The Wii U is slowly getting some air time on national TV, starting with Jimmy Fallon and his Late Night talk show. Fallon is a big gamer and tech enthusiast, and always showcases the latest and greatest in gaming and gadgets. Last year, it was the first TV show to show off the new Wii U after E3 2011, and this year, Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime returns once again to showcase the Wii U. Reggie and Jimmy Fallon play Nintendo Land’s Ninja Castle mini game, using the Wii U GamePad to flick throwing stars at enemy ninjas. They also show off one of ZombiU’s cool new features: use the camera to turn Fallon into a zombie.

    I saw it last night. That mini-game from Nintendo Land is both fun and addictive. Throwing stars at your enemy ninjas… where’s my training dogi? Too bad they didn’t show off more of Ubisoft’s Zombi U, but the cool feature was both creepy and entertaining.

    I’m looking forward to get the Wii U console when it’s released this Holiday season including titles from Nintendo and third party publishers. And like the Regginator says to Jimmy Fallon, “Come on, it’s Nintendo… it does everything!”

    I would have liked to have seen more of the Wii U but at least we got to see it again, but why did they pick Jimmy Fallons show?

    Other than that I’m kinda bummed out they didn’t show much of ZombiU and NintendoLand

      I think they picked Fallon because they’ve done it before. Fallon is a huge tech fanatic overall, and I think Reggie has been there… What, two tmes before? Anyone?
      I do see your point, however. For more publicity perhaps they should have been to other shows, aswell. I don’t know, but for some reason I don’t see Conan or Leno being that hyped for the next Nintendo console :p

    If you see it again you can listen Reggie saying something After Jimmy´s comment on the wiigamepad camera. Reggie said “the camera… It can act as a sensor bar, so you can literally play a game just using the controller” and you can listen how his voice almost cuts after he said it.

    I maybe he just spilled some info we already knew (by heart) but its cool to see it almost confirmed!

    You can see the LEDs in a Wii sensor bar with a video/photo camera, as you can see the photos and videos DO NOT show any LEDs on the controller, BUT it could mean only certain games will activate this features, and of course normal Wii games.

    Can’t wait to get this! ZombiU is looking great, probably one of my most anticipated so far

    Zombie U is a true zombie survival game 😀

    I mean, you can kill your own zombified self! How flipping awesome is that?

    Does anyone think that ‘Find Mii’ game is the attraction with the mario hat above it?

    I don’t see why people think that Reggie Fils-Amie is so “toweringly tall.” Using Jimmy Fallon as a point of reference (he’s 5′ 10″) Reggie is only 6′ 1″. Maybe they think that he’s so big because the only people who they have to compare height to him are little Shigeru Miyamoto (5′ 6″) and Satoru Iwata (5′ 7″).

    Haha! I laughed so hard.
