Nintendo has aired its first television commercial for the Wii U in the UK. Viewers first caught a glimpse of the advert during Sunday night’s episode of Homeland, with Nintendo stressing right off the bat that the Wii U is a "brand new console." Although the tone of the commercial is silly in nature, it strives to show off the functionality of the new controller while highlighting the potential benefits it brings to the table. Several games are used to drive the point home, including New Super Mario Brothers U, ZombiU, and Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition. Take a peek at the commercial below.
