While Nintendo didn’t unveil the actual hardware unit (you could see a glimpse of it in demo video showing off the controller), the console does appear to have support from a wide array of developers, including big names like EA, Namco, Sega and Ubisoft, Nintendo’s planning to “revolutionize” our notion of gaming once again.

Worried about your collection of Wii games? Have no fear, because Nintendo says that the Wii U is backwards compatible with all existing Wii games. Hopefully that means all of our purchased Virtual Console and WiiWare games can also be transferred over.
