It’s been officially announced! The next gen Wii we’ve been hearing rumours about has finally be unveiled at E3. Named the Wii U (quite an odd name), it will feature HD graphics like its next-gen counterparts. However, the real innovation is in its controller. The controller will have a touch screen, two analog sticks, a D-pad, the usual ABYX, LR, and an added ZL and ZR. Information can be found at these locations:

I have high hopes for Nintendo and their new console. I certainly hope they don’t disappoint!
