The Wii U is a system released by Nintendo on November 18, 2012. This console is an upgraded version of the Wii, much like the Nintendo 3DS is to the normal Nintendo DS.


The Wii U has a new controller with a screen on it. This controller, much like the DS and 3DS, is touch screen. To add on to this, the game can still be played without the TV needed. This new controller also can be used to see a different view of the game. With this new controller, five people can now play a multiplayer game of that sort (four with Wii Remotes and one with the new controller).

Unlike the Wii, this system does not have backwards compatibility with the Nintendo GameCube, and only to the Wii itself. However, games are still downloadable from the Shop Channel.
