LOS ANGELES - Nintendo is introducing the world to the Wii's touchy new big brother: Wii U.

The Japanese gaming giant said Tuesday that the successor to the Wii video game console will broadcast high-definition video and feature a touchscreen controller with the ability to detect motion and broadcast video that can interact and switch back and forth to the television display.

Nintendo Co. revealed Wii U during the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

The white 6.2-inch touchscreen controller features a directional pad, microphone, dual analog sticks, two speakers, pairs of shoulder buttons and a front-facing camera.

Nintendo says Wii U will be compatible with Wii games and controllers and the system will be released between April and December next year.

The price of the new system was not announced.
