New Wii U Details Announced

Wii U

Earlier this evening, Nintendo streamed a pre-E3 edition of Nintendo Direct, focused entirely on the Wii U. Although no launch titles were announced in the broadcast, it offered a closer look at the upcoming console. In particular, the innovative - and much talked about - tablet controller has been given a new name and redesign. Now officially known as the Wii U Gamepad, notable changes from last year's prototype include the addition of NFC functionality, a TV button, and control sticks as opposed to nubs. Additionally, the face buttons have been moved for added player comfort, as have the start and select buttons.

Dragon Quest X Announced

Dragon Quest X

Square Enix announced the newest installment in the popular Dragon Quest Series, Dragon Quest X. The game is coming to the Wii in 2012 and the Wii U at an unannounced date. The Wii U version will be graphically superior, but players with both versions will be able to play together. Square Enix has only released one screenshot of the game, as of this writing:

Dragon Quest X

The game will be an online RPG allowing both online and offline play. While offline players will be able to make allies with npcs to fill the roles that other players would normally occupy. The word massive was not used to describe the online play and any word on the scale of the multiplayer functions are just speculation. Players will create their own characters to use in this installment of Dragon Quest and players will be able to take on crafting jobs to create weapons and items for their players to use.

We braved the lines at Nintendo's booth, and had the opportunity to try all 8 of the playable demos on display for the console. Read on for wrap ups of every Wii U demo Nintendo had to offer this year.

Project Café Unveiled

Following nearly two months of rampant speculation, Nintendo took the wraps off their successor to the Wii console. Formerly known as Project Café, the new system is now officially called the Wii U. Why such a strange title? Nintendo isn't saying - yet - only that just as with Wii before it, it will conceptually make more sense sometime in the foreseeable future. While few details were given regarding technical specs, anticipated launch titles, or pricing, Nintendo did have a few small tidbits of information to share about the new console. Foremost of this information was the reveal of the new controller - which, at its core, is a 6.2" touch screen panel housed in a plastic casing. Much like its predecessor, the Wii U's controller sports an innovative design, which, Nintendo hopes developers will take advantage of to create new and compelling game experiences.
