The Japanese editions of Nintendo Direct are always a mysterious and wonderful thing. Perhaps it's the fact that we can't understand a word, or that Satoru Iwata always ends up doing something weird, but something about them is just captivating.

I hope I can watch a replay of this later. I missed the first 30 mimutes or so and I don't like watching stuff halfway through.... Especially when I can't understand what the narrator in this case is saying.
Something's coming up the plumbing, poor Luigi's in a bind. Giant turtles are out to get him, Creepy Crabs are right behind. Spiders, flies. Jeepers! Yikes!, They're coming out the pipes. "MARIO! WHERE ARE YOU!!!"

My Video Chat is ready! Iwata using the Wii U to Video Chat with Reggie. That was a turn up for the books

Home screen looks interesting I hope we have more options to choose from when we are creating our Mii's.

Does any one know if you will be able to adjust brightness and contrast on the gamepad?

I read somewhere that Miiverse may available on 3DS. BTW, in Black/White there is Video AND Audio voice chat... so technically it has been available for thi DSi for quite some time.
Obviously got NSMB2 midnight of August 19th (hence the name)

It's called "Joysound Wii Karaoke U" and is a music app.

People got the wrong idea and their hopes too high about this. Miiverse will be an app on 3DS too but will be a pure news feed, with some connection between both consoles. Smartphones and PC will have the news feed alone, so you can catch up with messages and comments, etc... like twitter.

No Nintendo Land game in the box, so I guess that's gonna be pre-installed.
I'm not sure how I feel about that.
Free Nintendo points codes, 3DS and Wii U eShop codes, and many others here: http://lootpalace.com/?ref=182952. Guaranteed not a scam. PM me for more info.

No, it comes boxed in the UK Premium Pack. Iwata was unboxing the Nintendo Land-free Japanese version.
