The Wii U was a video game console developed by Nintendo as the successor to the popular Nintendo Wii. They released the console in November 2012. It is considered to be part of the eighth generation of video game consoles, alongside Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One. The Wii U was the first Nintendo console with HD graphics. The system's primary controller is the Wii U GamePad, which features an embedded touchscreen. The Nintendo Switch succeeded the Wii U in 2017.
Despite being a recent console, assuming you have a decent gaming PC, emulators can play Wii U games at reasonable speeds.
