Nintendo also discusses the console's internet browser

Nintendo has released a new video focused on a number of Wii U's online capabilities.


The video shows off and explains the functionality of Nintendo's new online service, the Nintendo Network, and Miiverse, Wii U's embedded social networking service which Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has described as a killer app.

Last week Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata released a Wii U unboxing video in which he provided an overview of some of the system's other features, including the account system and video chat.
