With all of the hubbub and excitement it may be possible that some Nintendo fans have forgotten about us Europeans and PAL gamers, still waiting for Wii U to arrive. It's actually the worst for Japanese gamers who'll get the system last — what were the odds on that a year ago?

In any case, for many of us the pre-launch hype is still very much in action, and Nintendo has produced a series of new adverts with a "what is Wii U" theme, designed to show off the variety of game experiences available on launch day. There are a number of short 20 second versions, but there are also two longer videos that combine the various features being shown off. We've included both of these for you below; they're very similar, but there is different game footage in each.
