Nintendo's (NTDOY.PK) new Wii U console launches in its home market of Japan with expectations running high. The company wants to sell 5.5M Wii U units on top of the 17.5M 3DS it moves this fiscal year. The company hopes the addition of a handheld component to the Wii will leapfrog the device back over smartphones and tablets - which cut into the novelty of the DS - in the eyes of consumers.
