At E3 today, Nintendo fleshed out the role of their new gaming console and entertainment hub Will U. They announced a new set of content parters, including Amazon, Hulu, Netflix and YouTube. Making use of the gyros, sensors and other bells that the Wii U controllers are outfitted with, the Wii U system also comes with an updated fitness trainer, Fit U, the newest version of their Wii Fit fitness series. (Yesterday, Microsoft’s showed off its new Kinect+Nike Trainer, taking its stab at gamified fitness). Nintendo also announced a new version of its enduring Super Mario Bros. game, aptly titled “Super Mario Bros. U,” one of a slew of updated games playable on the system. The Wii U system is estimated to cost about $400 in the U.S.
