Nov 8th, 2012

Nintendo has released lengthy Japanese trailers explaining some of Wii U’s online features, including the Internet browser and Miiverse. The first trailer shows all the aspects of Miiverse and how the new service works. The second video shows off the new Wii U Internet browser, which was recently revealed as the highest scoring HTML5 browser among game consoles. While the videos are in Japanese, it’s easy to see the features in action.

    MiiVerse Is Cool !

  • Tommy B

    It’s times Like this when I actually wish I lived in the USA instead of Australia just to get a Wii U those few days earlier

    • Master of Awesomeness

      There will be so much hype, being in america won’t help. In australia you don’t get shot in the head over a wii u at your local game shop. You do in the USA though.

      • Nintendude

        Never heard of that happening, and if something like that did actually happen, it’s probably VERY unlikely.

        • Trippster

          dude, it happens like every black friday. people get maced by moms trying to get a 3DS for there kid, a kid broke his arm reaching for a wii. it’s insane.

          • Sharkz

            This is why you pre order. LoL! Although getting shot in the head vs getting maced is quite different. Still unacceptable behavior.

      • dimaria-messi-kun-higuain fantastic 4

        that was ps3 lol at shooting people in the head over a flop that lost 8 billion and came in 3rd and lol at the ps3 first day release sales record only to sell the least ever the very next day !!!!

        got to love sony fans ether chavs or sad plastic gangsters, shooting people in game stores i detest PlayStation culture, and the kind who think ps is cool, iv never ever seen a sony console owned by a NON TROUBLE MAKER, when i was a younger man i had a N64 all the car thieves and druggys and criminals and idiots all owned ps1 then ps2 and played TRASH like Nitro kart for hours FAGS ,i obviously being cultured / educated / non ape– played mario kart 64

        • UTalltheWay

          What the hell are you talking about? As for being educated, have you read your post?

  • 30yearsofnintendogaming

    nintendo is releasing so much info… THANK YOU!!!!!!

    • NintendoMan :D

      But it’s in Japanese. 🙁

      • TheDavyStar

        Yes, but you can still understand what’s going on.

  • Dazz

    ok i hate it,when it be japanniess.

    • nintendofreak

      yeah cant understand any shit of wat dey r saying

      • zonda777

        Then pay attention to what else is going on. It’s not that hard to figure out.

  • SUperMetroid1234

    arrrrrrrrrgh no subtitles

  • Rage quit

    Ah great demonstrations on the browser and the miiverse so freaking awesome

  • Starfoxguy

    Only a week left. Who else is excited.

    • NintendoMan :D

      I’m so excited I can’t feel excitment. Literally.

    • HyrulianUtopia

      This guy!!

    • Nintendude

      Most of the people on this website: “Yaa!”

    • choda

      I cant take it anymore just give me my wii u.

  • Goten

    First commento omega the hand best move everr inazuma eleven!!!

  • Noteak

    I want one so bad!

  • Linskarmo

    Very nice. But they’re kind of hard to understand.

    • 007 1/2


      • Linskarmo

        I meant it’s hard to understand how it works with all those Japanese letters everywhere. But it does look cool.

  • smashninja22

    To freaking awesome. Best social features and browser for a console ever

  • Hibill18

    I’m gonna be like the guy at the end of the first video: too busy playing with the Wii U to eat dinner!

    • Nintedward

      I’m gunna be like him too making tea whilst gaming ^_^ .

      (Japanese Tea is outstanding btw!, I have a few types !!!)

      • Superstick

        Yup. I love how sophisticated they made the guy in the trailer. First he’s too busy with wii u to eat dinner then he’s to busy to drink his tea then he’s too busy to watch tv even though he was the one who turned it to the TV! XD

        • Superstick

          So I can really do all that while doing other activities? That is freaking awesome! BTW somebody help me out with this big problem. I have a sister (9) and a brother (6) They are coming back to live with us for the summer so i have to decide which controller sets to get. Hm?? I was thinking about getting the pro controller for them but that is only used for the games like zombi u and stuff and what not but it is cheaper with the exception of the nunchuks. But if I give them the Wii remotes I’ll have to buy the nunchuks too which slaps on 40 more bucks but is used in more games. Dang I can’t choose!!!

          • Nintedward

            A wii remote and nunchuck and a pro controller would be my ultimate suggestion.

          • Ninteggedon

            just buy them a wiimote without nunchucks

        • TheDavyStar

          I just feel that it’s emphasizing on the “Otaku” problem to much.

      • Hibill18

        Hahaha! Good call, but I don’t have Japanese tea, so I’ll settle for black tea.

  • Xadrin

    Sounds like a huge step forward for nintendo =)

  • zuxs

    Sexy features

  • Come at me bro

    I wish this was in English…….

  • Joesatmoes

    I dont care that they r long- that is a good thing imo, cuz u learn mor about it. i would, however, like to know WHEN THE HELL THE ENGLISH TRAILERS COME OUT!!!!!

  • WanowZuk

    I’m to happy say that as of last night I preordered the Nintendo Wii U. Ever since Nintendo’s E3 (2012), I’ve been highly skeptical of the system. Yesterday’s ND clearly was a success and showed just how creative and clever this console can be.Nintendo Directs surely are amazing. ^__^

    Also, how awesome would it be if Nintendo Network could be integrated with Steam? :O

  • Ledreppe

    I’ve gone into meltdown, this is so awesome!

  • NintendoMan :D

    In the second video I was thinking “DON’T YOU DARE SPILL TEA ON THAT GAMEPAD!!!” This is truly an 8th gen console. Anyone who thinks otherwise really needs to watch these videos.


    they will have to up the battery life because i can see myself and my wife using this gamepad for everything.i wounder if both gamepads can be used at the same time and stream diffrent internet content?

    i was going to purchase a new kindle fire but i just realized that the gamepad will be just like a tablet,so i just saved 200$ buy purchasing the fearless it’s like a 2 in one xbox live account is over in a few week’s,so i no longer have to renew my x-live with micro-soft-dick’s because the wii u online will be FREE.

    i love you fearless, P.S ”hurry up with Zelda”


    • Nintendude

      I like how you made your annoying habit into a joke at the end.

  • jon

    mita mita manwa what i need a translation

  • brawl

    Idk if its just me, but im getting this feeling of excitement that i only remember getting when i got the Wii….

  • NintendoFlo43

    im really exsided about Miiviewrs it will make it easyer to get help on a game sheare a high score or levil u created.

  • HyrulianUtopia

    I read somewhere that you couldn’t watch videos, but now I know that it can! Can’t wait!

    Anyway, what are they saying? Tranlation please.

  • HyrulianUtopia


  • Mida

    So many features!!! Just wished it was a multi touch but whatever

  • fireheartis1

    Ok tell me if I’m reading to far into this since I don’t speak Japanese. It looked like the Miiverse automatically translates the text that a person typed. It looked like to me that an American typed in English and this guy was seeing it in Japanese. Is this correct or am I just wishful thinking? lol 🙂

    • Big N

      This might be a good feature if they are. No language barrier anymore!

    • Stoo

      No he was typing in Romaji, the romanisation of japanese, and it puts it into kanji, I think most Japanese keyboards use Roman letters, he was typing how you would see Japanese words if they were in English letters.

  • rob lucci

    they didnt show the part when he used the browser to look up hentai….

  • Fireheart

    lol I guess they didn’t know who I was and didn’t post my last comment. I used the wrong user name ha ha. Anyways like I stated earlier it looks like Miiverse will automatically translate the text into different languages. Does this sound true to anyone or am I looking to far into the video? I don’t speak Japanese so I didn’t know what exactly was going on, but that’s how it seemed to me. Any thoughts on this anyone?

    • Ninteggedon

      it did look like that……. notice how the keyboard had english alphabets, but when he typed the letters was turned into japanese

    • TheDavyStar

      Sorry but this has gone on too long now.It’s a Japanese, he’s not flashing this “Translation” to westerners. Anyway, Reggie said you can only use miiverse to chat to people in countries that speak your language. Also, that’s romaji, a japanese alphabet that spells out the sounds in latin letters (The japanese don’t have letters, only symbols representing sounds) and then converting them to real japanese figures,which I guess is translation but no not really.

  • Dan

    I hope the browser is fast as iphone 5 ,, damn

  • BananaPwnz

    I have a feeling I’m gonna use this feature A LOT!

  • Aaron

    Sadly, and I know I probably will get a thumbs down for this, but I preffer the older home screen design, this one seems a bit yellow…

    • Suiadan

      Sure, I’ll give you a thumbs down…

      Well, I was too lazy to move my pointer the extra 2 millimeters, so you got a thumbs up instead.

  • I Dont Know My Name

    This is great, a good video to show how the wiiu works

  • NoPUNintendo

    I can barely contain my excitement. Growing up I had two TVs, one for gaming, one for my shows. Wii U Gamepad solves that childhood problem. Now if only I knew what to do with the other 8 TVs…

  • Kirbymon123

    So you can play wii u games without the gamepad (00:20 on the second vid)? Thats cool, like if I don’t want my friends to fight over who gets to use the gamepad, I can just hide it. Also, the gamepad comes with a stylus right? Because it feels weird using my fingers.

    • Kirbymon123

      Too bad I’m not notified when I recieve replies… Y’know, why do you even need our emails then?

      • lakersfan

        Yes there’s a stylus that sits in it’s little hole like on DS.

  • SortableShelf19

    Woo! This is gonna be sweet!

  • TheImaj

    Super fresh.. His clock was dope too.

  • Ninfintendo

    Isnt that guy looking little…Forever alone ……kind if geek guy in hes own little renthouse =________O …but anyway yes that internet browser thing looks pretty good .. i know i can watch movies with my friends ( IN NIGHT) NOT A GOD *****….HOLEDAY….not from netflix…or anykind of that but theres free websites 😀 to watch any movie. have to figure out how to share internet connection with my net stick. :/ i didint have net on wii cos i didint know how to connect it with netstick … maybe some kind of wlan box +net stick connecttion.? :/

    • TheDavyStar

      Connect it with broadband…if it’s security protected there’ll be a security key somewhere on the broadband box.

  • marioU

    how bout gamepading while driving?

  • WarioForever

    On NSMBU, I don’t like recycled music from NSMBW.

  • nintendoododo

  • bb
