Nintendo’s Wii U gamepad won’t be available as a standalone at launch. But it will be available when games that function with more than one WiiPad become available, according to Nintendo America CEO Reggie Fils-Aime.
“Through the launch window, there are no games that leverage a second controller. And so, during the launch window here in NOA [Nintendo of America] territories, we will not be selling at retail a second gamepad,” he told investors during a Q&A. “But certainly, when the games come out, we’ll be making that accessory available,” he added.
Nintendo isn’t saying when games will take advantage of a second WiiPad yet. We will just have to wait and see. When you need a second gamepad, you will have it. Nintendo Wii U pre-orders are selling out fast, so don’t delay if you need one for the holiday season.
