A few days ago we were treated with new information out of Japan about the Wii U, and this week has also had a ton of Iwata Askseseses. The video released today by Nintendo of America has our friend Bill Trinen basically redescribing the things we learned the other day, but now we get to see some video of menus. MENUS, GUYS!
Again, not much new if you happened to watch the videos from last week, but now it is all in easily understandable English. In the middle of this video, because they were lazy, they show a “day-in-the-life” spot that was shown in Japan of a guy playing some Mario, sucking at it, and asking for help from friends in the Miiverse. He then goes back and forth between his TV and the GamePad playing the game (which is really cool, in my opinion), and then finally remembers that there is a football game on. Using the TV remote feature, he turns the TV to the correct channel and continues playing the game on the GamePad. Super neat.RELATED:
That’s clearly a soccer game.
America is the only place that doesn’t call soccer “football.” I was just being culturally sensitive.
