Move Off The Couch!
When’s the last time you enjoyed spending time with your friends or family playing video games while getting off the couch for a little exercise and spirited competition at the same time?
Gaming is a great way for families to bond -- and Nintendo, who revolutionized the gaming industry with their Wii gaming system, is ready to take it to the next level with the roll-out of their new Wii U™!
As kids in today’s day and age continue to play video games, they often become less active. Gaming with the Wii U™ embodies the best of both worlds -- the fun and enjoyment of gaming, with the chance to get in some lively activity and movement.
The Wii U™ is revolutionizing the way you experience entertainment. There are all sorts of new features as well as backwards compatibility, which means almost all of your existing Wii games and accessories will work with the new Wii U console, including Wii Remote controllers, and Wii Balance Board accessories.
The new Wii U™ includes:
• New touch screen controller called the GamePad
• Full HD graphics
• Innovative games like:
o Nintendo Land
o New Super Mario Bros. U
o Lego City
o Marvel Avengers
• MiiVerse (non-gaming)
• Video Entertainment
• Video Chat
The GamePad controller boasts breakthrough technology with its LCD touch screen controller, motion control, front facing camera, microphone, speakers and other amazing features.
The Wii U and GamePad controller can be used to watch movies, video chat, play games, and it can even be used as a remote control for your TV, and the console comes with a browser that lets people with wireless internet connection surf the internet while the other team takes their turn.
Just in time for the holiday season, the Wii U™ makes an ideal gift for any family to enjoy!
Open up a whole new experience that goes even beyond gaming.
