Developer Two Tribes says that there is no delay to gameplay when Toki Tori 2 is running on the Wii U GamePad’s screen. Collin Van Ginkel, the co-founder of Two Tribes, claims that during the developer’s test setups, the Wii U GamePad’s screen updated even quicker than their LCD TVs. Van Ginkel speculates, however, that the Wii U GamePad’s signal breaks down when players move far away from the Wii U console.
Two Tribes has said there’s no slowdown when playing the game on Wii U’s GamePad instead of television. What are some things that can cause slowdown for any game running on the controller?
“It’s even the opposite. In our test setups we see the GamePad screen updating quicker than our LCD TV’s if we send the exact same image to both. My guess, but this is pure speculation, is that the only time you may have missing visuals, and thus a delayed update, is when the signal breaks down when you move too far away from the console.”
