Nintendo Announces the Next Generation of Wii: Wii U

The rumors are true: Nintendo debuted its next-generation console, the touchscreen tablet Wii U, during its keynote address at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The Wii U tablet screen can be used to navigate and magnify the image displayed on your TV, which could come in handy for browsing the Web. Nintendo also showed off the ability to play your Wii U game directly from your tablet–handy in case someone else needs to use the TV.

While Nintendo was pretty coy about their upcoming game plans for the Wii U, they did show off a game they were calling New Super Mario Brothers Mii, which let your Mii avatars join in the run-n-jump fun alongside Mario and Luigi.

Check out the game play on this video from G4:

TGN Personalities

image The TGN Personalities YouTube channel offers amazing coverage of the E3 convention in June 2010.  They interviewed key players in several games, including MMORPGs and online browser-based games.

Video Game Devs are the secret celebrity:  they develop, strategize and create new gaming concepts and bring together thousands of people to provide gaming experiences.  They are the unseen faces who work hard to bring their babies to life.   TGN Personalities is on the forefront of giving the dish on these gamers and the games they produce.  It is as if we are in the 20s and the first movie stars are being born:  the media just hasn’t caught on to the Gaming celebrities.  Can’t wait to see what develops in the future for this side of TGN.
