Last month, rumors suggested that Wii U will support more than one controller but it looks like it’ll be supporting only one for the time being.The manager of Ubisoft France, Xavier Poix, has revealed to VentureBeat/GamesBeat that Wii U supports only one Wii U GamePad. Nintendo did not talk about this topic during their pre-e3 Nintendo Direct but they did reveal a new controller, the Wii U Pro controller.
GamesBeat: How many players can you get on the Wii U at once? Is it four or is it two…?
Poix: On the controller it’s just the one. One person. But you can still play with the four Wiimotes if you have four. So it adds up to five players.
