Wii U Demo Interface Shown

The demonstration pods at the Nintendo World store In New York now showcase a special demo screen which allows you to browse the cover art for any of the demo software on Wii U. People have pointed out that the interface for the demos is similar to that of the modded Wii USB loader screens. The demonstration pods allow you to select the demo cover art and either watch a video of the selected demo, or alternatively, play one of the demos. At the moment only Rayman Legends is selectable. Whether this is the final look of the OS remains to be confirmed by Nintendo. But we shouldn’t have to wait too long to find out.

        1. You’re nothing but a pussy because Nintendo have resurrected the Bayonetta franchise while your ass is hurting just because both $ony and Micro$oft have refused the offer to PlatinumGames.

          1. Bayonetta isn’t a franchise. It was one game that didn’t need a sequel. Bayonetta 2 is an unnecessary cash grab. Greedy Nintendrones….

            1. Bayonetta IS a franchise. The PS3 version sucks ass and it interrupts gameplay during loading times. The Xbox 360 version of the game has a higher Metacritic score than your inferior PS3. U just mad because SEGA have cancelled Bay2 while Nintendo have the right investment and has the publishing rights to bring that game to their newest console.


                    1. See? This guy is seething with rage. He’ll jump at anyone who dares have a different opinion than him.

                    2. I don’t rage like you, Whoreshaw. You’re angry, jealous and remedial because Nintendo have made a better video gaming console that does everything it does… and more. They want to make the Wii U system that’s economical and affordable. Just releax, will ya? It’s not the end of the world so quit being an asshurt whore and just accept it.

              1. I own both a Playstation 3 and an Xbox 360. It’s idiotic of you to assume something about me before getting the facts. There is no NEED to produce a Bayonetta sequel. It’s just Nintendo trying to create the illusion of third-party support at launch. HAVE A FUCKING SEAT.

                1. This is the reason why you’re a Nintendo hater. The infamous sub-par HD twins that you have make you a graphics puto… and a fucking poser. Have a seat and eat Tretton’s dick.

            2. Bayonetta is a franchise… and Nintendo is finishing a game that was already in development. Bayonetta 2 is not a “cash grab” Nintendo is saving the Bayonetta franchise!!!


      Manfred Linzner from Shin’en has offered a few thoughts about the power of Wii U.

      While speaking with ntower, Linzer noted that “the Wii U is the strongest console with a lot of potential for the future.” He also spoke highly of the GPU.

      Linzer stated:

      “Well, right now, the Wii U is the strongest console with a lot of potential for the future. You should not forget, that the Wii U GPU is from a different generation than the ones from the current competitors. Because of that, there are many new ways of approaching things. Which, on the one side, are easier to implement than special hybrid solutions that are currently used on the other consoles, and on the other hand, which brings with it a much better performance. In cooperation with the generous working storage you have unbelievable possibilities. You should not forget that you need developers who can actually max out the potential of a console. And with teams like Retro Studios and EAD, Nintendo has an unbeatable advantage.”

      Shin’en’s first Wii U game is Nano Assault Neo. It should be out for the console’s launch.

      Even though we with common sense already blatently knew , I have been waiting for this statement . Wiiu = NEXT GEN graphics and Innovation . RIP competitors.

      1. AMEN about Retro studios , I am replaying Metroid prime 3 corruption and I had totaly forgotten how incredible it looks on the wii . For me , its BY FAR the best looking game on wii , it gives early 360 and ps3 games a run for their money .

        1. A bit of an exaggeration. It looks like a PS2/Gamecube game, in reality. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but other than art-wise, it’s not HD console standard. That’s just silly.

          1. It looks actually way way better than anything on the ps2 and on the gamecube . Metroid prime 1 and 2 look a lot less detailed , no bloom lighting and particle effects , awful textures etc etc etc . MP3 looks a LOT better than anything on the ps2 and gamecube no doubt.

            I advise you go and compare them and then come back to me bro . Not on youtube , on the actual consoles . Im not saying it looks better than early 360 games , Just saying it looks actualy pretty close.

              1. Damn right it does :) . But seriously metroid prime 3 corruption is a stunning looking game just becuase the way Retro have designed it :)

      2. Nano Assault Neo will be the first game that I’ll be purchasing at the Wii U’s eShop. After looking at the full trailer at 60 FRAMES PER SECOND(!!!!!) [ Go to http://www.nanoassaultgame.com/neo/ ], I went ballistic. When I get the U, I’m swiping my credit card on the NFC and buy that game.

        1. Cheers bro , I thought that was for anti trolling . I neve report news , but this piece will finaly kill off those idiots and rumours suggesting wiiu isnt even as powerfull as the ps3 .

          All those guys just had a seat.

    1. Says the graphics whore who whines at the Wii U’s true power– 2GB of RAM, GPGPU, and asymmetric gameplay

        1. Too bad that Microsoft’s Xbox 720 won’t be very powerful than the Wii U… in fact, their processors is all effed up and you can’t play used games and is no longer backwards compatible with 360 games. And Sony won’t be releasing the PS4 because they’re continuing the 10-year lifespan with PS3… and they’re already losing billions of dollars, laying off over 20,000 employees, and shutting down their development studios in England (no more WipeOut). The Wii U has more swag than you, whore. Suck on that!!!!! Puto.

            1. You love playing Sony’s WipeOut. Admit it, loser. Sing Pary…? You can’t even fucking spell the name correctly. Go to grammer school, you fucking dropout. Lose weight and get a life!

                1. You’re still a loser because you enjoy sucking Jack Tretton’s dick while shoving your PS Dildo all the way up your ass. You’re still a fucking loser. Go back to your basement and dwell there.

                  1. You’re an idiot. Sony saved the gaming world from demise when the Super 8 game almost fucked everything up. They came out with the PS3 and saved the day. They buried all those shitty Gamecubes in the desert.

                    1. What exactly have sony been saving ??? okay so the 1 and 2 were successfull . Since then they have beem spiraling out of control and copying people .

                      Yeh their first parties are good , other than that , sony are disposable and replaceable as are microsoft.

        2. lol did you know that “swag” meant “Secretly. We. Are. Gay”? So you’re saying that Microsoft and Sony are secretly gay? How quaint since you claimed Ninten demo as “gay faggotry”

        3. Lol the fact that you just said they will beat Nintendo through their “swag” makes your comment look absolutely stupid…

      1. How about we not feed the trolls. Hmm? Is that too hard? Is that too much to ask? When someone leaves a comment like this, the SMARTEST thing to do is too completely ignore it. I don’t know which are worse, Trolls or the poor fools who respond to them. Don’t you see? It’s a game to them. And they win the moment you click that reply button.

        1. This guy knows the rules. Let’s start a new round:

          NINTENDO IS GAY ABOVE ALL FUCKING FAGGOTS. Go suck dicks you gay shitheads and your fallen idol known as NINTENDON’T.

      2. Not only the ram is important the video card is very important and it’s looks like WII U not have good video card

      3. Assymetrical* gameplay has existed since the 90s. I don’t know why you fanboy sheep keep preaching it like it’s something notable or amazing. It’s marketing buzzwords because frankly, nobody gives a shit about it.

          1. Only five year olds reply to everything with “says whatever the fuck sort of faggotry you’ll put here”. You’re a five year old kid, and your mom is busy fucking your bully while reassuring you not to pay attention to him.

              1. Grow up? Look at your very existence. You’re a little bitch and always will be. Commit honorable seppuku and do competent Nintendo fans a favor.

  1. I wish there was a Wii U demo station around here. Won’t be too long, I imagine. I just wonder what the actual console interface will look like.

    1. it does! im pre ordered a Deluxe Wii U and New Super Mario Bros. U at launch! im also downloading Nano Assault Neo too. this is the best Console ever XD
      Leave Luck to Heaven

  2. The game selection on the Wii U GamePad looks incredibly off the chain! Whether using the cross pad, thumbstick, or use your finger, the selection is so easy to use. Good thing that I’m already on the waiting list and I’m 9,001% sure the Wii U will dominate the console market.

            1. Not everyone should learn a language just because you know it. Be considerate of other people’s values, cultures, and ethnicity next time. KAY? I think you could learn something from a wise man like me.

                  1. Yeah… it’s funny that your ass is redder than Rudolph’s nose. Play your reindeer games at a different forum that doesn’t have the word NINTENDO. You don’t fucking belong here. It’s over. You lose. Good day sir.

                    1. Yeah… and I find it completely sad to see it. All because of Nintendo’s stocks keep going up according to the Nikkei index and having millions of Wii U pre-orders worldwide.

                    2. That’s EXACTLY what your boyfriend said to you in bed last night. LAUGH ON THAT MOTHERFUCKER! Good day sir!

    1. I’m honored to be compared to two of the greatest assholes this blog has ever seen. This si truly an amazing moment for me. I hope I can continue Aelous work and honor him well.

      Thank you,


  3. This website has the worst community of all time. I’m just going to start waiting until Nintendo Life or WiiU Daily posts these articles to read. I hate coming here.

    1. Tell me about it. Never have I ever seen Sony drones and graphic whores whine, bitch, and getting raped in the ass.

  4. Looks nice. Hopefully, the 3DS get’s an upgraded UI like this (I have no issues with what it’s got now, but this looks nice).

  5. Reblogged this on hypersonic55 and commented:
    So thanks to some video footage via YouTube we get a good look at the Wii U interface. It seems to be very clean, slick and easy to use like the 3DS user interface. It seems like when you hover over the game artwork on the GamePad, on the TV you get screenshot montages on-screen. Or when you select a video on the GamePad the video plays on the TV. Now as mentioned in the original blog post, this is only a demo and we are yet to know whether this is the final look of the Wii U interface. But hopefully the final product will be similar to this.

  6. I don’t think this will be the final look of the OS. If I’m not mistaken, Nintendo reps turned the TVs off while switching to a different demo for the people there. I guess the idea was to prevent people from seeing Miiverse or how it is integrated into the OS. I doubt this will be in the final OS since Iwata had already confirmed that the first thing you see when booting up the Wii U was that screen with the title of games and the Miis around them. That will be essentially the new OS.
