Nintendo Wii U pictures

Nintendo has finally debuted the much-anticipated next-gen Wii console, the Wii U. If you expecting a simple refresh for the motion-gaming system that started them all you were wrong: The Wii sports a similarly compact yet more traditional look and feel of your classic consoles – deviating from this, of course, with the addition of a 6.2-inch touchscreen-tablet controller. The device also functions as the remote and comes complete with front-facing camera, stand-alone games, photo viewing, video chat, Web browsing, and more.

But don’t worry, Nintendo won’t forgo all familiarity. In addition to allowing up to four Wii Remote or Remote Plus controllers to connect at once, it is also compatible with all original Wii controllers and input devices.
