Promises of dual-GamePad on back burner

Written by David Stellmack

Still no plans to move forward on this for Wii U

Nintendo talked about games that would use two GamePads on the Wii U, but since the console only shipped with one, Nintendo promised to release a second or separate GamePad for sale next year. This was back in 2012, and while 2013 came and went with no sign of the add-on or second GamePad, we were wondering if since it was 2014 now, if this was something still happening.

According to Shigeru Miyamoto, the dual GamePad functionality for the Wii U are “not among the Objective in the short term.” So those waiting for dual GamePad support could be waiting a long time.

While we know of no titles that support the use of a dual GamePad setup, we have to guess that right or wrong the priority should be to sell more systems and generate more software for the Wii U. While we thing that everyone would admit that a dual GamePad setup does offer some interesting possibilities, we think Nintendo is right not to devote resources to it right now.

While we think that the dual GamePad concept could be something unique, it would take the right software to exploit it to the point where it would be a must have accessory and it would not be cheap of course.
