You’ll have noticed that the leaked Rayman Legends video for Wii U features a wired tablet controller. A number of publications have speculated that the cable is due to the fact that Nintendo is having problems streaming data from the console to the controller. Online publication Polygon claim this isn’t the problem, and that the wire is simply what’s found on Wii U development kits. We should find out for certain at E3 in June.
Polygon sources familiar with the Wii U say that the tablet has a cable coming out of the bottom of it because it is a dev kit, which currently is only available wired. The wireless version of the dev kits, we’re told, won’t be released to developers until June.
