As well as this, Nintendo have unveiled a social networking feature for the Wii U called the Miiverse, a service which allows gamers to post questions and comments regarding gaming difficulties or for simply conversational purposes. Miiverse users will be able to access their feed on their PCs and smartphones as well as the Wii U itself, and use the the gamepad's front-facing camera for video chat. All of these features are shown off in this absolutely bizzare video released by Nintendo involving a lonely nerd, a zombie game and an old man with mad gaming skills.
Finally, there was the announcement of the Wii U Pro Controller. Providing a similar function to the Wii Classic Controller, the Pro Controller is a more traditional-looking pad which can be used as an alternative to the standard Wii U gamepad. Influences from the Xbox 360 controller are clear, and it looks ergonomic enough aside from some strange button placement decisions.
