Why Wii U could make it a Nintendo Christmas

Nintendo has been pretty busy recently, particularly with releases for its Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL games consoles. But while many will be looking at picking up the latest Professor Layton adventure or New Super Mario Bros 2, others will be holding out for the launch of the Wii U.

All things considered, it’s beginning to look a lot like a Nintendo Christmas, but what will Wii U bring to stores ahead of the festive season?

Wii U – a new games console for a new generation
With Wii U, Nintendo is not just updating its existing hardware line-up, its bringing something very new and exciting to the table. The rather nifty touch-screen Wii U GamePad controller works alongside – or in some cases instead of – your main television and interacts with what’s on screen in ways like never before. The new games console comes with an incredible line up of launch titles and is available in a bundle with the family-friendly Nintendo Land and as it’s a HD device, there is great potential for enjoying video and audio content too.

New Super Mario Bros. U – the brothers are back
What better way to celebrate the launch of a new console than a fresh take on one of the most beloved franchises around? Nintendo is launching the Wii U on November 30th and will put out a whole range of Wii U games to support it, but perhaps one of the most eagerly anticipated of them will be New Super Mario Bros. U. Using the new Wii U GamePad and four Wii Remote controllers, up to five players can play together and with easy drop-in players can jump in quickly. The GamePad also allows you to play in single-player mode which means others can use the main TV.

All the above, as well a high profile games that include FIFA 13, ZombiURayman Legends, Mass Effect 3 and Call of Duty Black Ops 2, it looks like gamers lucky enough to get their hands on a Wii U games console will have plenty to keep them entertained well into 2013.
