Bundles: There's likely going to be a bundle or two. Or possibly three if recent rumors were accurate.
Accessories: Namely, the Wii U Gamepad. Everyone wants to know how much these will cost, and when they can buy a second one. Or if they can even afford it.
Network: Can Nintendo really support the Wii U with a network on-par with the PlayStation Network and/or Xbox Live?
Achievements: How will Nintendo appeal to the most active among gamers?

Although, a lot of these details may be revealed before the event itself through a special Nintendo Direct Wii U Presentation, that begins at Midnight tonight, Pacific time. You can view that event, here.
