The Wii U is a successor video game console to the Wii, from Nintendo, released on November 18, 2012 in North America. The Wii U's response was mixed and did not sell very well. The Wii U console was sold with the Wii U GamePad, which is used as its primary controller. Without the GamePad, the console can still be used to play games that do not require the GamePad with the use of a Wii Remote or Wii U Pro Controller. The Wii U was released as a Basic bundle and a Deluxe bundle. The Basic bundle included a white Wii U with 8 GB of storage, while the Deluxe bundle included a black Wii U with 32 GB of storage and additional accessories.

Collection Specifics

My Wii U is the black-colored "Deluxe" model that I got for Christmas in 2021. It's used from eBay and came with an additional case and protective casing for the GamePad.
