Accompanying the Wii U is the all new revolutionary GamePad controller as well as a new Pro Controller and continued incorporation of all the current Wii controllers and accessories.
Utilizing a 6" touchscreen design the newest controller offers a new perspective on the world by bringing in social and peripheral elements to game while incorporating standard gaming controls. The GamePad offers a unique combination of two screen gameplay and innovative 360-degree gaming environments.
The all new Pro Controller offers a more traditional configuration for longer, more intense forms of gaming. The Pro Controller will feature all of the same buttons and controls of the GamePad in a more compact and ergonomic layout.
The traditional Wii Remotes and nunchuks can be utilized for all users beyond the first (GamePad) user.
