The Wii U is a brand-new console by Nintendo. Many journalism websites, such as The Wall Street Journal, still refer to the Wii U by calling it a “new Wii.” It has been almost a year since Nintendo unveiled their new console. When the Wii U was first introduced, Nintendo focused almost entirely on its controller while the white colored console was in the background, which looked like the original Wii on its side from afar.
Nintendo admitted that they could’ve done a better job at distinguishing the console from its predecessor and that is what the company will do throughout E3 this week. Nintendo hasn’t revealed new information about the Wii U for quite some time, but they will finally talk about it during their pre-E3 Nintendo Direct, which will air in a couple of hours.
