Unboxing videos are a dime a dozen these days, but here's one with a special twist: the upcoming Wii U home console has been unpackaged by none other than Nintendo president Satoru Iwata himself. Donning a pair of white gloves, Iwata delves inside the 4.25kg Premium Pack, revealing the slick black console, its matching GamePad, and a rather chunky grey power brick connecting to the AC adapter. There are also stands for both console and GamePad, plus assorted other accessories, all of which get Iwata's loving patriarchal attention as he details them individually. Give it a watch, this is the closest most of us will get to the Wii U before it finally goes on sale on November 18th.
