Nintendo Co's "Wii U", will be released in the U.S. on November 18 with new innovative TV and video features. This new console allow users to make personal TV and video programming lists and record shows through TiVo and other digital recording services. The price is at just under $300, with a dedicated "Super Mario" game title.

The Wii U is the first console machine to be sold by a major gaming industry company in more than six years. With a new Microsoft Corp Xbox and updated Sony Corp Playstation expected in 2013.

Nintendo hopes that its "TVii" feature will help spruce up demand. It will stream video from Netflix Inc, Inc, Google Inc's YouTube, and Hulu, taking a page from the Xbox.

A "GamePad" touch-screen controller can function as a remote control, and that second screen can be used to create personalized program lists. The controller, which enhances the video streaming and gaming experience, helped push its price tag above rival consoles. Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360 start at $250 and $200, respectively.

The Wii U will go on sale in Japan on December 8 for about $340 (26,250 yen). Nintendo will offer 23 original Wii U games. Third-party titles include Mass Effect 3 from Electronic Arts, Darksiders II from THQ, Ubisoft's exclusive Wii U title Zombie U and Activision Blizzard's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
