Nintendo today jumped the gun on E3 to finally tell us what this Wii U will be all about, and boy were some of the things they shown exciting! The video was not live, but who cares, tasty info! Here is what we learned, in images!

Below is a gallery of images from the stream. Descriptions of what is going on can be found if you click them. CLICK THEM SO HARD.

One image I was not able to capture was them showing how the Wii U GamePad can be used as a universal remote for your television. If they do that right, it will be so sweet!

These are most of the things shown during the 30 minute presentation. It’s easy to see why they chose to do this ahead of E3: not only is Nintendo taking the wind out of the sales of MS and Sony, they wouldn’t have enough time on Tuesday to show this off AND all the games. We are less than 48 hours away from the main Nintendo Conference. Get Excited!

Edit: And just like that, Nintendo has the video of the presentation!
