come. And yes the wii u will have games soon. Poor xbox with NO games.

          • Squid

            Darn, I accidentally thumbed down. 🙁 but I do agree, Microsoft has no games.

          • Only a few are true gamers

            I like my wii u but im thinking of getting them all at one point but like most console releases the other two consoles won’t have alot of games at first

          • mikel334u2

            The PS4 has a semi-decent line-up so far. If you’re a Nintendo gamer, you’re probably gonna like a game like Knack. As you can see, I’m pretty optimistic about the system since, if given decent 1st-party support, 3rd-party support, and a lot of indie support, which it does so far, the games shown were just showing off its potential and many more will come. Also, $400 isn’t that much compared to the Wii U’s $350 price tag (Almost everyone got a Deluxe Wii U.). Spending $50 more for better hardware comparable to decent budget PCs; a great 1st-party, 3rd-party, and indie library with a great variety of games; a fast and convenient UI and online network; and more seems very worth its price. In fact, I’ll be shocked if it’s $400 because that’s a pretty affordable price point. The only advantages the Wii U has is its (resistive) touch screen on its controller and great console exclusives, which are lacking at the moment. I’m not trying to convince you to get a PS4 over a Wii U; I love Nintendo and my Wii U. I just think that Nintendo needs to prove why people need the Wii U over the PS4/720, and NSMB.U and MH3U won’t do that. If they don’t, then I’ll probably do most of my gaming on some other system and only get the great Nintendo console exclusives for the Wii U like for the Wii.

          • I agree i hope sony do well.
            i may be a nintendo fan but thats not to say i dont care about the big 3.

          • Rinslowe

            Screw who and whatever you want mate, but shouldn’t you at least tell the 720 first…? Sorry stupid question, on the low is the way to go….

          • Only a few are true gamers

            Im someone who plays what he wants and i have desided to buy all of them at some point and buy what games i want for each but wii u will always come first and screw people who hate what i think. It’s my money and will do what i want with it

          • Rinslowe

            Lol, fair call.
            Actually I was just having some fun with the “screw” part…
            I also own all current systems and enjoy them all. Unfortunately haters gonna hate no matter what, so I choose to have fun with’em instead of taking them seriously.
            Not that I’m implying this is you, not at all. From what I can see we agree on the principles of gaming…

          • Only a few are true gamers

            Not a problem…I just love how some of these haters claim to be gamers and bash what is a gaming console…All they care about is there Cod rehash crap and so what if mario is rehashed..Mario beats anything the other consoles can dish out

          • ludist210

            This. I own a PS3, but it can’t play any of those games? I can’t trade in my PS3 to help offset the cost? Not buying one…not until a huge price drop anyways, and to be honest, I don’t need a new gaming system right now.

          • Only a few are true gamers

            Well wii u is worth it when you do and the ps3 can’t do 1080p..Wii U can

          • ludist210

            I already have a Wii U and nine retail games (three were gifts, one was $10 and one was $30). Should have clarified.

          • Only a few are true gamers

            Not a problem Going to get lego city next

          • Nathaniel Lopez

            Which PS3 are we talking about? The one I know can do 1080p besides it all depends on the game, so not all games will have 1080p.

          • Only a few are true gamers

            Not seen any so far that can do true 1080p That im aware of

          • Nathaniel Lopez

            Ah then yeah, most are 720p or are upscaled. Not many native 1080p.

          • JVAN63

            “the ps3 can’t do 1080p” – Yes, it can. I think whqt you meant to say is that there are a lot of games for PS3 that are 720p. Big difference. The PS3 has been 1080p capable since day 1. I’m not a fan of it personally, because only 1-2 games look interesting to me; but I did look at it for an additional blu-ray player last year (decided it wasn’t worth the extra $$ and fat case).

          • Ben Kapferer

            Why buy Xbox 720? Microsoft has paid online that is no better than its competitors (and where you have to pay the fee to use services you already pay for). The Xbox 360 also has had a huge history of hardware failure. Finally, most Xbox 360 games can be bought on different platforms now. Overall, I think 720 will need to be “screwed”, not PS4.

          • Only a few are true gamers

            Because i buy all the consoles just so i can have them even if used for a paper weight

    • Guest

      This April fools joke is kind of sad because it points out you can’t even connect 4 controllers 😛

      • BuckStud

        So what system are you talking about? The Wii U can have 5 controllers connected at once.

      • Tecpedz94

        I hope you all know that this was an old Nintendo direct and the person just put fake English subtitles. Iwata didn’t make a Nintendo direct just to make a April fools joke lol

      • Ibi Salmon

        By controllers, you mean gamepads, right?

        • brian murphy

          1 game pad and 4 wii motes for now later next year it will have games supporting 2 game pads

          • Fred

            It is my understanding that it supports 2 gamepads NOW, there just aren’t any games right now that would take advantage of a second gamepad so they aren’t selling them until there’s a game that will utilize it (mostly because they don’t want Wii owners buying a game pad and thinking they can now play Wii U games) has anyone here tried hooking up a second gamepad (had a friend or a neighbor bring one over to see if you could both have your gamepad with the screen going at the same time)?

          • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

            Or 1 Gamepad and 4 pro controllers

          • Ibi Salmon

            Do you have proof of that claim?

      • Nintedward

        Yeah. I play 5 player localy on my Wiiu on a regualar basis. What are you smokin 😛 .

        But yeah. 4 Gamepads streaming together with no latency would require something ridiculously powerfull.

    • Clearly the world does not give a damn. New IP is needed.

      • Nathaniel Lopez

        If people are awaiting games in a series…GTA, Bioshock, God of War, Halo, Gears, CoD, Saints Row, etc….why should Nintendo make new IPs? I mean yeah, they could, but it’s not needed apparently.

        • Because they won’t get most of those games?

          • Nathaniel Lopez

            We won’t get Mario Kart, Zelda, SSB U?

          • Another straw man argument that has nothing to do with my comments or the comment I replied to. This constant lying amongst Nintendo is why people don’t like them. We just don’t get this from the other two and we did not get it from Sega either.

          • Nathaniel Lopez

            What Nintendward said:

            “HAHAHAHAHAHA love it…. wooo..

            BRING ON THE HATE HATERS. Wiiu and Nintendo will be fine. You see dat

            lol. The console which has Zelda , Smash bros , Mario kart is bad ? lol no .”

            What you replied:

            “Clearly the world does not give a damn. New IP is needed.”


            Me replying to you:

            “If people are awaiting games in a series…GTA, Bioshock, God of War,
            Halo, Gears, CoD, Saints Row, etc….why should Nintendo make new IPs? I
            mean yeah, they could, but it’s not needed apparently.”


            You replying to what I said:

            “Because they won’t get most of those games?”


            Me replying to your retort:

            “We won’t get Mario Kart, Zelda, SSB U?”


            In conclusion:

            I figured that since we were commenting on Nintenward’s post about Zelda, SSB, and Mario Kart that we were talking about THOSE games, not the games I had listed as reference to why Nintendo has no need to make new IPs.

          • So you are going out of your way to prove that your were wrong? Pride is a mother…

          • Nathaniel Lopez

            No, I’m going out my way to prove I’m not a liar…if I was in the wrong I would admit to it. I have no reason to be prideful on the internet where no one would really care and arguably the same could be said about me proving I’m not a liar but I figured since you replied to my post, I should let you know that I wasn’t lying. Also, I’m not trying to make you out to be one as well.

            Just being trying to be civilized..

          • tronic307

            Enough about pride from someone who bashes Nintendo all day just to be the center of attention!

          • I don’t try to be the center of attention. Maybe you are mad because you are not. I stand out because I write the truth and Nintendo scrambles to send liars my way to try and shut me down, but when I break down the lies, they are left unarmed with nothing more than fake hype.

          • tronic307

            No one writes THE truth; beliefs are parallel, NOT singular, even in the cases where they seem to conflict. There are no ‘special’ frames of reference, only opinions based on individual experience. Absolutes are illusions of the simple mind.

          • I hear you, but when my vast topics I cover all share in truth, then they combine to for THE truth for everything that I write.

          • [000]

            You don’t stand out because you write the truth; You stand out because you have only EVER been negative about Nintendo, whether it be the truth or not. You only accept what you want to believe, whether it be the truth or not. If what you believed was the truth, then Nintendo wouldn’t still exist. You are not knowledgeable or truthful; You are unyieldingly biased. But of course, one might argue that everyone who’s ever commented on this site is biased. If that is the case though, then please, tell me, why are you here? You and I both know that no matter what you, or ANYONE else says, no one is going to change their mind. You are no less biased than anyone on this site, so please, don’t go around saying you “speak the truth” when that in itself is a lie.

          • You are angry because the truth hurts. People on this site are biased to the point of lying about everything, but I speak the truth. It just so happens that the truth does not support Nintendo. If Nintendo had created a serious system, I would have praised them for it. They started the lies by saying that the Wii U would be the real deal and for the hard-core, but then just when straight to baby world like they always do.

          • [000]

            You’re right, the truth hurts, which is why I’m not bothered by anything you say. You know you’re no less biased than the others on this site. You would praise Nintendo? Are you kidding me? You have never said anything positive about Nintendo.

            But that was beside my point. You’re biased, and so is everyone else, so there is no point in arguing here, because there is no outcome. Why don’t you just leave this site rather than pursuing an impossible goal?

          • If they had their shit together, I would praise them.

          • tronic307

            Really? What EXACTLY does Nintendo lie about? You have the floor.

          • “It’s not about graphics – it’s about the control!” “Game play is more important than graphics. No need for powerful systems.” “We are the only ones who make good games.” “Graphics don’t make the system – but the Wii U is more powerful than the 360 and the PS3!” “Graphics and power are nothing – but the Wii U has 2011 graphics and it’s GPGPU is unlike anything ever seen!” “It’s not a GPU – it’s a GPGPU! It makes the system much better.” “With a GPGPU, you don’t need fast CPUS.” “The Wii won this generation’s console war – it’s is a next generation console right?” “Wii U sales have increased – recently.” “Wii U is going to win this war in a few months!” “Nintendo will be focused on the hard-core gamers with the Wii U.” “What about Legos that is not hard-core? If it’s fun, it’s hard-core?” I could go on and on…

          • tronic307

            Those are your impressions, not promises unkept. Let’s suppose, hypothetically, that they said all those things. It would be their business how they carry those things out, not yours.
            Personally, if something didn’t meet my expectations, I would cut my losses, and not go all OCD about it. Please cite those quotes, because I could not get a single hit on Google.

          • I knew that would not be enough for you. Even a Nintendo press release would not be good enough.

          • tronic307

            You’re taking those sentiments literally. You have to look at what they really mean (not that Nintendo actually said ANY of this):
            “It’s not about graphics – it’s about the control!” “Game play is more important than graphics. No need for powerful systems.”

            Translation: “I’d rather play a good game with bad graphics than bad game with good graphics!”

            “We are the only ones who make good games.”

            Translation: “WARNING: If a Nintendo game scores an 8 or less on IGN, the internet may kerplode!”

            “It’s not a GPU – it’s a GPGPU! It makes the system much better.”

            Translation: “If you feel betrayed over pure marketing fluff, you need to take it down a notch. While we’re at it, why don’t we get bent out of shape over ‘blast processing’.”

            “The Wii won this generation’s console war – it’s is a next generation console right?”

            Translation: “100 million customers can’t be wrong!”

            “Nintendo will be focused on the hard-core gamers with the Wii U.”

            Translation: “At Nintendo, WE put the YOU in Wii U!”

            PROTIP: Truth in advertising is an oxymoron. You actually take this stuff seriously?

          • All of what you wrote translation: BS excuses from a junior publicist in training.

          • tronic307

            Meant to sound like OBVIOUS BS, which is why the point sailed right over your pointy head!

          • Guest

            You do realize that Nintendo didn’t say any of those things, right?

          • They said most of them and the others were made by their agents.

          • Guest

            Sources, please.

        • Saul Rivera

          Ha this is true though..you keep hearing others complain about Nintendo releasing another Mario and another Zelda and that’s why they suck blah blah blah..that they’ll remain with PS or Xbox….yet they keep releasing another GoW…another Gran Turismo…another Forza…another CoD…Assassin’s Creed…Fable…Little Big Planet..etc….

          Seems to me this new IP conversation applies to all systems…but they all know that what sells is a product already known worldwide and won’t take the risks…which we can’t fault them…we ask for new IP’s and when we get them we don’t buy them..especially if we’re people who take reviews to heart..”what a 7 out of 10?…I expected this game to be awesome…pftt won’t buy this crap” =_=

          I read all this stuff (especially the “our system is better than yours”) everyday and wonder when we gamers are going to mature…

    That actually made me chuckle haha 😀

    At the end he says thsnk you, not he’s deeply sorry

  • Only a few are true gamers

    Awesome joke that made my day

  • Adrian

    Ah, Good I hope this is a joke. If it was real I was going to be pissed. I didn’t buy a WiiU for a better nintendo system to come out a few months later!

  • Mickey Mouse

    Knew it was an April fool’s joke from the report title, not fooled in the slightest.

  • johan cervantes

    I was ready to sell my wii u

  • Steve

    So glad I didn’t buy a Wii u yet 🙂

    This looks so cool… XD

  • babulibaba

    reply what that stands for correctly and get a lolipop

  • Mark Thom


    • ps4ultimania

      i think they should make a power addon booster tho

  • hellomello123

    Ok lol that’s funny.

  • ps4ultimania

    HAHAHAHAHAHA ALL THEY DID WAS STRETCH THE WIIU but rly they should make a power booster addon

  • Tecpedz94

    I knew this was a joke the second i read the title…..lol

  • Silent

    Come on! People can do better than this. The obvious april fools day joke is obvious.

    • Only a few are true gamers

      it was a good video though…Do you have MH3 i think im going to buy it

  • GuardiansFan

    worst fake ever. Its actually VERY easy to replace the text above to say Super Wii U Preview instead of just Wii U


  • EvanescentHero

    Really? You posted an April Fools joke as actual news? That’s pretty pathetic.

    • Ravyu

      You must be REAL fun… This site is broken anyway, so nothing new

  • Levian VII

    The only way they could’ve topped that off is by including a fake trailer for Hylian’s Creed.

  • Chiwawa

    phew, im glad that was a joke. that super wii u looked UGLY! I think i’ll stick with my normal wii u.

  • Orange Lada

    Love it 🙂 Iwata has a sense of humour 🙂

    • dubYA

      This is a fan-made edit of an old broadcast, dude. No way Nintendo would actually make a video like this. if you have even a slight grasp of Japanese this becomes immediately obvious.

  • niiii

    Didn’t fall for it

  • NintendoNoob

    This scared me until I saw the Fake sign. I was like “GOD DAMN NOW I WANT A SUPER WI U!” XD

  • Squid

    I fell off my chair, I thought this was real. And I was like… Twitching…

  • If only this was the real Wii U

  • Joshua Heckstall

    if chinese ppl call the wii u a super wii wat will they call the super wii u super duper wii

    • Veries Seals

      um Joshua thats kind of offensive. You should not assume that everyone that appears asian is Chinese. He is Japanese, from Japan not China. You may want to be careful with that.

  • Although a joke, Nintendo is in trouble…

    • Nathaniel Lopez

      Not really MH boosted Wii U sales and Nintendo didn’t have to price cut…seems pretty good to me and more games are being released in the upcoming months. They just got to ride the storm out.

      • sithWiiU

        In the UK and France. Wait until the US sales to brag. The US is HUGE, and yeah, you know.

        • Nathaniel Lopez

          And Europe isn’t?

          UK and France is a prime territory for video game business. I think it’s okay to start bragging that sales have boosted past 100% regardless of the fact that sales have been rather slow.

        • We are waiting… When Nintendo releases their Epic titles that outsell most other video game publisher titles later this year Nintendo will see sales galore.

      • MH only did a LITTLE something in the UK and France, but it is still not enough to help. The storm will only get worse one MS introduces it’s next system, then GTA V!

    • Guest

      Nintendo is perfectly fine. Even if the Wii U had a chance of failing, Nintendo would still be fine. They have the resources to last without it. You really don’t think about things much, do you? It boggles my mind why you would give yourself such an unfitting name.

      • Jimmy D. Fugate

        Nintendo has deep, deep pockets. Sony’s the one walking on a tightrope this gen, cause they’re already in deep debt and one wrong move could send them in a downward spiral, but I hope that both the Wii U and PS4 do well this gen.

      • Nintendo is in trouble with the Wii U. Happy?

    • Financially all of Sony (not just the Playstation Division) is in way more trouble than Nintendo. Just sayin’

      • Nathaniel Lopez

        That’s really unfortunate…

      • I could give a fuck if SOny failed – but it won’t because they have way more to fall back on than Nintendo.

        • Jimmy D. Fugate


  • I’d much rather use my normal Wii U. Power solves nothing. Great fan made video.

  • Casey Kester

    You have got to be kidding me!!!! I have only had my wii u for only 5 months and then they come back with a way better wii u!!! You couldn’t have just released that when the wii u came out!!?

    • Jamel Frazier

      I think it’s an april fools joke. But it would be awesome if true.

      • Steve

        It might be. And if it is, I hope they were kidding about the design. I wouldn’t mind a more powerful Wii U. But that’s less likely happening.

        I guess just enjoy the joke and hope.

  • Casey Kester

    Oh wait it’s a April fools!! Haha never mind. Love you Nintendo. Sorry!! Haha I feel stupid.

    • Steve

      Lol, I believed it at first. Then they showed the picture. I’m like… Oh, haha. I get it.

      But don’t spoil it for everyone 🙂 just play along. Hahaha.

  • Wiiluigi

    Lmao! Omg that plopping noise Super Wii U made! I knew this was a joke. LOL!

  • Linskarmo

    One of the best April Fools’ Day jokes I’ve seen. Nice job.

  • LopsidedPasta


  • therealruben1

    i havent even watched the video and i could already tell its an april fools joke

  • and the wiiu does support unreal 4… you need to get your info correct before you post… http://wiiudaily.com/2013/04/epic-games-says-the-wii-u-can-run-unreal-4/ read here

  • There’s the April Fool’s joke I was waiting for!

  • Cadrion

    I gotta say, I have so much respect for Nintendo. Cracks me up that they’ve defended themselves via an april fools joke and railed all the criticism they’ve gotten. Everytime I pick up and play a bit of the Wii U, I just love it. Just finally got a few to play NSMBU and wow what a great feel….seems like 1, 3 and world all in one. Thanks Nintendo.

    Anyone who believed this for a nano second is a complete idiot lol.

  • MetroidZero

    When I saw the title, I was like: (O_O)

    When I saw the video I was like: “You so funny!”

  • Super Buu

    Oh Iwata, how much I love you.

  • dylanbob121

    well…they turned themselves over to power…not actually good games but,ya know,good luck big N

  • Nathan Abrahamson

    …am I the only one who thinks something like this is actually a good idea? Hear me out. In ~4 years when the Wii U’s hardware really starts showing it’s age, nintendo releases a performance enhancer similar to something like this-integration will be gradual, but will be fully implemented around the 6 year mark of the U. The consumer doesn’t have to buy the upgrade, keeping the console price cheep and easily accessible to the casual market, but core gamers will get to experience games the way they look on high end PCs, while still using the basic U console, and of course, the controller, while still having all the great nintendo 1st parties. It’s a win-win scenario, and will revitalize the console later in it’s life, so not to repeat a wii-situation.

    • John Andalora

      First, make the original product sell. Then make other kinds when the hardware starts to get stale.
      Also, an add-on like that would cost a lot more for a console, wrecking Nintendo’s satisfied customers that got a Wii U, and hurting the potential for others to purchase what once was a cheap console they already didn’t want.

      • Nathan Abrahamson

        that’s the thing, the average consumer wouldn’t have to get it if they didn’t want, and I don’t know where you’re getting at with the make the original product sell first, since this would be an add-on and be worthless without the basic console.

        • John Andalora

          I assumed that when you were talking about the Super Wii U being a good idea, I thought you meant the actual Super Wii U would be released instead of a patch on the Wii U.
          But even still, I think that Nintendo needs to work with what they have now, and shouldn’t be planning so far in advance. They need to make some games, and make it the popular console they want it to be before they work on improving it.

    • Fred

      What your saying reminds me of the expansion pack on the Nintendo 64. I loved that thing

  • That was great haha Nintendos going be on there feet before we know it.

  • TaintedXGamer

    …..April Fool Joke ryt?
    Nintendo…..SERIOUSLY?!….. (before i see trailer, now After)
    …. thought this Might be possible somewehere down the lane,
    but i wouldn’t bank on it. ROFLMAO

  • Sami Rautio

    I WAS LIKE YEAAAHH OMAGAAD..then april fools= me rage…………..BUT Nintendo Should make something like this. I would be ready to pay for some extra power to Wii U . I REALLY MEAN IT BY THE TRUTH OF CAPSLOCK :). that Wii U wouldn’t be so left behind by ps4 & 720..so PLZ nintendo make something like this to power up the Wii U 🙂

  • RodriYugi

    mentiro -.-‘

  • Teem Four Tress Too

    I was doubting a bit, seeing how “NINTENDO” can make a new “CONSOLE” in less than a “YEAR” But i thought that it was a great idea for nintendo to make an add on for people who already own a Wii u, rather than buy i dont know at least another $350+.

  • guestmakk

    Oh my. Bad jokes bad games and a bad console, wow Nintendo out did themselves 😉 NOW RELEASE SUPER METROID ON ESHOP!

  • This is one hell of an April Fool’s joke. Gonna be a lot of disappointed people.

  • DarkNite14

    ahaha i saw the title i thought to myself, son of a bitch, now i need to buy another console..lol

  • Lol, Nintendo trolled all the graphics whores XD

  • Happy April Fools day!

  • Kyle Berger

    LOL wen I first saw this, I thought it was a joke!

  • aaron

    april fools

  • aaron

    so good, nice one Iwata

  • I can’t believe I fell for it :-/. I went running to my wife SOOOOOOO mad, thinking: “Why would Nintendo do this to me? WHY?”….. and then my wife asked if I watched the video yet and I said no. Then she asked: “When was the video posted?”……. Then it hit me 🙂
    I’m sorry I doubted you Nintendo!! Never again!

  • This was a joke. Right?

  • cruz.hf

    We have been Beta Tested! Why not release that in first place? Oh that would make sense!

  • cruz.hf

    fuck u iwata

    • Nathaniel Lopez

      Fan made video.

  • Yea yea very funny…a better joke would have been that they had games to announce…

  • Megan Allen

    i can’t stop laughing and i this is probably less funny than i think it is

  • Megan Allen

    i can’t stop laughing and this is probably less funny than i think it is

  • tmaster

    I swear when i first saw the post i almost had a heart attack………….

  • This “news” was missing only the info of how Super Wii U will be based on PC – architecture and PS4 MEH OS. Will be expensive as #ell and late by years. 😛

  • Zorbo85

    LMFAO!!!nintendo are so PATHETIC!!!
    They do this lame joke when they should be ANNOUNCING NEW GAMES!!!not lame ass jokes!!!
    Did they do a joke on the 3ds?NO did they do an aprils fool on the wii?NO
    Hillarious how nintendo are now turning to humility to try and make fans laff instead of crying that their wii is utter shite with zero marketing and games!!!
    After E3 wii u is dead!!!

    • [000]

      It was a fan made video, and you’re the biggest idiot in the whole comments section.

  • Zorbo85

    Iwata………….I know lets play a prank on EVERY nintendo fan when our console is selling like shite, we have done zero marketing,all 3rd party are already turning their backs on our new console, even price cuts from retailers are not saving it so i know executives lets play a prank to give our fans something to smile about for 5 minutes to try and take away the fact that we have epicly failed with the wii u!!!
    This guy needs to step down and let some one else with marketing skills take over as this just made nintendo even more of a JOKE!!!

    • [000]

      Go be stupid elsewhere.

  • Zorbo85

    Nintendo wii u……………in SERIOUS trouble……….Nintendo response?……………..a PATHETIC joke video on a new console add on for the wii u?WTF!!!
    Nintendo your fans want videos of GAMES for the wii u you silly losers!!!
    Poor nintendo slurpers this video shows how embarassing nintendo have really become.
    They need to ditch the consoles and stick with the handhelds!!!

    • Nathaniel Lopez

      You’ve posted 3 times already bashing on Nintendo, I thought I’d just let you know that this was a fan video. Nintendo had no involvement in this April Fool’s joke. The video you see is an old Nintendo Direct.

    • Jimmy D. Fugate

      It’s a fan made video, Zorbobitch.

      • Zorbo85


      • Zorbo85

        Aww poor nintendo SLURPER!!!

        • Jimmy D. Fugate

          Wii U’s actually my first Nintendo console so back the fuck up. I also have a 360 and PS2….so call me a “Nintendo Slurper” but also call me a “Microsoft Slurper” and “Sony Slurper” too. K Bye.

          • Zorbo85


    • [000]

      Please. Calm down, and have a seat. Your parents really need to lock up the medicine cabinet. Chugging pills isn’t healthy.

  • wober2

    For early adopters = a connecting cable. lmao!

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    Are you fucking kidding me. This is a slap in the face to everyone who bought the WiiU already.

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    HahahaAPRIL FOOLS!

  • J_Joestar


  • Erik Nadotti

    Does this joke directly comes from Nintendo? Kind of Japanese humor, umbelivable, while people is srtuggling for low sales they are making fake video. Genious!

    • Nathaniel Lopez

      No, it does not. Nintendo had an indirect involvement by only making the video for an old Nintendo Direct announcement.

      A fan used that video and subbed it all on his own, or perhaps with a team.

  • Ian Rahn

    Is it bad that I believed this when I read it

  • Wayne Beck

    Haha lol that was Epic.

  • Scott McAllister

    Iwata should concentrate on making the Wii U better, rather than wasting resources on foolish fun.

    • Nathaniel Lopez

      Read the title for the youtube video.

      • Scott McAllister

        It’s still a waste of resources.

        • Nathaniel Lopez

          …I mean that the video is a fake. It’s fan made using videos from an old Nintendo Direct.

  • Dominic Coradazzi

    *clap* *clap* *clap*
    great April Fool’s joke… although I would’ve bought it

  • Jajajaja lol

  • Jason Wilkins

    Funny as it is to see companies joining in the foolhardiness =)

    The sad truth is this comes on the heels of announcements that the newest game engines won’t release on the console for what amounts to the very same reason this April fools joke was made to critique:


  • Michael

    Honestly, I wouldn’t be super surprised if Nintendo did reveal a Wii U Plus or something like that with more ram….They’re probably regretting only putting 2gb inside. I know that’d cause a lotta consumer complication if they did something like that, so it probably won’t happen.

  • they shouldn’t b quick 2 do another console they should just make better games 4 the wii u

  • atl hawks

    Guys don’t hate me or think i’m a troll, but seeing this it makes think Nintendo should release a Wii-U expansion drive and boost up the RAM. That will make epic and other companies shut up about the Wii-U(even though 1 GB is a lot more than the PS360s) and since the ps4 is unified, i’m not sure how big a gap is between 1 and 4

  • $41809923

    so not real would buy this to that was real too cool

  • tronic307

    I don’t know what’s better, this or iPlay!


    DAM WOW! I WANT THIS INSTEAD! WHO CARES HOW BIG IT IS! More power means it can do a lot more! 😀 Now it’ll be up to par with the PS4 and Next Xbox. BOO YA! Now I may wait to get that instead of getting the normal Wii U. HAHA! Cmon Nintendo really make something like this.

  • wimpykid456

    April Fools!

  • Kirbyomega

    Why doesn’t anyone realize it’s april fools?

    • Rinslowe

      No way it’s fake, no way. I saw it with my own eyes watching it just now on my monitor… HOW DARE YOU!!!
      Um, lol…. ;-P

      • Kirbyomega

        XD I wish it was real, but it would probably cost a couple of thousand dollars

  • zerooooo

    It would make a great add-on. It would sell WiiU’s if it were to happen.

  • C.S. Bailey

    I was expecting something funny for today!

  • makkan

    i have a wii u and i really like nintendo, but i also think this was a funny joke because the thing was so big. But i also think that the idea of powering up the wii u with something would be good, maybe more updates that would make it faster could help, or maybe a little device that you could plug in that would power up the wii u’s hardware for a cheap price or something else that would power it up so all the haters could shut up.

  • Shazaib Raja


  • RoadShow


  • Zero

    Happy April Fools

  • Jacob Brown

    Leave a message…To be honest I actually would buy this if it were real.

  • K00q@

  • that thing was so big i knew it was fake.

  • yienwae

    LOL. That thing looks like the size of an HP Laser Printer. 😀

  • Is this… a prank?

  • TheDocMontalban
