Nintendo TVii lets you doodle over live TV moments

Nintendo's TVii will now let users draw over top of live TV screenshots using the new Doodle feature with the programming service's TVii Tag on Wii U, Nintendo of America confirmed on Twitter.

A picture of the new feature shows a number of colors and pencil sizes that can be used, making for a fairly simplified art program. Users can also add comments to their drawing.

Nintendo's TVii is a personalized programming guide for live and on-demand content on Wii U. Players can use the TVii Tag feature to flag certain moments in the content viewers are watching, such as a play in a sporting event or plot twist in a fictional show. Using the GamePad, viewers can tag the moment and engage directly with others watching and discussing the same moment.
