Wii U is finally here! Nearly 18 months after Nintendo's new console was announced, Wii U launched in the UK with a special midnight event at HMV in London. Hundreds of dedicated Nintendo fans queued up in the cold to buy the hotly anticipated successor to the Wii (and get a free copy of New Super Mario Bros U). You can see all the action from the night by watching our special Wii U midnight launch video.
As ever, Mario was in attendance but this time he was joined by a group of zombies, there to celebrate the release of ZombiU, one of the big launch titles. As the fans waited for the clock to reach midnight, they were kept entertained by people demonstrating the best Wii U games on stage, including ONM's Chandra Nair who showed off his Nintendo Land skills.
The first person to get his hands on a Wii U on the night was Izzy Rahman who had been camping outside HMV with his friends since Saturday. Asked what he thought of Nintendo's new console, he said: "It's a new Nintendo console. How could you not be excited. They just bring back feelings of being a little kid again and every time a new Nintendo console launches, it's always a special moment, a momentous occasion. I can't wait to get home and start playing it."
