Me too. It's so cool going to the keyboard and other sites without interrupting your view of the video. I'm feeling kind of spoiled now and am starting to wish that I could Gamepad over to the home menu or other applications, like while watching tv.

Dude, Pikmin 3 looks INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!

Sweet, now Rayman Legends. :D

Pikmin 3 looks so good.

TVii for Japan is very different to the US version. I wonder how the European one will look.

Nintendo TVii looks great for our friends in Japan.

Of course they would show Pokemon on Hulu... lol :P

Lego Iwata + LC:U footage was good.

A NSMBU 'Superguide' YT channel is coolio.

Game & Wario would be called a shovelware title by anyone else... And it is to me. *yawns for 10 mins*
'Wizard Iwata' was epic, though!

Pikmin 3 looked gorgeous again - think I'll stick with the NL version, though. Just not my genre are Strategy games.

Was sure Japan would get the Rayman Legends demo first there... xD
Wonder if we'll get Rayman in SSB4...? :D

DQX still looks like shovel in-game. That ugly DBZ art / character style doesn't help it...

TVii [which us in the UK and Europe probably won't see till, like, this time next year].
And Hulu, that UK and Europe hating media service.

Panorama View lives [from the eShop in 2013] + Google Maps - take that Apple! :)


Expecting Rayman + Lego + Pikmin + LM2 + BD + PMD 3DS dates for [the UK] later today now.
Anything else a bonus. :)

Very impressed with Wii U Panoramic View; That looked really great.

And so it ends. Well, hope Japan has an awesome Wii U launch, and now to await the NA & UK broadcasts!!! :D

I sure ours is different. There wasn't much to that presentation. Though they haven't had their Wii U launch yet.

True; This ND stream was focused primarily on Japan's launch, though we did get a few new tidbits like new Pikmin 3 footage, a new trailer to DQX and more info on Game & Wario.

Plus, we saw more of how Wii U Panoramic View works, courtesy of Google Maps. 8)

EDIT: Seems Dragon Quest X will have Cloud Saves.

ign said that Dragon Quest X is using CLOUD STORAGE to save EVERYTHING, yes the save file too, it will not house any save data on your system/sd card/hard drive.. only the game should u choose to dl it via the eshop would ..

It's an MMO, obviously it saves everything on the server.

Agreed.

Should be a Lego: Nintendo World game, with it's IPs inter-meshing in a big fantasy kingdom of some kind.
