Nintendo airs first Wii U ad in UK

Nintendo's Wii U made its television debut in the UK today with a minute-long advertisement that shows off the capabilities of the GamePad and the ability to switch from playing a game on the television to playing it through the GamePad's touch screen.

The ad also features the ability for the Wii U GamePad to serve as a window into a part of the game not visible on the television screen, and the ability to use the GamePad to check maps and inventories.

The Wii U will release in North America on Nov. 18 starting at $299.99.
