You're probably wondering why we're only doing an article on the Wii U now, while the Nintendo Switch is just about to come out. This is because we just bought this console for our lunch breaks at the office. Read on to find out what you think!
With the Wii U, Nintendo continues to diversify its ways of playing. A change has been made with the gamepad of the Wii U, which allows to extend the functionality of the console. You can have the controller with you anywhere in the house and play without even having to turn on the TV. And like the Nintendo DS and 3DS, it is also tactile!
And on a technical level?
This is perhaps the sensitive point of the Wii U. While on one side the PS4 and the XBox One have brought improvements in graphical power, the Nintendo product seems to be lagging behind other consoles. The Wii U works with a processor called Espresso, which is a tri-core RISC CPU etched in 45nm and designed from the IBM Power architecture. The basic version includes 8GB of memory while the premium version includes 32GB. If you know a little, you can understand that this is not exceptional.
They have always been the strength of Nintendo. Although games for the Wii U are not as well developed as games for other consoles (Wii, NDS, N3DS) in many countries, there are lots of great games available. We recently bought Mario Kart 8 and were absolutely impressed by the beauty of the maps and all the changes made since the original Wii version. We also want to try: Splatoon, Super Mario Maker, Super Smash Bros, Super Mario 3D World, Star Fox, Yoshi, New Super Mario Bros and many others. So, there are plenty of games for this console!
