People are pretty excited with yesterday’s announcement from Nintendo revealing a follow-up to their popular Wii console – they’re calling it the Wii U.
What makes the new Nintendo Wii U such a crazy console is its controller. It’s got a 6 inch touch screen display that will work in conjunction with your television to create a new layer of gameplay.
On top of that the new console will match (or possibly surpass) the PS3 and XBOX 360 in terms of graphical prowess.

There aren’t a whole lot of details regarding the Wii U just yet, but we’re gonna keep our eyes on this one.
Since this is clearly Nintendo’s craziest console ever, it seemed like the right thing to do was find the craziest covers of the iconic Super Mario theme song and submit them for review.
There are some ridiculously talented musicians out there. We’re just glad they don’t have better things to do than find crazy ways to play a nostalgic childhood classic.
