The biggest change is the replacement of the two 3DS-like circular slider pads with a pair of bona fide analogue sticks, which is good news for gamers who crave more control and accuracy.
There are also two new square-like buttons, whose functions are unknown at this time. Other more cosmetic changes include the shifting of the plus and minus buttons to the right hand side as well as a light ring surrounding the home button.
A sliding of the Wii U logo to the left appears to be the last of the changes (externally at least), and although the tweeted pic has since been taken down, it would appear that Ninty has been tweaking its next gen console ahead of its big E3 release in June.
