26 Wii U games in exciting new video

Nintendo show off the possibilities of Wii U

Want to know what a Wii U is? Nintendo have prepared a new video designed to show you exactly what the new console can do. Already know what a Wii U is? You should watch this video anyway because it features footage from 26 Wii U games.

We begin with a player on his own playing ZombiU before he has some light relief with Nintendo Land's Takamaru's Ninja Castle. Then the lad's girlfriend (might be his wife - we haven't checked for a ring), tells him that she wants to watch TV. No problem! He switches New Super Mario Bros U to the GamePad.

Next up, we have some multiplayer Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros U action. If you've read our review, you'll know that the Boost Mode is tough if you try to do it quickly - a point proven in this video!

Finally, we have a big compilation of loads of Wii U games that are coming in the launch window, including Rayman Legends, Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101.

    XD Oh yeah! I doubt that's what they were going for, but the similarity was uncanny.

    Perhaps! It seems a little too uncanny for my liking though ;)

    Apart from the way too British voice actors, that was one awesome ad! I'm really glad Nintendo are making a proper effort this time around. :D
