Haha, these are awesome.

[A] fresh web page highlighting Wii U features includes some rather awesome pieces of artwork. They show off-TV play, the GamePad as a web-browsing device, various TV options and, an old favourite in Japan, how the GamePad can make karaoke more fun.

They need to realize that the Wii U difference is playing good games exclusive to Wii U that make you want to buy the console. That's how it's always worked. Nobody is buying a $300 cookbook.

I do.

The real question would be, why is the Wii U hooked up to that TV.

Also, these pics are adorable.

Slightly upset that Peach is the one baking.

Watching TV and movies, singing, baking...all things that provide entertainment without spending $200 on a Wii U. Great way to showcase your system, Nintendo.

So, from the OP, I've learned:

* Luigi is an anti-social jerk
* Instead of taking the Wii U controller into the kitchen and using that like a common person, she's using it AND a television
* Bowser is easily entertained by brand logos
* Mario is getting ready to push the "Next" button so Yoshi will shut the hell up

Needs one with Mario playing Tropical Freeze and little music notes coming out of the TV and Mario is speech-bubbling "Fucking Dave Wise"

so just to be sure

this is a controller for the wii
Iwata: How hard was it to port Super Mario 3D Land to the Wii?
Koizumi: You mean Wii U.
Hayashida: It wasn't too difficult given the new tools to share assets between handheld and console teams. We had a trailer ready after two weeks.
Iwata: Aside from the cat power up, did you do anything to tweak the Wii version?
Koizumi: You mean Wii U.
Iwata: What is Wii U (laughs)
