A shorter version of this video was shown today during Nintendo’s E3 conference, but if you happened to miss that or Iwata’s discussion on Sunday, this video will walk you through all of the buttons and gizmos of the Wii U GamePad as though you have never witnessed a controller in your life.

Hopefully this week we will get some more information about the Home button and this “suspend” feature. Conceptually, it’s a very simple thing: stop the game to check on messages and whatnot, but how much are we allowed to do outside of a game, and can you suspend a game and turn the console off to effectively create a “save state?” WE NEED TO KNOW.
