For those that missed it on Nagoshi Raw here is the new ad for Ryu Ga Gotoku 1&2 HD for WiiU.

You can tell it’s for a more family oriented system. This ad is nothing like the usual Ryu Ga Gotoku affair.

For those who missed this morning’s (or last night’s if you’re in Japan) Nago-raw here’s some of the highlights along with some new details about the WiiU gamepad functionality with Ryu Ga Gotoku 1&2 HD WiiU.

  • Custom waypoints (finally!)
  • Completion lists can be browsed via the touch pad without pausing the game
  • 1 touch instant switching between gamepad and screen display

They also went over a few favorite submissions to the draw a mascot contest. Which ends in just a couple weeks!

Then ended the show by giving away some RGG5 branded curry sauces.

Official trailer for Ryu Ga Gotoku 1&2 HD for WiiU. 

Love the map functionality and the ability to swap between screen and gamepad at the click of a button.

Here’s the WiiU version box art:

Here’s the entire Nintendo Direct. The lead story is Ryu Ga Gotoku HD WiiU. Seeing Nagoshi and Iwata on stage is awesome!
