Click here for all of GamesBeat’s Wii U launch coverage. 

With a solid streak of Halo, Call of Duty, and Hitman games dropping almost nonstop in November, it might take a moment to remember that — oh, yeah! — we’ve got a whole new console launching this month, too.

The Nintendo Wii U hits Nov. 18 in the U.S., and we just got our hands on the fully loaded and glossy-black 32GB Deluxe Edition. We’ll report on how it plays in the coming weeks, but we can show and tell the complete package right now. And as a bonus, we’re also comparing the Nintendo Pro Controller to its popular doppelgänger, the Xbox 360 controller.
