“The wait is almost over—in just 66 days, Wii U will arrive with the strongest line-up of launch software in Nintendo history,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America president.
“With the integrated second screen of the included GamePad and features that instantly enhance the way people play games, watch video and interact with each other, consumers will see how Wii U delivers a completely unique experience.”
Nintendo on Thursday unveiled a “TVii” application that lets people use the Wii U tablet-style “GamePad” controllers to access television programs or video online at services such as YouTube and Netflix, AFP reported.
According to the Japanese company, when the console is in the US, around 50 games tailored for play on Wii U will be available.
Titles will include “Assassin’s Creed III” by French videogame giant Ubisoft and a version of beloved “Call of Duty” from Activision.
Nintendo posted a net loss of 17.23 billion yen ($220 million) for the three months through June, compared with a loss of 25.51 billion yen a year earlier.
