Wii U's Nintendo Network Explained, Official Unboxing and the MiiVerse Gets a New Name


Last night, Nintendo held a very exciting Nintendo Direct conference. In the conference, the main topic discussed was the Nintendo Network. The video above focuses on the accounts that will be part of the Nintendo Network, which will no longer use a code as the Wii did, but use Nintendo Network IDs that are a step in the direction of the Xbox 360's gamertags and the PSN IDs of the Playstation 3. The Wii U can store up to 12 accounts. For more news and videos about the Nintendo Network and the unboxing of the Premium Wii U, click the button below! [NOTE] There are quite a few videos after the jump, so just remember, you were warned!


The Wii U's ability to use video chat is explored in this video. It highlights the ability to have the video on both the Wii U GamePad and the television, for a bigger picture; the ability to have it solely on the GamePad, so you can chat while you or someone else watches television and the ability to draw on the GamePad screen and have it show up on the video chat (watch out for Reggie drawing a love heart in the video above).


This is an update from NoA, which goes over the newly named WaraWara Plaza, formerly known as the MiiVerse.


Last, but not least, here is an official unboxing video of the Premium Wii U. The unboxing is done by Mr. Satoru Iwata himself and some of the little problems he had doing it might make you laugh. In this you can get a good look at what you can expect the day of the Wii U launch on November 18th.

What's your opinion on the Nintendo Network so far? What about the MiiVerse's new name, Warawara Plaza? Do you like the chat features?
