If this means that I can beat NSMBU in under 14 stages then we will finally have a worthy successor to SMW.

And the other modes are nifty too, I guess.

What?  Why?  SMW was awesome.

I suck at Mario games, so all my memories consist of my dying over and over again, on practically every level. And don't even get me started on the Forest of Illusion...

To give it credit, it's the only 2D Mario game after the first where I didn't quit after the second world. It's just that I kinda wish I did...

Wii U 1st ad US / UK

from the comment section of Eurogamer:

"Rightly or wrongly, from that ad I bet there are an absolute ton of people walking into stores and asking for a Wii U, expecting just to buy the tablet and use it on their current Wii console."

Wii U 1st ad US

Clearly they told a composer-DJ to make the most annoying record scratching sound for their ad.

Tried it quickly with Rayman Legends in GameStop. Officially not concerned at all about how this will work with 2D platforms, at least so long as L/R and ZL/ZR are mirrored or at least L/R remain secondary. Now the test will be how 3D games that depend on the face buttons work on it.

Little did Ted Simpson know, his plan of creating a killer computer virus to destroy the Eastern Seaboard would be thwarted by a killer hurricane and shoddy programming.

Nintendo Land

"...Luigi's Haunted Mansion, Animal Crossing Sweet Day and Mario Chase offer up some of the most innovative, raucous and party-fueling fun we've ever had with a console"

Plaza is filled with all things Nintendo

There's menu music for each attraction that bleeps out in NES chimes

Monita, the floating computer, guides you around the park's features

Spend winnings on pachinko-esque coin game

Win a jukebox, day/night cycle button and more

Miis from your console and other consoles through the Internet

Attraction mode: set up a Nintendo Land party; choose a time limit and player count and then head to a points-based tournament of mini-games

Multiplayer games are fun, but GamesMaster says the single-player ones are sometimes forgettable

A few games highlight "some seemingly inherent problems"

Ex: Takamaru's Ninja Challenge – "constant screen misalignment"

GamesMaster says GamePad/TV crossover usually works best when done in tandem

"As a discerning gamer, you may not find all that Nintendo Land has to offer to your liking, but should you fork out for a Wii U, you owe it to your family, to your friends and to everyone else you know, to bag a copy of this to go with it."

Graphics: 90%
Gameplay: 86%
Accessibility: 95%
Lifespan: 82%
Innovation: 92%
Overall: 86%

"An essential purchase for party lovers that whets the Nintendo appetite. Bring friends."

New Super Mario Bros. U

May look the same, but there are some "incredible tweaks"

GamesMaster feels it's easier than NSMB Wii

Took under seven hours to complete

More to the game outside of the main campaign

Most of the innovation is saved for the final levels

"Without wishing to spoil anything, we were surprised, excited, and twinkly-eyed during an excellent finale. It's almost as if Nintendo suddenly realised that they were in fact working with a Wii U, with a game-changing GamePad and everything."

Hopes Nintendo will "build on this solid, if not mind-blowing, foundation."

Graphics: 82%
Gameplay: 85%
Accessibility: 90%
Lifespan: 80%
Innovation: 75%
Overall: 82%

"A great excuse for families to gather round the TV, and an enticing glimpse of Mario's HD future."

Based on unboxing pics, and holdingthe controller... Nintendo sure knows how to build at least nice and sturdy hardware.

from NeoGAF:

Wii software (disc software, WiiWare, VC) must be accessed within the Wii mode and won't appear on the Wii U's menu

All software will run in 480p/480i and not in HD

Wii games (including VC) will not run on Game Pad

You must download all WiiWare/VC through the Wii Shop Channel, not to be confused with the Wii U's eShop. It's unclear whether or not you'll have to re-download all of your old downloadable games through the shop or if they'll come over in the Wii To Wii U transferring

WiiConnect24 will not work on Wii U

Well shit!

At least Nintendo is pretty good at fixing things.
