With the Press Conferences that took place today, several pieces of information on the Wii U is now available. This would be the best place to get all of today’s news in one big Nintendo helping. Before we get into the meat of it all, I believe very strongly that we will see another Nintendo Direct for Wii U. The Press Conferences that took place today didn’t go into details about Mii Verse or their newly introduced Deluxe Digital Promotion program.
