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™!
