Nintendo's next big home console, the Wii U, is set to launch here in the US in a week-and-a-half on November 18. That's typically when we'd expect to see unboxing videos start appearing online, but Nintendo president Satoru Iwata took advantage of his position, getting the jump on everyone with a nice head start. We've got the video below, after the break, of Iwata unboxing the Wii U Deluxe Edition console, showing off the system hardware, GamePad, and all the packed-in accessories. Check it out, and let us know in the comments if you plan on picking up a Wii U for yourself!

We will have our professional unboxing up early on the 24th, but in the meantime, check out the one above that is simply set to music to create…some…sort of mood. To everyone who received their shipments a day or two early, congrats, and we hate you.
Check out the video above if you want a look at the iPad unboxing experience.
