The Wii U launch line-up will not support two GamePads

Wii U Nintendo News

Remember last week at Nintendo’s Pre-E3 press conference when they stated that the Wii U would be able to support two Wii GamePad controllers at the same time? Well it turns out that at least right out of the gate, it can’t. In an interview with Gamasutra Nintendo of America’s president Reggie Fils-Aime revealed that none of the game’s launch titles would support this functionality.

To be a bit more precise he stated that “It’s going to be well after launch for those game experiences to come to life.” So it seems that after media and fan backlash after it was revealed the Wii U could only support one GamePad may have encouraged Nintendo to add functionality for such compatibility in, but not soon enough to actually put it in the first game’s people will be playing.

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
