Nintendo revealed the image in a Q&A with the brains behind Nintendo Land, the game that comes bundled with the Wii U. (Nintendo, Wii U)

I actually kind of wish they would have kept this design. I've always been fan of more buttons. Especially when they are easy to access and recognize. It could have been better than the N64 controller.

Sooo... The Wii U really is just two Wii's Duct Taped together? ;-)

I love the way Nintendo think. They're the Willy Wonka of the gaming world.

Kinda looks like that uDraw tablet that THQ came out with.
