The new console stunned E3 crowds as it was shown to be the dual-sticked, touchscreen packing controller that has been rumoured for so long.
It showed off both integration with big screen games and independent, portable gaming using its own built-in screen.
The presentation video kicked off, however, with perhaps the device's most impressive feature - also rumoured - the ability to play a game on the big screen and then, seemingly being able to carry on playing using just the controller instantly.
T3's Adam Bunker notes that the Wii U is trying to do three things at once; innovate, win back the hardcore and keep the family market.
They aren't exactly easy things to do together but Bunker says the console works thanks to "mind-boggling tech inside both the console and the controller."
