Nintendo @ E3 11: Wii 2 is officially called the Wii U; all the rumors are true!

Enough with the rumors… Nintendo has officially unveiled the Wii 2! The next generation system will actually be known as “Wii U.” Let the lame name jokes begin!

The controller includes two analog sticks, a D-Pad, four face buttons, four shouler buttons and a 6.2-inch touch screen. The touch screen can be used with a stylus as well as detached from the system to play simple games. And if someone wants to take over the TV, the Wii U can stream the game right to the controller. Basically, all of the rumors are true.

The screen can be used to control the action such as pitcher control in a new version of baseball on Wii Sports. There’s also a front-facing controller that can be used to make video calls. The system also makes use of all Wii peripherals like the Wi Remote, Nunchuk and Wii Balance Board and can stream a game right to the touch screen.

It looks like it is officially the first real “sequel” to a console. It’ll be available in 2012, but no price was announced.
