The Future Nintendo's main purpose was to compete against Nintendo's then-upcoming system. Nintendo saw the system at Great Games, Inc.'s conference at E3 and decided to collaborate with them to create "an awesome system" to debut alongside the Wii U.
Through the system's main menu, many different "zones" are accessible, similar to the Wii's channels.
- Game Zone: Allows players to play a disc inserted into the Wii.
- Basic Version: System with 16 GB of internal memory, The Future Nintendo Controller, all included software, New Super Mario Bros. ULTIMATE, costs $300.
- Pro Version: System with 32 GB of internal memory, two Future Nintendo Controllers, FN Classic Controller, all included software, pre-downloaded Mario Kart Wii, New Super Mario Bros. ULTIMATE, Mario Sports Resort, costs $400.
- Supreme Version: System with 64 GB of internal memory, two Future Nintendo Controllers, two FN Classic Controllers, virtual reality goggles, all included software, pre-downloaded Mario Kart Wii and Mario Party 8, New Super Mario Bros. U, Super Mario Galaxy ULTIMATE, Mario Kart ULTIMATE, 2000 Nintendo eShop pre-downloaded points, costs $500.
All versions are available in black and white. The Pro and Supreme can also be bought in blue and red, and the Supreme can be bought in gold.
- Portable Version: So that Nintendo could save money and not make a portable console for this generation, it released a version which includes everything from the Pro Version, but batteries can be put onto the console for portability, and in games that support it (a special sticker will be on the back cover), the controller can assume the position of the television screen.
- Lite Version: This version is thin and cheap, but backward compatibility with the Wii U is removed. This model (function-wise) resembles the Wii Family Edition.
