Nintendo's upcoming console, Wii U, will offer deep gaming that players will have never have experienced before, according to company president, Satoru Iwata.

Mr Iwata spoke to investors before delivering Nintendo's annual report, highlighting what sets Nintendo's highly anticipated console apart from others on the market.

He confirmed that the console will be released "in the year-end sales season of 2012" and that the GamePad has a 6.2-inch touchscreen.

"With the combination of the Wii U GamePad and a TV screen, players can enjoy gameplay that takes advantage of two screens whose positional relationship is not fixed," he said.

Wii U makes "asymmetric gameplay possible" for multiplayer games, meaning the player with the GamePad will have a different role than other players, something we've known since the console was revealed at E3 2011.

"In this way, we will propose deeper game experiences and new entertainment that people have never had the opportunity to enjoy before."

"Our basic strategy is the expansion of the gaming population, which is to encourage as many people in the world as possible, regardless of age, gender or gaming experience, to embrace and enjoy playing video games," he explained.

Nintendo has yet again give as something that no other gaming company can do
I have high hopes for the WiiU. As long as they can keep third-party support running on their console, there are bound to be a lot of interesting projects on the way.

As of Nintendo, i trust they know very well what they want to do with their new hardware. Its going to be interesting to see how far Nintendo will get with WiiU in the coming time.
