With the Wii U launch only a few days away for Americans, and two more weeks away for Australians, Nintendo has released a new video detailing just what to expect from the console in terms of network features.
Nintendo's Bill Trinen features in the video, with clips from the Japanese video hosted by company president Satoru Iwata, and sees the video explaining the new Nintendo Network, Miiverse and the Internet Browser found on the console. Revealing that the system will have up to 12 user accounts available on a single system, each one using their own "Mii" character as their login, the user account system will also carry unique user data that includes game settings, game saves, bookmarks and play history.
The video also touches on that those looking to go online will require a Nintendo Network ID, which will be used for registering friends (previously the use of friend codes was required) as well as shopping on the Nintendo eShop. Another feature discussed in the video is that purchasing content under one user account in the eShop will be managed by the user, however any of the 12 user accounts on the console can access purchased items.
Check it out below for the full run down of what to expect from Nintendo's newest console.
The Nintendo Wii U will be available in Australia on November 30th.
