While the Wii U offers a host of features, including popular streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, the games are the main attractions. As has been the case with previous Nintendo console releases, there is a new "Super Mario Bros." title debuting alongside the Wii U. There's also "Nintendo Land Wii U," a game that demonstrates all of the Wii U's new features through mini games, much like "Wii Sports" for the Wii.
The Nintendo Wii U uses a large GamePad. The controller has all the standard buttons and navigational tools, but also features a touchscreen display and a camera. For gamers who don't want to learn how to use a new controller, the Wii U Pro Controller is a more traditional peripheral, as it has no screen.
