Did you get up early/stay up late to watch the Japanese Wii U launch presentation? You didnt? Never mind unless youre fluent in the language it wouldnt have made a whole lot of sense anyway. Lucky for you, were here to bring you right up to speed with everything you need to know via the medium of the 10 best pictures from the showcase. Or, to be more specific, here are 10 images with stupid captions. Enjoy.
This is the very start of the presentation before Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has been switched on.
Now completely active, Iwata compares the size of the Wii U GamePad with his head. Result: The Wii U GamePad is wider than Mr Iwatas head.
Here we see the actual physical dimensions of the Wii U console. Nintendo did not provide dimensions of Mr Iwatas head.
Hopefully this means Nintendo is working on a new abstract 8-bit Mario game set in a minimalist Mushroom Kingdom. Or it might mean something else completely.
For Wii Us promotional imagery, Nintendo is updating the Wiis aspirational lifestyle models with cel-shaded drawings of people that have no face.
Here are more people that have no face. One of them is a woman. We could do a 'nice arse shame about the face' joke here. But we won't. We're above that.
We predict the promotional artwork for Nintendos next console after Wii U will just be pictures of white. Nothing else. Just a vast expanse of endless white.
We like this picture of Miiverse because the Darknuts are driving me crazy! comment at the top reminds us of that joke where the guy walks into the doctors with a steering wheel down his trousers and the doctor says How do you feel? and the guy with the steering wheel down his trousers says Its driving me nuts. Its a good one.
Our Japanese is patchy at best, but were pretty sure the bit at the bottom there says Wii U will be compatible with Xbox 360 controllers.
Nintendo has produced this innovative Wii U wrist-rest peripheral for gamers with weak wrists. It will be bundled with the basic Wii U console package.
If you worked at Nintendo and you got in late two days in a row, this is what Mr Iwata would look like when he was telling you off. We imagine him to be a sort of firm-but-fair boss.
And Mr Iwata looking like hes having a stern word at us seems like an appropriate place to stop. If youre looking for actual proper information about the Japanese Wii U launch presentation, weve got an article for that.
